Boudleaux and Felice Bryant shared a one-of-a-kind songwriting partnership, writing hits including “Bye Bye Love,” “Love Hurts,” and “We Could” for musicians such as the Everly Brothers and Little Jimmy Dickens.
The Bryants’ love story informed, inspired, and sustained that decades-long professional partnership and their songwriting artistry, according to their son Del Bryant. Here, he remembers his parents’ creative and collaborative relationship during an opening event for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum exhibition "We Could: The Songwriting Artistry of Boudleaux and Felice Bryant.”
The Country Music Hall of Fame members’ songwriting success wasn’t just limited to love songs, Del Bryant says, because “they worked really well together on cheatin’ songs, they worked really well together on misery songs, on folk songs, on drinking songs. The fact that they loved each other so much made it easy to work together, and out of that came all kinds of songs.”
