Father-Daughter Country Songs That Make Good Wedding Songs

What makes country music so great? In part, it’s the connection that country fans to feel the lyrics, and in the case of singing about daughters, well you can’t ask for a better connection.

If you don’t know me, I’m Jeff Kurkjian from The Andie Summers Show on 92.5 XTU. My wife, Emily, and I found out that we were expecting our very first baby who is now due on August 4th, 2023.

Then, of course, we found out we were having a BABY GIRL! In fact, we used the help of a local middle school to do the gender reveal to the rest of The Andie Summers Show, you can see that video if you scroll all the way down to Brett Young’s appearance on the list.

What Other Country Artists Sang About Daughters?

I already teased that you will see Brett Young here, and also, you will see Tim McGraw as well (maybe more than once). But also, making an appearance is the legendary Kenny Chesney!

Yep, you might have already guessed what song he’s performing that will make the father-daughter country songs list. But do you know what song Darius Rucker has one the list? Well, you can scroll down to find out.ENJOY!

  • "I Hope You Dance" by Lee Ann Womack

    Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance, and when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.”

    I think most people don’t realize that his a perfect father-daughter song. Sure, it’s sung by the amazing Lee Ann Womackbut it’s all about a daughter!

    And he cried, “There goes my life there goes my future, my everything, I love you, baby, goodbye.”

    Oh this one just gets me EVERY SINGLE TIME! When he sings that final line, I am toast. Done.

  • "My Little Girl" by Tim McGraw

    Go on, take on this whole world but to me, you know you’ll always be my little girl.”

    Another appearance by Tim on this list, but are we surprised? He actually has three daughters so that totally makes sense that he would feel so personally connected.
