When it comes to the daddy daughter dance, there are thousands of songs to choose from. If you narrow it down a bit, to just country father daughter songs, it’s a little easier, but not much. haha
There are so many great songs to choose from. So many, in fact, it took us much longer than usual just to narrow down the list to the top 25! By the way, we included links to all of the songs (lyric videos), so you can read the lyrics to each song if you’d like to. So let’s get to the lists, now.
You Are My Sunshine – by Johnny Cash. This is a great, classic Country tune that is highly underrated. Check it out and see if you like it. We love it!
Brown Eyed Girl – by Van Morrison. So this song isn’t often thought of as Country, but we had to include it, since it’s a very popular father daughter dance song, and it’s one of the most-requested!
Daddy’s Hands – by Holly Dunn
Daddy Dance With Me – by Krystal Keith
“You’ve Got a Friend in Me,” by Lyle Lovett and Randy Newman. Who doesn’t have great memories with this Toy Story song? 🙂
“Daughter” by Loudon Wainwright. This song is not quite traditional country, but it sounds similar to country and is a great choice!
“Walk With You” by Edwin McCain.
Stealing Cinderella – by Chuck Wicks
He Didn’t Have to Be – by Brad Paisley. This song is a beautiful song written about a Stepdad and his role in his stepdaughter’s life. If you’re looking for a song about stepdads, this is the perfect song.
“You’re Gonna Miss This,” by Trace Adkins. This song captures how growing up with your parents goes by very quickly.
There Goes My Life – by Kenny Chesney
I Hope You Dance – by LeAnn Womack. This song is perfect for the father daughter dance, and is often used for the mother son dance song, too. If you’re not into having the spotlight, this song can be played for both the daddy daughter and mother son dance, together!

“Just Fishing” by Trace Adkins is a great song that brides and dads, love!
Daddy’s Little Girl – by The Shires. This is a great song, that isn’t used as much as it should be. Play this one and be different!
