8. "Our World" by Smithfield

"Those were the nights that had no tomorrow. Yeah they went on and on and on just like a tires on a '95 Bronco. Nobody to slow us down. Baby we were falling too fast. They were calling us crazy.

Oh, it's a beautiful thing, don't think I can keep it all in. And if you ask me why I've changed all I gotta do is say your sweet name.

What about the country wedding music for the other man in your life? Here are our top ten picks for dancing with dad, country-style.

59. "I Loved Her First" by Heartland

"And I knew the first time I saw you with her it was only a matter of time. I loved her first, I held her first and a place in my heart will always be hers.

I loved her first."

60. "Stealing Cinderella" by Chuck Wicks

"I came to see her daddy for sit down man to man. It wasn't any secret I'd be asking for her hand. I guess that's why he left me waiting in the living room by myself with at least a dozen pictures of her sitting on a shelf. She was playing Cinderella. She was riding her first bike, bouncing on the bed and looking for a pillow fight. Running through the sprinkler with a big Popsicle grin, dancing with her dad, looking up at him. In her eyes I'm Prince Charming but to him I'm just some fella riding in and stealing Cinderella."

61. "My Little Girl" by Tim McGraw

"You're beautiful baby, from the outside in. Chase your dreams but always know the road that will lead you home again. Go on, take on this old world but to me you know you'll always be my little girl. Someday some boy will come and ask me for your hand but I won't say yes to him unless I know he's the half that makes you whole, he has a poet's soul and the heart of a man's man."

62. "Ready, Set, Don't Go" by Bill Ray Cyrus

"She's at the starting line of the rest of her life as ready as she's ever been. Got the hunger and the stars in her eyes, the prize is hers to win. She's waiting on my blessings before she hits that open road. Baby get ready, get set, don't go."

63. "Dance with My Daughter" by Jason Blaine

"Greatest gift in the world is a new baby girl — feels like I took a chance placing her, here in my hands. Gonna dance with my daughter, spin her around under the lights ‘cause I'm just a father making the most of this moment in time before she lets me go I'll hold her close caught in this race against time. Right now all I want is to dance with my daughter tonight."

64. "Butterfly Kisses" by Bob Carlisle

"She'll change her name today. She'll make a promise, and I'll give her away. Standing in the bride room just staring at her, she asked me what I'm thinking and I said 'I'm not sure, I just feel like I'm losing my baby girl.' Then she leaned over and gave me butterfly kisses, with her mama there. Sticking little white flowers all up in her hair. 'Walk me down the aisle daddy, it's just about time. Does my wedding gown look pretty Daddy? Daddy don't cry.' Oh with all that I've done wrong, I must have done something right to deserve her love every morning and butterfly kisses. I couldn't ask God for more, man, this is what love is. I know I've gotta let her go, but I'll always remember every hug in the morning, and butterfly kisses."

65. "Daddy" by Abby Anderson

"Yeah you're wondering how I know he's it. Well my whole life I had a dad who showed me what a real man is, 'cause Daddy he loves me just like you do. He treats me like a queen just like you, just like you do. He's my shoulder to cry on, he's my best friend Oh and Daddy, he loves me just like you."

66. "Daddy Dance with Me" by Krystal Keith

"I know what you see when you look at me as we walk down the aisle: Little pink tutu, bows and tennis shoes and the wide eyes of your child. Those are all the memories you will cherish and you'll carry no matter how much time has come and gone. Daddy dance with me. I want you to see the woman I've become. Daddy don't let go. I want you to know I'll always need your love. Today I became his wife but I'll be your baby girl for life."

67. "Daddy's Angel" by Anthony Carter

"I'm giving you away but I'm not letting go. The memories, they flood my mind of the little girl I know. Once upon a time you held my hand so tight. You'd close your eyes and say a prayer, then I'd kiss your head goodnight. As we dance I keep our love deep within my heart and thank God for giving me this angel in my arms... You're my little angel so baby don't you cry. It's time to spread your wings and fly. If there's one thing this father knows the hardest part is letting go but you will still always be ... Daddy's little angel."

