"She's Always Right" is a song written by Richie McDonald, Phil Barnhart and Ed Hill, and recorded by American country music singer Clay Walker. It was released in January 1999 as the first single from his album Live, Laugh, Love. It peaked at #16 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks charts, becoming his 17th top 20 hit on the chart.


Walker told Country Weekly, "I loved this song from the moment I heard it. I love it when men are able to let their women be in control, because, to me, that's a sign of strength. I also love the lyrics. My favorite line is, 'She likes chocolate about as much as she likes me.' In my case, that's probably true!"[1]

Ara Jansen of The West Australian commented to Walker about the line in the song about his partner loving chocolate as much as she likes him and Walker stated, "The quicker you realise that, the better off you are. Men stay the same and I always smile when I sing that song. I'm a much happier person in my marriage than I was five or six years ago because I figured that out."[2] Walker told the Lodi News-Sentinel, "I'm a romantic, so I like love songs. I guess there are a lot of people out there that are in love or want to be in love."[3]

Richie McDonald who co-wrote "She's Always Right" previously toured with Walker as a member of Lonestar in 1996.[4]


"She's Always Right" is about a man whose lover according to him is "always right" and perfect for him no matter what she does. She is always there beside him when he needs her.


Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic in his review of the album wrote "She's Always Right has a good sense of humor."[5]
