"Safe in the Arms of Love" is a country music song written by Mary Ann Kennedy, Pam Rose and Pat Bunch in 1986. The song was originally recorded by the American country music band Wild Choir. It was issued on their self-titled debut album in 1986 and was also released as the project's lead single. The song failed to chart. A music video, directed by David Hogan, was shot for the band's version and was scheduled to be broadcast on MTV, but due to a program change, never aired.


The song was later recorded by Baillie & the Boys in 1989 on their Turn the Tide album. In 1994, two of the song's co-writers, Mary Ann Kennedy and Pam Rose who were performing as Kennedy Rose, recorded the song on their second album, Walk the Line.

In late 1994, Michelle Wright recorded and released the song as a single the following year. Her version was included on her 1994 album The Reasons Why. The song also recorded in 1995 by Martina McBride on her album Wild Angels. McBride released her version as a single shortly after Wright's version.


In the song, the female narrator states that she is tired of being on her own, and that she wants a lover.

Martina McBride version

Martina McBride recorded "Safe in the Arms of Love" in 1995 and released it as a single. McBride's version can be found on her 1995 album Wild Angels. The video for the song was shot in Montreal, Canada at the training school for the Cirque du Soleil. It features acrobats and performers in full makeup.

Critical reception

Billboard gave McBride's version a positive review, saying that it "sounds custom-made for country radio" and is "nicely complemented by the backing vocals".
