Country Strong! The Best Country Wedding Songs


Whether or not you're a Southern bride, chances are, you're going to play at least a few country songs at your wedding. Let's be serious, can you imagine a world where couples didn't dance to Rascal Flatts' "Bless the Broken Road" for their first dance? Exactly. In light of that, we curated a playlist packed with country hits that couples of all kinds will love.

The first-dance song options are, of course, endless. Keith Urban's "Making Memories of Us," Lonestar's "Amazed," and Shania Twain's "From this Moment On" are basically standards by this point. And for good reason — something about the twang of the instruments with the heartfelt lyrics make them feel instantly personal.

Our picks go way beyond just those love songs. We happen to love Rhett Atkins' "She Said Yes" and Trisha Yearwood's "She's in Love With the Boy" for processional music. And for the reception? Zac Brown Band's "Chicken Fried," Billy Currington's "Must Be Doin' Somethin' Right," and Blake Shelton's "God Gave Me You" are guaranteed to get your guests on the dance floor, whether it's for a full on dance party or for a sweet slow song.

If you're not a country music fan, we dare you to listen to this playlist and not come away with at least one new addition to your wedding music list. Sit back, relax, and press play!
