Do you have a favorite Country two-step song, not on our list?  Please share your song below so that we can add it!  You can mention your favorite on our list too!

The Two-Step is a classic dance that can be paired with a variety of music. It’s a great way to kick off your wedding reception. If you’re having trouble finding the right music, here are just a few ideas for two-step wedding songs.

When considering the Two-Step, you can dance to the nightclub two-step which typically ranges from 64-88 BPM. However, the country-western two-step ranges from 180-210 BPM. The country-western two-step is more for party time and the nightclub two-step is perfect for a first dance song.

Two-Step Wedding Songs

Two-Step in Different Genres

Ed Sheeran – Shape of You

Released in 2017 on the album Divide
96 BPM

Dancing Lyrics:

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!

Kenny Chesney feat. P!nk – Setting The World On Fire

Released in 2016 on the album Cosmic Hallelujah
94 BPM

Dancing Lyrics:

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.

Jon Pardi – Head Over Boots

Released in 2016 on the album California Sunrise
108 BPM

Dancing Lyrics:

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?

Thomas Rhett – Die A Happy Man

Released in 2016 on the album Tangled Up
172 BPM for Remix

Dancing Lyrics:

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.

Jason Aldean – Tonight Looks Good On You

Released in 2015 on the albumOld Boots, New Dirt
170 BPM

Dancing Lyrics:

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.

Laura Bell Bundy feat. Colt Ford – Two Step

Released in 2013 on the album Two Step
101 BPM

Dancing Lyrics:

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!

Nicki Minaj – Your Love

Released in 2010 on the album Pink Friday
126 BPM

Dancing Lyrics:

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.

Cupid – Cupid Shuffle

Released in 2007 on the album Cupid Shuffle
72 BPM

Dancing Lyrics:

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!

Sixpence None The Richer – Kiss Me

Released in 1997 on the album Sixpence None the Richer
100 BPM

Dancing Lyrics:

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.

Dave Matthews Band – Two Step

119 BPM

Dancing Lyrics:

Celebrate we will
Because life is short but sweet for certain
(Hey)
We’re climbing two by two

Laying round in bed on a Saturday morning
Two daughters and a wife
