We are dancing to Shania Twain’s You’re Still the One. I’m not even a country fan, but that song is soooo perfect for us, that there was just no question!

sorry for the multiple posts, my computer is screwy….I had a few suggestions, but then I realized you were looking for first dance songs, not father-daughter songs. So, yeah. Sorry!

I choreograph first dances (as well as being a bride to be!) and I’ve had a number of country songs– “Then” by Brad Paisley was popular and really pretty. I had a daughter/father do “I loved her first” that seems more fitting for father daughter because of the lyrics. The other one I’ve had is “You and me” Kenny Chesney. Hope that helps! good luck!

I almost hate to share because I LOVE this song and it is mine 😉 But we are using “Never Alone” by Lady Antebellum and Jim Brickman.  It is a lesser known song because it is on Jim Brickman’s CD (a piano player) and not Lady Antebellum’s.  It just has this beautiful message about how when things are good or bad or wherever you go in life you will never be alone.  Makes me tear up every time!  Check it out on youtube!

I love “Then,” by Kenny Chesney.  I would be using it if I could convince my Fiance there is nothing wrong with country music.

First Dance:

  • Then — Brad Paisley
  • My Best Friend — Tim McGraw
  • Would You Go With Me — Josh Turner (This is easy to overlook because it is very up-tempo, but the words are just perfect, and it is quite catchy. It fits some country line dancing rhythms, too.)
  • Lost in this Moment — Big and Rich
  • I Cross My Heart — George Strait
  • Amazed — Lonestar
  • Love Without End, Amen — George Strait
  • I Do (Cherish You) — Mark Wills
  • It’s Your Love — Tim McGraw and Faith Hill


  • My Little Girl — Tim McGraw
  • My Wish — Rascall Flatts (also a good Mother/Son contender)
  • You Can Let Go — Crystal Shawanda (The end of this is really sad, so maybe if your DJ could edit it down to just the first two verse where she’s a little girl and then on her wedding day?)
  • Butterfly Kisses — Bob Carlisle

I’ll edit in if I think of more!
