What Are the Best Country Wedding Songs?

Deputy Editor at Hitched, Rima Barakeh, is a huge country music advocate, so who better to ask about country wedding songs than her? Sharing her suggestions, she says, "Country music is one of the most wedding-appropriate genres out there, with soul, depth and incredible vocals running through almost every song. 

"For slow, moving first dances or wedding ceremony music, artists like Keith Urban and Chris Stapleton give couples plenty to choose from. Their music is soulful and really moving, making it perfect for those super romantic moments. For something more modern, but still beautifully sentimental, Dan and Shay and Florida Georgia Line are a great choice.

"When it comes to wedding reception music, no one does it better than country music artists. Go classic with Dolly Parton and Bruce Springsteen, or modern with Taylor Swift and Luke Combs."

Rima's Best Country Wedding Song Recommendations:

Modern First Dance: Die a Happy Man - Thomas Rhett

Classic First Dance: You're Still the One - Shania Twain

Modern Walking Down the Aisle: H.O.L.Y - Florida Georgia Line
