100 Best Country First Dance Wedding Songs That Bring ALL the feels 🤠 ❤️

Country music is the best! And there is nothing better than country music for a first dance song.

Sure, the country music genre is commonly coined as the heartbreak, drinking beer, and tractors, type music. BUT, you can’t tell me that country hasn’t produced some of the best love ballads accompanied by an acoustic guitar!

More often than not, couples choose country first wedding dance songs that tell a story that matches the relationship. And there are seriously heaps of country music songs that tell are great story which is why they are THE BEST!

There are no ‘rules’ you should feel obligated to follow when it comes to your magical day, and especially your first dance. You can opt for a slow dance where you just gaze into your lovers eyes and feel like the only 2 people in the whole venue.

You might like to choreograph your first day or not, its totally up to you.

I was recently in a wedding party, and the bride and groom chose their first dance based off “their” first song. Ugh, get’s me weak in the knees! It’s that very first country song you hear when you are in a new relationship. Once you actually start listening to the lyrics, all you can think about is them. Next thing you know (yes, I’m thinking Jordan Davis here), it’s playing constantly on the radio. You catch yourself singing and humming the tune throughout your day. Every single time, you think of them….THIS is your country first dance song.


Tips for Choosing the Best Country First dance Songs

Your first dance is often the first moment that you are able to actually shut-out the noises around you and focus solely on the moment and realization of being newlyweds. However, it will always be a song that has an extremely significant meaning. 

You want to keep your first dance song under four minutes but over two minutes. You don’t want to bore your guests as they watch you waddle back and forth around in a circle for 5 minutes. 

Listen and understand the lyrics of the country song. They should truly reflect your relationships and the love you want to express during your first dance. 

What If You Don’t Have “A Song“?

Do you and your partner not have a designated “song”? No need to fret, my spouse and I were in the same boat. Our musical preferences differ and our memory recall is subpar, rendering all the typical advice useless. However, this is inconsequential. Who cares?!

Your first dance can still be an unforgettable moment filled with romance, humor, or whatever you desire. Select a song together that speaks to you.

Here are some great Country First Dance Songs that bring all the feels.

He made a perfect angel
And he made you just for me

Who knows where I’d be without you?
No, I just couldn’t be without you
I’ll just say “Amen”
I can count ’em on one hand
But honey, look there on your finger
I’d say I’m a lucky man
God made two lovers out of strangers
A little house on a little land
A little creek, a little Jeep
Same old moon everybody sees
It sure ain’t hard to count your blessings

The same restaurant

Barefoot in the kitchen

What Your First Dance Song Shouldn’t Be?

Make You Feel My Love by Adele
This song describes one person being in love with someone who is unsure of how they feel about it.

You’re Beautiful by James Blunt
Yes, as a bride, you want to be sang to and told that you are beautiful, but not to this song. James Blunt made this song about someone who realizes they will never be with the person they truly love, leading the person to take their life. Ew, not a good start.

Stay With Me by Sam Smith
Such a heart felt song too. But, until you realize that Sam is referring to someone falling for a one night stand.

Marry Me by Thomas Rhett
Wouldn’t you think that a song with the title “Marry Me” would have a country love story to it? This is all about a woman who wants to get married but not to the person who loves her most.
