When selecting a good modern country wedding song, the two most important things to consider are 1) the lyrics and 2) the tempo. Slow country songs are great for processional and recessional, first dance, and slow dances during dance sets. Midtempo songs are great background songs during cocktail hour and dinner. Fast songs are great party songs to get people excited about the grand entrance.

A good country song to play as you walk out after the “I Do’s”, also known as the recessional, includes the songs “Made for You” by Jake Owen, “Yours (Wedding Edition)” by Russell Dickerson, and the fun song “Stuck Like Glue” by Sugarland.

How is Always On My Mind appropriate for a wedding? It’s about regretting a failed relationship. Shouldn’t that go in the DO NOT PLAY list?

Thank you Jessica. However, we want to stick to 125 as we want to only list the best. Too many songs causes eyes to be glazed over. This way we can update the list annually with fresh songs as well.
