Top Texas Country Wedding Songs - Austin's Best DJs & Photo Booths Top 25 TX Country Wedding Songs

What is Texas Country?

If you don’t know what Texas Country is, it’s basically a sub-genre of Country music, with artists mainly from the Texas area. Texas Country has plenty of great songs that are perfect for your first dance, or even to be played as a non-traditional wedding song (processional or recessional song).

It was tough to make this list since there are lots of awesome Texas Country wedding songs that we play. We made a list of the Top 25 most-played Texas Country songs that we play at a wedding. We’ve also included YouTube links, so you can listen to them. We know there are many more great songs, but here’s what our wedding clients have often requested. 🙂

Below, is the list of the most popular Texas Country songs for weddings that we play at weddings and events, every weekend, all year long! These songs are perfect for the reception, or some you can even choose to walk down the aisle to.

By the way, you don’t have to have a Rustic or country wedding theme, to play these songs. If you are not familiar with the country song, feel free to simply click the link, to hear the song and watch the video.

Best Country Wedding Songs & Artists (From Texas & Beyond)

The above songs are the top TX Country wedding songs. However, there are many other great country wedding songs and artists that you can add to your wedding playlist. We get tons of requests for a variety of music, but for Country (not just Texas Country), the best country weddings songs (or at least the most requested) are songs from:

  • Rascall Flats
  • Randy Travis
  • Carrie Underwood
  • George Strait (from TX and definitely one of the best)
  • Kacey Musgraves
  • Shania Twain
  • Garth Brooks
  • Keith Urban
  • Blake Shelton
  • Kenny Chesney
  • Faith Hill
  • and even Taylor Swift! 🙂

So if you add some of the songs from these artists, you’ll likely get your guests dancing! We’re not saying that the best country wedding songs come from the above artists, only, but they are certainly the most requested artists!

Picking Just One Artist or One Song

If we had to pick just one artist, for some strange reason, we’d pick the one and only George Strait! Remember, if you’re struggling to choose one song for your first dance, you don’t have to choose just one! Talk to your DJ about creating a mix of your favorite songs (usually 2-3).

Your DJ can make your wedding first dance mix about as long as one song would be (around 3 minutes). So there is no need to have to just pick one song, anymore! Wedding couples love this idea!
