article imageOp-Ed: Top 5 wedding songs by male country artists

By Markos Papadatos     Jul 15, 2014 in Music
Are you getting married anytime soon? If yes, here are five wedding songs by male country artists that will be perfect for your wedding ceremony.
These songs are not in any particular order. They are all elegant in their own right, and perfect for the big occasion.
Blake Shelton's "God Gave Me You": Blake Shelton's "God Gave Me You" deals with how God has given the male narrator his female lover to help him during their trials and tribulations that they went through in life, and how their love helps guide him in the right path. It's a very clever song that even worked for Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert and their wedding ceremony.
"God gave me you for the ups and downs, God gave me you for the days of doubt, For when I think I've lost my way, There are no words here left to say, it’s true," Shelton sings.
Chuck Wicks' "Stealing Cinderella": Chuck Wicks' signature song and gorgeous love ballad "Stealing Cinderella" would be the quintessential song for the first dance between the bride and the groom. The comparisons of Cinderella throughout the song work convincingly for the male narrator in asking the girl's father for permission to marry his daughter. Any female country fan would love to have this song at their wedding ceremony.
"She was playing Cinderella, She was riding her first bike, Bouncing on the bed looking for a pillow fight, Runnin' through the sprinkler with a big popsicle grin, Dancin with her dad, lookin up at him, If he gives me a hard time, I can't blame the fellow, I'm the one who's stealing Cinderella," Wicks sings.
Kip Moore's "Hey Pretty Girl": Kip Moore's "Hey Pretty Girl" is one of his most successful singles to date. Just like the song says, it would make a great song for the first dance and it deals with longevity in marriage and in life. Moore knocks this song out of the ballpark.
"Hey pretty girl, can I have this dance, And the next one after that, Gonna make you mine there's a real good chance, Hey pretty girl, can I have this dance," Moore sings.
Keith Urban's "Making Memories of Us": Keith Urban's "Making Memories of Us" is a simple acoustic ballad, yet deep and extremely meaningful, since the male narrator professes his love for his significant other. He makes a promise that he is going to be there forever, and they will simultaneously be making fond memories together. Urban's vocals on this tune are mellifluous.
"I'm gonna love you like nobody loves you, And I'll earn your trust making memories of us," Urban sings.
Rascal Flatts' "Bless the Broken Road": I don't think a wedding song could get any more beautiful than Rascal Flatt's "Bless The Broken Road." It is ideal for the first dance or to be played during the reception, since it works either way. This piano-driven ballad is rich sonically and lyrically.
Standout lyrics from the song include: "Every long lost dream led me to where you are, Others who broke my heart they were like Northern stars, Pointing me on my way into your loving arms, This much I know is true," Rascal Flatts' lead singer Gary LeVox sings.
