Timber, I'm Falling In Love is a single release by Patty Loveless, recorded in the spring of 1988. It was included on her third album with MCA Records, Honky Tonk Angel, with the single being released in May 1989. It was the third single released from the album.

Background

"Timber, I'm Falling In Love" was Loveless' first No. 1 record on Billboard's Hot Country Singles chart and according to her, "I was in my producer, Tony Brown's office, and we were looking for material. He played it and I remember thinking it sounded like an Everly Brothers tune."

Relying on the instincts, Tony Brown brought in a relatively new country artist at the time, Vince Gill, as background vocalist for this song. Loveless said, "I think a lot of people in the industry knew who Vince was, but the public didn't know enough about Vince Gill yet. Before I recorded 'Timber', Vince sang on a song called 'I Did' from my debut album. It was just one of those things that felt like blood. It felt like I was singing with a family member. I thought it turned out to be a wonderful record."

The song charted for 18 weeks on the Billboard Hot Country Singles and Tracks chart, reaching the top of the chart during the week of August 12, 1989.
