Just me and you doin’ the new step
Getting the boots wet
Handsome in denim and diamonds and rockin’ it steady and ready to lose your blues
It’s a crazy, wacky, upside down world
Nothing makes sens?
Be a live it up girl
Do what you love
But lov? who you are
Take it to the limit
You’re a shining star
Turn on the good times, turn off the TV
Yeah, the only BS I need is beers and sunshine
The way you look tonight
It’s got me searching your eyes and looking for words that I can’t find
So tell me that I’m yours and I’ll tell you that you’re mine
‘Cause now that I’ve kissed your lips goodnight
I don’t wanna know what it’s like
To be without your so good kind of love
That look on your face, the way you shine
It’s a once in a lifetime find
I’ll keep a light on in my soul
Keep a bluebird in my heart
All To Myself – Dan + Shay
2018, Dan + Shay
I’m jealous of the song that you’ve been singing
And the way it’s rolling off your lips
I believe this world ain’t half as bad as it looks
I believe most people are good
From your blue jeans to your shoes
Girl, that night was just like you
So, bring it on in for that angel kiss
Put that feel good on my lips,
‘Cause you’re the one I want, you’re the one I need
Your eyes could make the moon jealous
And if you wanna know if I wanna be your girl tonight
Let’s have a house party, we don’t need nobody
Turn your TV off, break that boom-box out
Rock me momma like a wagon wheel
Rock me momma any way you feel
Downtown – Lady A
Did you forget about how we went around
I don’t know why you don’t take me downtown anymore
So baby, you a song
You make me wanna roll my windows down and cruise
I grabbed a beer and an old guitar
Then we sat around till the break of dawn
Howlin’ and singin’ our favorite song
No one gets me like you when you kiss me
Girl, you rock me harder than some downtown band
Honey Bee – Blake Shelton
2011, Red River Blue
I’ll be your shade tree
You’ll be my honeysuckle
I’ll be your honey bee
Stuck like glue
You and me baby
We’re stuck like glue
On second thought
Just the way you are
Is already driving me crazy
So baby, why don’t we just dance
I asked if she believed in fate
And she said, ‘Yes’
Livin’ On Love – Alan Jackson
1994, Who I Am
Love can walk through fire without blinking
It doesn’t take much, when you get enough
Living on love
Neon Moon – Brooks & Dunn
1991, Brand New Man
To watch your broken dreams dance in and out of the beams
Of a neon moon
Forever And Ever, Amen – Randy Travis
1987, Always & Forever
I’ll be happy to tell you again
I’m gonna love you forever and ever
Forever and ever, amen

Girl you know I want your love
Your love was handmade for somebody like me
Come on now, follow my lead
Bringing to mind sunny beaches and white curtains fluttering in the breeze, Shape of You is perfect for a marimba-inspired two-step. It’s almost Jamaican with its steady yet lazy beat, so you can infuse your dance with all kinds of sultry moves and dips. Just make sure to keep it tame while grandma is watching!
And you wrote “I love you” in lipstick on the mirror
We were laughin’ until we were breathless
Never felt anything so reckless
We were all lit up and restless
Tinged with a particular kind of youthful nostalgia, Setting the World on Fire is a perfect song for long-term couples who have shared a lot of memories before coming together in front of the altar. It’s a romantic duet that will leave you laughing, dancing, reminiscing, and just plain enjoying the company of your spouse. Perfect for a slow two-step romantic dance.
You’re the one I want, you’re the one I need
Baby, if I was a king, you would be my queen
Said by critics to have a “swinging feel,” Head Over Boots was written by Jon Pardi as he watched young couples strutting their stuff in a Texas dance hall. The result is a peppy, upbeat song that can be paired with everything from the two-step to the square dance. Who says that country music can’t be flexible?
And I know that I can’t ever tell you enough
That all I need in this life is your crazy love
This achingly sweet song is perfect for the first dance between you and your spouse. Put your hand on his shoulder; tuck your head against his chest; let him lead you around the dance floor in a gentle two-step as Thomas Rhett sings about eternal love and devotion. Get the remix version kicked up to 172 BPM.
Somethin’ ’bout the way you’re smiling
Makin’ them stars fall right on cue
I just gotta tell you baby
Tonight looks good on you
A relatively slow song, Tonight Looks Good On You is the perfect blend of dreamy and down-home. You’ll be able to sway in your partner’s arms without worrying about steps and beats, but you’ll also be able to throw in some spins if you’re a more advanced dancer.
I’m gonna rock my cowboy hat and pink stilettos
We’re gonna stomp and kick until they make us all go home
What better way to dance the two-step than with an actual song called Two-Step? Though not a typical wedding song, it’s a rallying cry for kicking off your shoes, shucking up your dress, and taking over the dance floor with your bridesmaids. Girl power!
Find me in your heart
I’m in need of your love
Your love, your love, your love, your love
Nicki Minaj might not be the first person that you think of when you’re looking for wedding songs, but Your Love offers such a toe-tapping chorus that it’s easy to turn this hip-hop track into a two-step song. Just time your movements with her repetition and you’re halfway to creating your own choreography.
Brand new dance, it’s called the Cupid shuffle
It don’t matter if you’re young or you’re old
We gonna show you how it go
Cupid Shuffle is a lot like Cha Cha Slide or even Crank That (Soulja Boy) in that it will direct you when to move left, when to move right and when to kick. The result is a song that will get everyone on their feet and shaking their groove thang regardless of dancing ability!
Oh, kiss me beneath the milky twilight
Lead me out on the moonlit floor
Lift your open hand
You remember this song, right? It was a big hit back in the ’90s, and it’s still a popular wedding song to this day. Cute, romantic, and just as charming as the fireflies that dance throughout the chorus, Kiss Me will let you two-step your way right into your spouse’s heart.
