A Little Something about a Few of the Songs Featured Above:

Keeper of  The Stars, by Tracy Byrd

Honestly, you’ll cry listening to this…it’s so beautiful. If the two of you are madly-deeply in love, these are your words. Your family members will probably ball their eyes out while you dance to this song! The song ends with this profound message; It was no accident me finding you; someone had a hand in it, long before we ever knew. This song is lovely for a couple who have known each other since they were very young. Honestly, you’ll cry listening to this…it’s so beautiful.

The song ends with this profound message; It was no accident me finding you; someone had a hand in it, long before we ever knew.

This song is lovely for a couple who have known each other since they were very young.

This song was written by Dickey Lee, Danny May, and Karen Staley. You’ll find this song on Tracy’s album ‘No Ordinary Man.’ It reached number 2 on the Billboard Hot Country Single Charts. The Country Music Association named it Country Song of the Year the following year.

When I Said I Do, by Clint Black (Featuring Lisa Hartman Black)

If you’re looking for lyrics that speak for both of you simultaneously, this is the perfect wedding song. The song is sung by both Clint Black and Lisa Hartman (who are, in fact, man and wife). The lyrics sung mostly by Clint, featuring Lisa, make it ideal if you’d rather a song with both a male and female voice. The song includes the promise ‘When I said I do; I meant that I will, til’ the end of all time, be faithful and true, devoted to you.’ This song works if you’ve been through a lot together before marriage or renewing your vows.

Clint Black wrote this song, and it’s sung by himself featuring his wife, Lisa Hartman Black. It was the first single released from his album D’lectrified in 1999. This song reached number 1 on the Hot Billboard Singles Country Chart! Being a perfect wedding song, it crossed over and reached number 31 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

She’s Everything, by Brad Paisley

If you’re looking for a song that you want to dedicate just to her, then this song says it all. Its’ kind and loving lyrics say exactly what any woman would like to know that her man feels about her.

Anyone watching you dance with your new wife to this song will know how much you love her! It will probably bring tears to a few people as well!

The song was co-written by Brad Paisley with Wil Nance and released in 2006 on his album Time Well Wasted. It was also Brad’s 7th number one single. It was certified Platinum along with Brad’s hit songs ‘Then’ and ‘Whiskey Lullaby.’

It’s Your Love, by Faith Hill & Tim McGraw

Although this song is sung mainly by Tim McGraw, Faith Hill sings in the background, so you can also choose this one as a wedding song that speaks for both of you. The lyrics talk about how love has carried them through…it’s a beautiful thing, don’t think I can keep it all in, I just gotta let you know what it is that won’t let me go, it’s your love… In the song, he says that he’s a better man being with her, with Faith’s beautiful voice singing in the background, echoing and confirming her feelings in return.

Written by Stephany Smith, the song was released in May 1997 on Tim Mcgraw’s album ‘Everywhere.’ The song reached number one and stayed atop the charts for six weeks. Faith Hill was expecting their first child ‘Gracie’ at the time – you can see how beautiful she looks in their video.

Then, Brad Paisley

This song ranks as a favorite song for a wedding or anniversary. The song talks about how the love for their significant other has grown since ‘back then.’ Sung by Brad, it has a male perspective; however, the lyrics can easily be spoken by a woman to a man. This is it if you’re looking for an emotional, heart-wrenching song about love!

Love of My Life, by Sammy Kershaw

Keith Stegall and Dan Hill wrote this incredible song. It was the lead single on his album Labour of Love in October 1997. You can also hear it performed as a duet with Canadian Country Music Artist Terri Clark. There should be no surprise that this song reached number 2 in the USA and #3 in Canada. If you’d rather have a male and female voice singing a song for your dance, then the duet version is the way to go – You can listen to both versions below.

The Words from ‘You Had Me from Hello’ – The Perfect Love at First Sight Song

I’m not sure how I missed this song over the years, but it completely sailed by without my noticing it until searching for the perfect country music wedding songs. The lyrics and the music caused me to listen to this song at least ten times.

You’ll find ‘You Had Me from Hello’ on Kenny Chesney’s album ‘Everywhere We Go.’ The song was written by Skip Ewing and Kenny Chesney and released as the second single in 1999. It reached number 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Single Charts.

    ummmm, what a wonderful list! Most of us have one song that we consider “our song”, but the couple will need a few songs for their wedding. This is a fabulous way to find complimentary, beautiful and loving songs. For those of us who are already married, I still love discovering love songs to send to my forever sweetheart.

  2. Cynthia, thanks for the visit! every song here my hubby gets to listen to the lyrics as I work, and he is discovering a whole whack of songs that he can dedicate to me now – lol! not really! I tell him ‘here…this one is from you to me’ – he laughs.

  3. What a terrific list of songs. Your lists and your reviews of love songs will be very helpful for someone looking for just that special song for their wedding dance. The song that became OUR song was played on the night my hubby & I got pinned and every time it came on, we got up and danced. This was 2 years before we married. And it’s still the favorite all these years later.

  4. What a great resource for anyone planning a wedding.

  5. That’s really sweet, and a treasure to keep forever – the music really does take us back

  6. Bet this list is very helpful to those seeking a great romantic country song!

  7. We are about to celebrate our 51st wedding anniversary, so I don’t anticipate having another wedding. I will certainly recommend this page to anyone I know who is planning a wedding. I wish such a music resource had been available when I was choosing wedding music. But we didn’t even have the internet or or personal computers back in those days.

  8. Thank you Barb! I sure remember the world before internet; a time stamp; BI and AI 🙂
