"Love You Out Loud" is about a man's desire to have everyone know how much he loves his significant other. Joe Don Rooney said of the song, "That was another one we got when the tracks were finished. It knocked us out. We just knew we had to cut it. It’s Rascal Flatts to a "T". It’s energy, fun, all about being in love, and what any man would want to do for his girl."[1]
