Country Wedding Songs For Your 2020 Playlist


Finding the right music for a wedding is one of the overlooked joys of planning the big day. While the logistics of planning the budget, picking out table centerpieces and deciding on the dress offer their own satisfaction, they are still tougher to deal with. Deciding on the music is much more fun and allows you to share some personal flair through dance and entertainment.



Some of the most popular music for weddings has been country music. While it is not everyone’s cup of tea, it is growing in popularity at wedding events because country songs range in fun, upbeat party music to slow, romantic tunes.

If you already know you want country music for your wedding playlist, or need some inspiration for new songs to add before your big day, check out these options:

Upbeat Country Songs

While you are going to want some slow dance songs, you are going to want energetic music as well. Some of the songs that you can choose for the wedding reception for your friends and family to get up and party to include; Darius Rucker – Wagon Wheel, Lil Nas X ft. Billy Ray Cyrus – Old Town Road, Luke Bryan – Country Girl, Luke Bryan – Knockin’ Boots, Sam Hunt – House Party, Shania Twain – Man I Feel Like a Woman, Steve Earle – Copperhead Road, Zac Brown Band – Chicken Fried.

This is just a small list of some of the songs you can include in your wedding playlist, but they are sure to get people on their feet when it comes to the celebration of the reception after the ceremony and first dance is over. Alternatively, hiring a live band for your special day is a guaranteed way to have an unforgettably entertaining wedding. Live bands are great because you can get a good mix of original country songs and cover songs.

Romantic Country Songs



Fun, upbeat songs are good for the crowd but you also want to include a healthy mix of romantic, slow dance songs for all the lovebirds (including the bride and groom), in the crowd. The point of a wedding is to celebrate love, so the music selection in the playlist should reflect this. Here is a list of some of the song options you have for slower or romantic music: Keith Urban – You’re My Better Half, Faith Hill – There You’ll Be, Hunter Hayes – Wanted, Jason Aldean – You Make It Easy, Kasey Musgraves – Butterflies, Tim McGraw & Faith Hill – The Rest of Our Life.

Again, a short enough list but gives you some options and which artists to look for. These songs are good because they are not just restricted to the bride and groom. Anyone can enjoy these songs and they are wonderful additions to any wedding playlist. They are easy songs to play in a cover band if you choose to go that route as well. Country music has a massive catalogue of songs for weddings that have been used for years. Some of these are a good mix of new and old.

Crowd Favorites

This list of songs is just a collection of various songs that are considered crowd favorites for weddings. They range in type of country style and upbeat or slow, but they are always among the songs included on a bands song sheet or playlist: Frankie Ballard – Sunshine & Whiskey, Sam Hunt – Body Like a Back Road, John Denver – Country Roads Take Me Home, Rascal Flatts – Life is a Highway, Florida Georgia Line – Cruise, Toby Keith – Red Solo Cup, Alan Jackson – Good Time, Lynyrd Skynyrd – Sweet Home Alabama, Faith Hill – This Kiss, Thomas Rhett – Die a Happy Man, Zac Brown Band – Loving You Is Easy.

Many of these country songs are on the poppy side too, which is good for those guests that are not the biggest fans of the genre. There is a good mix of styles so that everyone can enjoy the music for a little dancing fun.

Picking the perfect wedding music playlist is one of the most enjoyable parts of the wedding planning process because it usually requires the least amount of stress. In fact, it is a good way to create the perfect vibe you want for your reception. If you want it to be fun and dancey, or a slow, romantic event, there is always enough music out there to facilitate your needs. Country music is a great choice for music because it offers a range of upbeat poppy sounds, to slow ballads. You can even consider going all out and hiring a live band to really liven up your wedding event.
