Cowboy boots for your first dance!

Recently, we’ve noticed an increase in the number of couples using a country song for their first dance. Country music is a great choice for a first dance because the lyrics are often romantic and poetic, and couples can dance an entertaining mix of two-step and swing.

According to Billboard, country music’s popularity has been on a steady incline for the past 20 years. Several of the recent American Idol finalists have been country singers, and country really stood out at the 2012 and 2013 Grammy Awards. Clearly, Country music is making a comeback!

Whatever the reason, we’re glad that country music is becoming a popular option for first dances.

Here are some of our favorites:

God Gave Me You’ by Blake Shelton – Two Step and Single Swing

Wanted’ by Hunter Hayes – Two Step and Single Swing

It’s Your Love’ by Tim McGraw – Two Step and Single Swing

‘Stuck Like Glue’ by Sugarland – Foxtrot and Single Swing

A Woman Like You’ by Lee Brice – Two Step and Single Swing
