AllMusic Review by

I Love Country: Hits of the '80s is an excellent mid-line collection that contains 20 hits. Although the packaging is a little skimpy, all of the recordings are the original hit versions, which makes the compilation an excellent choice for casual listeners and the budget-minded. Among the highlights on Hits of the '80s are Johnny Lee's "Lookin' for Love," Dan Seals' "Big Wheels in the Moonlight," Juice Newton's "The Sweetest Thing (I've Ever Known)," Conway Twitty's "Slow Hand," Dottie West's "Are You Happy Baby?," Earl Thomas Conley's "I Can't Win for Losin' You," Janie Fricke's "It Ain't Easy Bein' Easy," Alabama's "Touch Me When We're Dancing," Crystal Gayle's "You & I" and Holly Dunn's "Love Someone Like Me."
