"Love Will Always Win" is a song written by Gordon Kennedy and Wayne Kirkpatrick. It was originally recorded by American singer Faith Hill for the international release of her 1998 album Faith, also titled Love Will Always Win. It was later recorded by American singers Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood for the former's The Lost Sessions, an album contained within his 2005 box set The Limited Series.


Faith Hill cut the song in 1998 for the international release of her 1998 album Faith, produced by herself and Byron Gallimore.[1] In 2005, Garth Brooks recorded the song as a duet with his wife, Trisha Yearwood, for the album The Lost Sessions, a compilation of new and previously-unreleased material within his 2005 box set The Limited Series. Brooks and Yearwood performed the song on The Oprah Winfrey Show.[2] Allen Reynolds, Brooks's longtime producer for two decades, produced their version of the song, although a review from Billboard magazine erroneously gave the production credit to the song's co-writers (and Brooks's longtime collaborators) Gordon Kennedy and Wayne Kirkpatrick.[3]

Critical reception[edit]

Chuck Taylor reviewed the single favorably in Billboard, calling it "a beautiful and timeless song of devotion" and "simple and straightforward".[3]
