I have been searching all night. I keep coming across older songs, which are lovely, but I want a more modern country song.
I love Then by Brad Paisley,but my friend danced to that and I want something we can call our own.
We are considering Kenny Chesney – You Saved Me.
Also, can we do the father/daughter, mother/son dance at the same time?
Any Ideas are appreciated!

My DH picked our 1st dance song, “Crazy Girl” by Eli Young Band. He loved the song and said it reminded him of me (although at first I was a little insulted, my DH thinks I’m crazy? but it’s actually a really sweet song) and it’s fun now whenever we hear it on the radio. We also liked “Here” by Rascal Flatts, just another idea.

@sara_tiara: Yes! That’s the Blake shelton song I was trying to remember but I’ve had “over” stuck in my head blocking it.

My Best Friend – Tim McGraw!!!
And I really like “Only you can love me this way” – Keith Urban

I was considering You Saved Me at First, but we ultimately decided on Andy Griggs, You WOn’t Ever be Lonely! It’s not REALLY new, but it’s not the Johnny Cash generation either.
Also, the song I picked for Father/Daughter, was actually our runner-up for first dance ( I definitely think it works both ways) It’s not super current either BUT it’s George Strait, I Cross my heart!
I Also personally like Brad Paisley All Because Two People Fell in Love, but FI didn’t like it for First Dance.

I also really love “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not” by Thompson Square…but that’s not super slow…might be a bit too fast, depending on your preference.

@jamielynn6: We combined the parent/kid dances as well. My dad and I started and after a few bars dh and his mom joined in. We didn’t use a country song but i love the song you suggested for that as well.
