We love weddings at Great American Country, especially rustic, country-themed soirées. We also love music, so if you and your honey are planning your special day, here are a few of our choices for Top Wedding Songs to accompany the ceremony and reception.

Play up the fairy tale element by playing Taylor Swift’s “Love Story” as guests arrive for the church or other ceremony. Looking for something more sentimental? Kip Moore’s “Hey Pretty Girl” will tug on the heartstrings of your family and friends, or keep things lively with Trisha Yearwood’s “She’s In Love With The Boy.”
