Music videoEdit

The music video for "I Would've Loved You Anyway" was made following the single's release. The video was filmed in Spain, to avoid using noticeable landmarks in Nashville or Hollywood backlots. The video begins with Yearwood in the back seat of a car, leaving the home of her lover. One particular scene showcases Yearwood and her lover having a conversation (presumably ending their relationship) on a majestic cliff overlooking a village and rolling hills. Yearwood is also featured singing alone in a traditional Spanish villa.
