My and my Fiance have yet to pick a first dance son for our June wedding. The day of our wedding we will have a man playing acoustic guitar & singing “our song”. I was really wanting a song that hasn’t been used a million times over. Anything remotely close to the style of Chri Stapleton would be amazing, but am open to any suggestion.

What’s a meaningful song to the two of you? Do you have a favourite musician you listen to together? Any song that reminds you of each other?

wlcrump09 : we’re having Ordinary World by Green Day. It has a bit of a country twang and would be perfect for one man and his acoustic guitar. We’re not really into country but we do like Green Day and it’s just such a lovely song. Romantic but not slushy. I haven’t come across anyone else having it as a first dance song, in real life or online!

Do you ever listen to the coffee house station on XM radio? This might give you some inspiration as it is all acoustic and artists often cover each others songs in new and interesting ways. You might be able to pick the song that you love and have the acoustic guitarist sing it “in the style of” Chris Stapleton. That way you get lyrics that are meaningful to you but still get the sound you want.

We haven’t decided but my favorite so far is Sarah Bareilles I Choose You

We danced to When I’m With You by Ben Rector. We really loved the lyrics and it was one of my favorite memories from the wedding.

Pandora is another great place to go to find songs that sound like a given artist (or song), since Pandora creates a station based on the specific musical traits of an artist’s style.
You can go to https://www.pandora.com/station/play/3560716958407160849 for the Chris Stapleton station and listen for songs you like.
Good luck! 🙂
