Top 5 Country First Dance Songs

Stepping into the world of wedding planning comes with a symphony of decisions, and picking the perfect song for your first dance is undoubtedly one of the most special. If you and your partner share a love for the heartfelt lyrics and southern charm of country music, this list is for you. We are laying out the five best country songs to make your first dance as a married couple one you’ll cherish forever.

A country classic, “You’re Still the One” by Shania Twain creates the perfect ambience of love and nostalgia for your first dance as newlyweds. Dancing to the lyrics “you’re the one I want for life” and “I’m so glad we made it” creates a romantic and special moment for a newly-wed bride and groom and sets a beautiful tone for a strong and enduring love.

Just after you’ve stood in front of your family and friends and promised to love each other forever, what better way to celebrate than to slow dance to the lyrics “I’m gonna love you forever, forever and ever amen.” This Randy Travis country classic is a heartfelt display of a timeless love, with a nostalgic sound to start out a lifetime of happiness.

Dan + Shay provide a fresh country sound, with all the nostalgia of an old country song. “You” feels like the joy of falling in love, singing “I got you for the rest of my days, in the sun on Sunday morning or the pouring rain.” It is a beautiful promise to love one another through the good and bad days, and a wonderful display of your love as you begin your marriage.

Chris Stapleton’s voice makes any and every song feel like a love song for the ages, but coupled with these beautiful lyrics, this song is enough to bring anyone to tears. “Joy of My Life” captures a pure and tender love, and has a great tempo for a sweet yet joyous first dance.

If you prefer to get the party started, “Why Don’t We Just Dance” by Josh Turner is the perfect first dance song for you. It's fun, upbeat, and lively, but still carries themes of the joy of falling in love. If you’re known as the fun couple amongst friends, this is the perfect country song for you.

Whether you choose a timeless classic or explore the soulful tunes of new country favorites, your first dance is a cherished expression of love that will linger in your hearts for a lifetime.
