Here we present the list of top 10 best Country Wedding songs of all time 2017.
#10. “Stealing Cinderella” – Chuck Wicks
This is an ideal father-daughter dance for the reception. This is an endearing track written from the perspective of a man who is going to ask his love’s father for her hand in marriage. He soon realizes that her father is always going to see her as the little princess in his life. She is a grown woman capable of making her own choices and living her life, her dad is always going to think of her as the same little girl who went running through the sprinkler or who he helped to ride her first bike. It’s a great way to reconnect a father and daughter who are going to be emotional around such an important day.
#9. “ Forever and Ever, Amen” – Randy Travis
Randy Travis delivers an absolutely perfect song for use in a ushering people out of the chapel music time, or a great track for a little upbeat dancing during the reception. The song, much like you might imagine, is about loving someone wholly and completely forever. This song is so fitting because it plays so nicely into the wedding vows that will play such a huge part in the day, and then this is a song to reinforce those same vows of love and cherishing one another for as long as the two have one another.
#8. “Unanswered Prayers” – Garth Brooks
Garth Brooks is often thought of as one of the greatest Country music artist of all time, so it seems fitting that he would have a song on the list. While there were numerous songs of true love that Brooks was responsible for performing, perhaps the most fitting of these tracks would be “Unanswered Prayers”. This is basically a story about a man realizing that God guided him to find the perfect woman for him that matches him completely, and is someone that he is truly thankful for. Despite having prayed in the past for other relationships to work out, he now thanks God for the unanswered prayers that would bring him together with the love of his life.
#7. “When I Say I Do” – Clint Black and Lisa Hartman Black
Clint Black and his wife Lisa Hartman Black rose up the charts with this hit couples track. This is a great song for your Country wedding due to its direct ties to the marriage vows and its sincere and heartfelt lyrics. Clearly having been together for some time when the song had been written, the singers tell of the struggles that have existed as well as all the great times that they have shared together. But that when either one of them said “I Do” they meant that through better or worse, through the thick and the thin, that they will always choose each other over anything else.
#6. “You Were Always On My Mind” – Willie Nelson
Willie Nelson isn’t always one of the first people thought about for wedding songs. However, not all weddings are love at first sight, never any pre-marriage problem kind of deals. Drama is something that can impact everyone, and some of the best relationships on the planet had rocky beginnings. This is what makes a song like “You Were Always On My Mind” from Willie Nelson such a powerful and interesting choice to use for your wedding. The song details a man that kept trying to walk away from a relationship that he was in, even pursuing new relationships and trying to move on with his life. No matter what he did or what had happened, his true love was always on his mind.
#5. “I Love The Way You Love Me” – John Michael Montgomery
This is a moving song about not just loving someone else, or caring about someone else. John Michael Montgomery performs a song that tells the woman in his life that he loves the way that she loves him. That is a truly unique statement and it’s a very personal one. It isn’t as basic as just saying that you love someone else, but how grateful and appreciate you are of the kind of love you feel from your spouse. This is an excellent choice for slow dances during the reception, where the newlyweds can think about the profound love that resonates throughout the room all evening. If you aren’t a great big fan of this track, JMM also has another quality consideration for this top 10 list in his recording of the mega hit “I Swear” (also made popular by a cover version performed by All-4-One).
#4. “When You Say Nothing At All” – Keith Whitley (also Alison Krauss)
This is a song that speaks to a love so deep that it transcends mere words. “The smile on your face let’s me know that you need me. There’s a truth in your eyes saying you’ll never leave me.” Love isn’t always something that is necessarily vocal and abrasive, and this song eloquently describes that deep and understood love between two people. “When You Say Nothing At All” was originally performed by Keith Whitley, and his version of the song is equally as good as the later released version of the same exact song by modern Country artist Allison Krauss.
#3. “It’s Your Love” – Tim McGraw and Faith Hill
This is the second addition from a couple on this list, both sets being a husband and wife combination. With the superstardom of Tim McGraw and Faith Hill exclusively, it was no surprise when their collaboration “It’s Your Love” rocketed to the top of the charts. This is a song that allows a two party approach to describing the love that a husband has for his wife, and that the wife has for the husband. The two join one another in singing the chorus in harmony, which states: “If you wonder about the spell I’m under, It’s your love.”
#2. “Bless The Broken Road” – Rascal Flatts
Rascal Flatts are most known for this song. While they have had numerous hits in their successful career, none have carried the kind of weight and lyrical genius that this particular song personifies. The band wrote the song so that the singer would be describing that while the road getting to where he is hasn’t been easy, and it was full of heartache and grief, that it was a road that God needed him to be on to find the one that he was meant to fall in love with and be with forever. This is a great song for those that are truly believing that they have found their soul mate, because almost anyone would have had to sift through some coal and soot until they found the shining diamond of their life.
#1. “I Cross My Heart” – George Strait
While George Strait inevitably knew that he had a hit song on his hands when he recorded “I Cross My Heart” for the Pure Country soundtrack, he likely didn’t realize that it would be deemed the most suitable Country wedding song of all time. There is no better song that exists in all of Country music that can better describe the love that one person can have for another. This is one of the best songs that a couple can use for their first dance of the reception, as it has timeless lyrics and provides an atmosphere of appreciation and love.
Any of these songs would be just perfect for the special dances that new spouses can share along the dance floor. In addition this list also includes a special song just for that father daughter special dance that is so common in wedding receptions. No matter what kind of vibe your reception ends up having, there is nothing that sets the tone of love and devotion quite like these iconic country love songs that have made up this list.
