country music cliches is that every song is about “your
wife leaving you, dog ran away, sittin’ at a bar
drinking away your sorrows.” That cliche does
cover a lot of what country music is, but not everything.

to find powerful songs that fulfill the purpose of a
meaningful wedding dance. If you are a fan of country
music, you already have a few songs in mind. If you
have never listened to country music, call a couple
of local radio stations and ask them to refer a couple
of songs to you.

it did on the wedding day. Picking a song that you think
the audience will like will not make this special moment

time you heard your wedding song on the radio or TV?

emotional connection to the song.
Timing is everything

going to be spent by the time you get to your wedding
dance. When looking at song choices, look at songs that
are short. The wedding crowd will be overcome with emotion
as you begin your dance, but they might start to feel
awkward if the song goes on too long.