68. "Handprints on the Wall" by Kenny Rogers

"The wait turned into hours before you came my way. The smile that filled a daddy's heart on the special day. The moment left me speechless. I didn't know what to say. Then you took your first breath that took mine away. Days go by so quickly. Summer turns to fall, seems like only yesterday that you began to crawl. So don't be afraid to take that step. I'll catch you when you fall. I don't mind if you leave behind a few handprints on the wall."

Get Inspired: Real Couples Share Country Wedding Songs They Chose

Want to hear what country wedding music real brides used for their big day? Here’s how these couples chose their first-dance songs. (Grab a tissue).

Amber and Brandon Cox: "The Best Day"

For this couple, it was the groom who had his heart set on a particular song. George Strait's "The Best Day" meant a lot for Brandon, who had gone through a serious illness before he meant Amber. He remembered leaving the hospital and hearing "The Best Day" on the radio. When he heard it, it helped him look ahead to brighter days, and when he got better and then eventually met Amber, those brighter days became a reality. "I had always thought it would be a great first dance song, because not every day is your best day, but sometimes the thoughts and hopes of better days can be an encouragement.

I always thought it would be a wonderful emotional dance to think about all the struggles that God brought me through to have a best day and embrace my best friend in a new way for the first time, and to be think back about those trying times and be thankful for the good times."

Tahlia and Ronald Kirk: “Lovin’ You is Fun”

For Tahlia, the choice was easy. “We danced to Easton Corbin's ‘Lovin' You Is Fun’ because it's all about a healthy drama-free relationship, which fit us perfectly. My favorite part is the chorus: ‘Love don't have to be a bunch of drama, a bunch of knock-down, drag-outs, cryin' in the rain...and we're having such a good time together, and it's only just begun. My heart's never smiled so hard. Baby, loving you is fun.’”

Megan and Spencer Roberts: “God Gave Me You”

Spencer loves songs that tell a story, and what music tells greater stories than country songs? Megan, who was already a fan of the genre, introduced Spencer to country music and he was hooked. When it was time to choose a song, it was a hard decision. They did their research, and eventually chose "God Gave Me You," by Blake Shelton. "We went back and forth on lots of songs, even from other bands we had seen live and settled on this song because it tells the story that mirrors traditional marriage vows," says Megan, who especially loved the lyrics describing God planning out a relationship to be better than the couple could have ever expected.

"My husband (who does not dance, especially in front of people) and I used a part of that precious wedding budget to take private dance lessons. Our first dance dong was Blake Shelton's "God Gave Me You," and he even twirled and dipped me. Now we have a plaque in our house that says 'God Gave Me You.' I swapped out my heels for boots, and followed up with line dances."

Joann and Robby Gillett: “I Don’t Dance”

Joann didn't always love country, but Robby changed that. "I hated country music with a passion until I met Robby. After about a year of it being on in the car and in the morning when he was getting ready for work, I realized I was starting to sing along."

"When we first heard the 'I Don't Dance' on the radio we both knew it would be our song, even though we weren't engaged yet. Then one day at work he sent me a link to the YouTube video of Lee Brice singing it at the Grand Ole Opry and I called him and we were both in tears," says Joann.

On the day of the wedding, the song was everything they hoped it would be. "It was amazing. It captured so much of what we were feeling and was super emotional. Listen to it and I dare you not to cry."

Amanda and Edgar Ortiz: “God Gave Me You” and “Then”

If you’re planning your first dance as husband and wife and just can’t choose between two favorites, you could always use both—after all, it’s your day. If you want two country weddings songs, go for it. That’s what Amanda Ortiz did at her wedding. “We had two first dance songs at our wedding because we couldn't choose which one fit us perfectly. We decided to go with two first dance songs that we felt represented both of us completely. We picked Blake Shelton's ‘God Gave Me You’ and Brad Paisley's ‘Then.’”

It was important to Ortiz to incorporate country music into her wedding because it was a big part of their story. “When we were still just friends, my husband got me into country music. Then when we started dating, he took me to my first country concert which was Brad Paisley. We bonded over the music, and later Edgar also surprised me with Blake Shelton. Looking back on our first dances, they were my favorite part of the whole night. Now, after three years of being married, we’re into all sorts of country music and living in the South.

You can say it really shaped us to the point where we ended up fitting in a small town after growing up in Los Angeles.”
