Country songs always seem to find a way to express the words we aren’t always able to find. So this Father’s Day, if you can’t find the right card or the right gift, here are 10 songs that perfectly describe everything we love about dear old dad.
“A Father’s Love” – Bucky Covington
Actions speak louder than words in this song about a son who learns that saying “I love you” doesn’t always mean saying those three words out loud.
“Drive (For Daddy Gene)” – Alan Jackson
A song about an old plywood boat that captures many memories. Memories that are remembered long after the moments are gone and passed down to the next generation.
“He Didn’t Have To Be” – Brad Paisley
A song for all of those step-dads who stepped up to the plate and loved a child as if they were their own.
“Just Fishin’ “- Trace Atkins
This Trace Adkins song is a sentimental story about how children learn and grow through the little moments in life. It’s a song about cherishing the time you have before they become memories.
“Love Without End Amen” – George Strait
“Love Without End, Amen” is the true depiction of what a father is. He is a man who teaches and loves endlessly as a child grows and learns no matter how many mistakes they may make.
“In My Arms” – Mark Wills
A beautiful song about a father cherishing the moments he’s able to hold his little girl before she grows up and finds her happily ever after.
“That’s My Job” – Conway Twitty
Here’s an emotional song about a son who has a dream about losing his father. When he asks what he would do without his dad, Twitty’s response is, “that’s my job.”
“The Best Day” – George Strait
Another great song about dads from George Strait. “The Best Day” is a song told through the eyes of a child. It focuses on the big moments in that boys share with their fathers.
“Watching You” – Rodney Atkins
There’s no one a young boy would rather look up to than his father. In “Watching You,” Rodney Atkins portrays a fun and carefree relationship between a father and a son who likes to copy everything he does, both good and bad.
It’s a great song that shines a light on the how hard fathers can be on themselves as a role model. Sometimes dads judge themselves for what they do wrong, but this song shows that, in the midst of all of it, there is a lot they’re doing right.
“You Can Let Go Now Daddy” – Crystal Shawanda
Here’s an emotional song about the moments in which a father must learn to let go and let their child grow up on their own terms.
