“I Can’t Stop Loving You” is a popular song written and composed by country singer, songwriter and musician Don Gibson, who first recorded it on December 30, 1957, for RCA Victor Records. It was released in 1958 as the B-side of “Oh, Lonesome Me“, becoming a double-sided country hit single. At the time of Gibson’s death in 2003, the song had been recorded by more than 700 artists.
Gibson wrote both “I Can’t Stop Loving You” and “Oh, Lonesome Me” on June 7, 1957, in Knoxville, Tennessee. “I sat down to write a lost love ballad,” Gibson said in Dorothy Horstman’s 1975 book Sing Your Heart Out, Country Boy. “After writing several lines to the song, I looked back and saw the line ‘I can’t stop loving you.’ I said, ‘That would be a good title,’ so I went ahead and rewrote it in its present form.”
The song was covered by Bryan Adams in 2014 at Bush Hall, performing the song in an acoustic version which completely nailed it.
