Only You Can Love Me This Way
Released in 2009 on the album Defying Gravity

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

And there’s no one that comes close to you Could ever take your place ‘Cause only you can love me this way

With the strumming of an acoustic guitar and the gentle twang of Keith Urban’s country accent, Only You Can Love Me This Way is a down-home country classic.

It’s one of his more popular wedding songs, and once all of the couples at your reception are slow-dancing together, you’ll realize why.

Kiss a Girl
Released in 2009 on the album Defying Gravity

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

‘Cause maybe tonight could turn into the rest of our lives Are you ready? Are you ready to cross that line Put your lips on mine?

Plant a big one on your partner with the encouragement of Kiss a Girl. It’s one of Keith Urban’s hybrid tracks that combines both country and pop.

So, you’ll feel the beat move through your entire body and culminate in a grand, romantic lip-lock with the love of your life.

Sweet Thing
Released in 2009 on the album Defying Gravity

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

Standin’ here feeling like a love struck Romeo All I wanna do is hold you close and steal a little more time Is that such a crime?

As sugary as its name implies, Sweet Thing is the musical equivalent of your heart beating faster when your partner’s hand slips into yours.

It’s fun and invigorating, almost youthful in its joy, so it’s a great track for celebrating the glory of your love.

Once in a Lifetime
Released in 2006 on the album Love, Pain & the Whole Crazy Thing

After all, can you really consider yourselves married if you haven’t embarrassed each other with your dance moves?

Making Memories of Us
Released in 2004 on the album Be Here

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

I wanna stand out in a crowd for you A man among men I wanna make your world better than it’s ever been

Making Memories of Us is an irresistible wedding song. Though it never actually mentions rings or vows, it’s clear from verses about “making promises” and “honoring your mother” that it’s sung by a man who is seriously committed to the woman he loves. It doesn’t get more suited for matrimony than that.

Better Life
Released in 2004 on the album Be Here

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

Someday baby, you and I are gonna be the ones Good luck’s gonna shine Someday baby, you and I are gonna be the ones So hold on We’re headed for a better life

Grab your partner’s hand and dash out to your “just married” vehicle with Better Life. It’s a positive, encouraging, and hopeful song about the joys of tomorrow, so it’s just the soundtrack to see you off as you leave everything behind and embark on the first days of your new life.

These are just a few of the best Keith Urban songs for weddings. From soulful ballads to cheerful country tracks, he’ll have all moods and genres covered for your big day.

Days Go By
Released in 2004 on the album Be Here

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

These days go by So take ’em by the hand They’re yours and mine

While Days Go By might not be the first song that comes to mind when you’re thinking about weddings, it’ll bring lively, cheerful energy to your reception.

It’s the kind of song that you blare with the windows rolled down and the wind teasing your hair, and it’ll bring the same feeling to a bridesmaids’ dance or group choreography.

You’re My Better Half
Released in 2004 on the album Be Here

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

It’s the sweet love that you give to me That makes me believe that we can make it through anything

This happy, high-energy song will make everyone throw back their drinks and hit the dance floor.

It combines a catchy chorus with the kind of wild guitar riffs that inspire people to groove all the way down to their knees, so tell grandma to hold onto her garters!

Somebody Like You
Released in 2002 on the album Somebody Like You

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

There’s a new wind blowin’ like I’ve never known I’m breathin’ deeper than I’ve ever done And it sure feels good, to finally feel the way I do

You’ve probably heard this rosy, toe-tapping song in a dozen movies and line dances, but it’s popular for a reason!

It sends a hopeful message of love and celebration while encouraging people to get on their feet and shake their spurs, so it’ll make a great dance track for your wedding reception.

Your Everything
Released in 1999 on the album Keith Urban

I wanna be the wind that fills your sails And be the hand that lifts your veil And be the moon that moves your tide
