Country music is all about storytelling. When it comes to love songs in particular, the genre always seems to get it right.
For example, Johnny Cash’s 1966 tune “Happiness Is You” is like a heartfelt love letter that inspires you with every word.
“No more chasing moonbeams or catching falling stars. I know now my pot of gold is anywhere you are. My heart won’t miss you. My heart goes with you. Loneliness is emptiness but happiness is you,” Cash sings. How could someone not fall for these words?
And there’s no denying the timeless appeal of Shania Twain’s 1997 hit “From This Moment On.”
Country songs like these are expressive and sincere, making them perfect options for a couple’s wedding song — even if they aren’t from the South.
Below are 16 songs soon-to-be-married couples can choose from to make that first dance a little more special.
