The Best Country Wedding Processional Songs
Don’t miss out on these other popular play lists for the ultimate celebration on your wedding day:
1. ‘I Love The Way You Love Me’ – John Michael Montgomery
Lyrics You’ll Love: But I love the way you love me. / Strong and wild, slow and easy. / Heart and soul, so completely. / I love the way you love me.
Can you name some perfect things about your future husband? What about the imperfections, can you name them? Bet you still love him despite those imperfections, right?
Those imperfections make him who he is, and you wouldn’t have it any other way. This John Michael Montgomery song is a celebration of that.
As you walk down the aisle, listen to his sweetish, pop-style tones as he croons about how much you love your future husband, and you’ll always love him. Your future husband will be hearing those beautiful words while also looking at the woman he loves more than anything.
2. ‘Then’ – Brad Paisley
Lyrics You’ll Love: And now you’re my whole life / Now you’re my whole world
You think of your processional music as your final journey toward married life. Once you get to the end of that aisle, you’ll be married to your best friend. Think how far the two of you have come together. Think about when you realized that you were in love with him.
As we said at the start, processional music always works best when the song tells a story of your romance, and ‘Then’ by Brad Paisley does that. He sings about the feelings of the first meeting, the marriage proposal, and finally committing yourself to the person that you want to be with.
It is the perfect send-off from single life. You have all those adventures ahead of you!
3. ‘You Had Me From Hello’ – Kenny Chesney
Lyrics You’ll Love: You ask me if I love you, if I always will / Well, you had me from “Hello”
Did you fall in love at first sight? Did you have a particularly difficult relationship before you found ‘the one’? Well, Kenny Chesney’s hit ‘You Had Me From Hello’ may be one of the best country music processional songs for you.
This song is about opening yourself up to love. Breaking down those emotional barriers and letting somebody inside. Let your partner know exactly how much he means to you when you walk down the aisle to Kenny Chesney’s serenades.
4. ‘Baby I’m Yours’ – Tanya Tucker
Lyrics You’ll Love: Baby I’m yours / And I’m yours until the stars fall from the sky / Yours until the rivers all run dry / In other words until the day I die
We like to see ‘Baby I’m Yours’ by Tanya Tucker as your pre-vow. This song is going to make all the same promises that you will make once you get to the end of the aisle, and just before you say ‘I Do’.
We like to think that having this as your processional music can serve as a little reminder of what the two of you are about to commit to.
5. ‘Soulmate’ – Josh Turner
Lyrics You’ll Love: Soulmate / Until the end of time / You’re my soulmate
When your husband watches you walk down that aisle, he is not only going to be in awe of your beauty, but he is going to remember that you are his soulmate. This entire day is about the two of you celebrating that you have found one another.
The song reminds the two of you to support one another because of that love (‘When I get down you’re the one / That lifts me up’) and a reminder to everybody in that room that what you have is the purest and truest form of love (‘There’s no mistaking what we have is true’)
Josh Turner is a great singer too. There won’t be a dry eye in that room.
6. ‘Amazed’ – Lonestar
Lyrics You’ll Love: I don’t know how you do what you do / I’m so in love with you
‘Amazed’ by Lonestar is normally reserved for first dances. You’ve probably heard this song before (it starts with ‘every time our eyes meet), but we absolutely love it as one of the top country music processional songs.
We know we keep saying this, but you are going to look beautiful when you walk down that aisle and, dare we say it, your partner is going to be ‘amazed by you’. He is going to realize that he loves every single part of who you are. You love him in the same way.
Of course, if you really love Lonestar (who doesn’t?), then have this as your first dance instead. That way, you can be ‘amazed’ while holding one another.
7. ‘Only You Can Love Me This Way’ – Keith Urban
Lyrics You’ll Love: That you’re always in my heart / You’re always on my mind
Have you had a string of quite terrible relationships? Felt like nobody could ever love you, and then you found the most special person in the world? This is the processional song for you!
As you walk down the aisle to top country musician Keith Urban’s singing, your future husband will hear about how special he makes you feel. How you have never felt like this in your life. He is going to get an even bigger reminder when you say “I do”!
