"She's in Love with the Boy" is a debut song written by Jon Ims[1] and recorded by American country music artist Trisha Yearwood. It was released in March 1991 as the lead single from her self-titled debut album. The song reached number one on the Billboard U.S. Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart and was the first of five number ones on the country chart for Trisha Yearwood.[2]


The song is a ballad about a teenage couple named Katie and Tommy in a small town becoming betrothed. Katie's father does not approve of their relationship, and after the couple returns home late after a date, he angrily confronts them; but Katie's mother comes to their defense, pointing out to Katie's father that they were no different from Katie and Tommy when they were teenagers and how her own father disapproved of the relationship, but she married him anyway and that Katie will do the same with Tommy.

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Marc Ball and premiered in early 1991. It takes place on a farm and it shows some farm animals moving to the music and it shows shots of a pre-teen couple, a young adult couple, and an elderly couple, along with Yearwood sitting on a stool singing.
