Wow, talk about a performance that'll knock y'all off your feet. "Making Believe" has been covered numerous times by several big name artists, but one of the most memorable renditions has to be by Emmylou Harris. Her stunning voice will capture you, pull you in, and keep you intent on her performance until the very end.
"Making Believe" was written and recorded by Jimmy Wok, but didn't become a hit until Kitty Wells released her version in 1955. Known as one of the all time favorite country songs, it's been covered by Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Ray Charles, Dolly Parton, Ernest Tubb and even the punk rock favorite, Social Distortion. We can't forget the timeless duet by Conway and Loretta. The song is a slow, heartbreaking ballad about not having the ability to get over a former lover and having to make believe that they're still in love. Emmylou's version was released in 1977 and charted in both the U.S. and Canada.
Emmylou's rendition is brilliant and showcases her phenomenal talent. This legendary country singer's performance is a must-see! Check it out!

Making believe that you still love me
It's leaving me alone and so blue
Still I'll always dream, but I'll never own you
Making believe, its all I can do
Can't hold you close when you're not whit me
You're somebody's love, you'll never be mine
Making believe I'll spend my lifetime
Loving you and making believe
Making believe I never lost you
But my happy hours are so few
My plans for the future will never come true
Making believe what else can I do