8. ‘Yours’ – Russell Dickerson
Lyrics You’ll Love: The best me has his arms around you / You make me better than I was before
Many of us feel that our partners have changed us into better people. We certainly wouldn’t be the same person without our romantic partner. If you feel that you have changed for the better because of the love that you have received, then try ‘Yours’ by Russell Dickerson on for size.
As you walk down the aisle, your husband will get a reminder of why you are marrying him.
9. ‘I Could Not Ask For More’ – Sara Evans
Lyrics You’ll Love: These are the moments / I thank God that I’m alive / These are the moments, I’ll remember all my life
We bet that for as long as you live, you’re going to be remembering the moment that you walked down the aisle to say ‘I Do’ to your love. This is why we find this song so perfect as one of the country music processional songs.
It is about remembering the most joyful moments. It would be great if the two of you locked eyes when Sara Evans belted out this amazing line ‘Lookin’ in your eyes / Seein’ all I need’
10. ‘Yes’ – Chad Brock
Lyrics You’ll Love: She said yes! and i said wow!
We are sure that you have thought more than once that fate brought you and your partner together. We love ‘Yes’ as it tells the story of the first date, all the way up to the proposal and marriage. It is about a series of ‘yes’ along the way.
People just taking the plunge and letting fate guide their love. If you feel this describes your love story, then make sure your wedding venue plays this as you walk down the aisle!
11. ‘It’s Your Love’ – Tim McGraw & Faith Hill
Lyrics You’ll Love: It’s your love / It just does something to me / It sends a shock right through me / I can’t get enough
Husband and wife duo Tim McGraw and Faith Hill teamed up for this country music power ballad. Listen as they share the story of their love and how it feels so blessed to be loved by the person that you care for.
While most of the focus is going to be on the bride as she walks down the aisle, the groom is there too. Duets work so well, because it allows it to ‘feel’ as if both of you are sharing your love story.
12. ’Look At Me Now’ – Matt Stell
Lyrics You’ll Love: Even though I swore that I wouldn’t cry / I lost it the second I saw you in that dress
This song was basically written for processional music. Look at the lyric that we quoted above, it is pointing out how beautiful you will look in your dress, and it will bring a tear to your husband’s eyes. This is the perfect song to get your magical day off to a great start!
13. ‘When I Said I Do’ – Clint Black
Lyrics You’ll Love: When I said I do, I meant that I will ’til the end of all time
Ok. Technically, this song is for after you get married. However, the lyrics make sense for your processional music.
It is a story of how your life is going to change, for the better the very second that you say I do. This lyric from the end of the song really sums it up; ‘But forever you and I will be the ones’.
14. ‘In Case You Didn’t Know’ – Brett Young
Lyrics You’ll Love: In case you didn’t know / Baby, I’m crazy ’bout you / And I would be lyin’ if I said / That I could live this life without you
Your future husband is going to be a big bundle of nerves at the end of that aisle! Use this banging hit from Brett Young to remind him that you are marrying him for a reason. You are absolutely crazy about him.
This song will let him know all that means to you, right before you say ‘I Do’ and seal that deal forever.
15. ‘You’re Still The One’ – Shania Twain
Lyrics You’ll Love: We mighta took the long way / We knew we’d get there someday
What an amazing song to wrap up on! A lot of people see this as a traditional first dance, but it is another song we see great as processional music, especially if it has taken you a while to get to the wedding (several years).
This song reminds the couple that despite the bumps along the way, you still want each other, and you are about to declare how much you love one another in front of God!

What are the best country music processional songs?
Is wedding processional music the same as bride entrance music?
It can be. A lot of brides love to walk down the aisle to the same song they entered in on. Although, it doesn’t have to be. Feel free to choose any songs you want, whenever you want. It is your day. Make it unique.
Should the groom know what the wedding processional music is?
This depends on you. If you want to share, feel free to share. If you want him to be surprised by the song you chose, don’t. We’re sure he’ll have a smile on his face either way.
