From the first dance to songs for your parents, here are ten must-play country wedding songs.

10. “Bless The Broken Road” – Rascal Flatts

“God blessed the broken road that led me straight to you”


When you marry your soul mate, everything makes sense and you’re thankful for previous broken hearts because they led you to your true love. This song tells that story and paints God’s plan perfectly.

9. “From This Moment On” – Shania Twain

“I give my hand to you with all my heart / Can’t wait to live my life with you, can’t wait to start / I promise you this, there is nothing I wouldn’t give / From this moment on”


This song’s a great option for your first dance. It’s easy to get lost in your special moment, as you marry the person of your dreams, with this Shania Twain hit.

8. “Hey Pretty Girl” – Kip Moore

“Hey pretty girl, you did so good, our baby’s got your eyes / And a fighter’s heart like I knew she would /Hey pretty girl, you did so good”


This song truly tells the story of life and finding love. From a first date to marriage and starting a family, this is the perfect song to dance to on your wedding night.

6. “Then” – Brad Paisley

“There were people around, but I didn’t care, I got down on one knee right there / And once again, I thought I loved you then


This song’s about a love that keeps getting stronger, as it carries the listener through the stages of life. You think you love someone whole-heartedly, but you’re constantly surprised that you love them more and more every day.

7. “When You Say Nothing All” – Keith Whitley and Alison Krauss

“The smile on your face lets me know that you need me / There’s a truth in your eyes sayin’ you’ll never leave me / The touch of your hand says you’ll catch me if ever I fall /You say it best when you say nothing at all”


This song expresses the type of love we all strive to find. On your wedding day, no words can explain the feelings between you two.

5. “I Don’t Dance” – Lee Brice

“I don’t dance, but here I am, spinning you around and around in circles / It ain’t my style, but I don’t care, I’d do anything with you anywhere”


When someone takes you out of your comfort zone and makes you feel complete, you know you’ve found the one. Lee Brice wrote this beautiful song for his wife, which was their first dance at their wedding reception.

4. “I Cross My Heart” – George Strait

“From here on after, let’s stay the way we are right now / And share all the love and laughter that a lifetime will allow”


In this classic country song, King George sings about making each tomorrow the best it can be by promising to stand by each other through everything.

3. “Mama’s Song” – Carrie Underwood

“Mama, there’s no way you’ll ever lose me, giving me away is not goodbye / As you watch me walk down to my future, I hope tears of joy are in your eyes”


There weren’t many mother/daughter wedding songs until Underwood released “Mama’s Song.” This song wraps up a mother’s emotion as she watches her daughter get married.

2. “Forever and Ever, Amen” – Randy Travis

“As sure as I live, this love that I give is gonna be yours until the day that I die”



1. “I Loved Her First” – Heartland

“From the first breath she breathed, when she first smiled at me / I knew the love of a father runs deep and I prayed that she’d find you someday.. But it still hard to give her away, I loved her first”


The biggest tear-jerker of a wedding may be the father/daughter dance. This song emotes the feelings of a father as he gives his daughter away on that special day.
