Parent Dance Country Songs

They are there from the beginning; they have seen us at our worst and they have seen us at our best. They have held us when we were down and been there still when we were up and felt we didn’t need them anymore. This is the day for the couple, but in more ways than one, it is the day for the parents too. That mix of feelings of losing someone but gaining an extra person at the same time; those feelings of nostalgia and caring and deep seated love. All of these feelings come to the fore in the parent dances. We have here the right music that captures it all and transforms all of the feelings of fear or uncertainty into joy.

A wedding, country-themed or not, is not complete without a parent dance moment. It’s a really big moment for the bride and groom, but it’s a huge milestone in the lives of parents too, dreams coming true and joy all around. Some of these songs could coax out a tear or two, but what’s a wedding without some emotion, what is love without a few tears? We have here mother son dance songs and father daughter dance ideas which would make any parent proud and warm the hearts of the lucky couple in a dance. Fathers twirl their daughters, and mothers step in tune with their sons; this part is a beauty to behold and you’re double lucky if you’re doing it to this country music right here.

How To Choose?

In choosing songs for this stage in the wedding it is important to relate it to the relationship between the parent and the child. There is a story, a history, a lifetime and a lot of emotions in this dance; it should not be toyed with, and neither should the playlist. These songs should tell the stories, they should speak the thoughts and convey the feelings of a parent to a child and a child to a parent on such a day as this.

You can go country slow or country rock, you know your parent and the stories that you share. We’ve given a list to choose from; either of these should be apt for catching this all too important moment in the awesome wedding that you are sure to have. With voices of amazing artists like Lee Ann Womack, Kenny Rogers, and Willie Nelson; you can’t look too far before you find what you’re looking for.
