Texas Country - Father/Daughter Dance

I'm trying to find a good Texas Country song for the father daughter dance and I am completely stumped.
For those who don't know... Texas Country and Country are two completely different types of music (no George Strait, Jason Aldean, Zac Brown, Taylor Swift, etc).
All of our important songs (first dance, etc) are going to be by Texas Country musicians, just am having a hard time trying to come up with one for this dance.

Any suggestions?

    ok I really don't know the difference between Texas Country and Country (I'm from Jersey, lol) but does "Just Fishin" by Trace Adkins count?

    I really considered this song for the Father/Daughter Dance, but didn't go with it because neither one of us is into country music.   That being said, this is perfect:

    My Wish - Rascall Flatts
    I hope that the days come easy and the moments pass slow,
    And each road leads you where you want to go,
    And if you're faced with a choice, and you have to choose,
    I hope you choose the one that means the most to you.
    And if one door opens to another door closed,
    I hope you keep on walkin' till you find the window,
    If it's cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile,

    But more than anything, more than anything,
    My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
    Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
    You never need to carry more than you can hold,
    And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
    I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
    Yeah, this, is my wish.

    I hope you never look back, but ya never forget,
    All the ones who love you, in the place you left,
    I hope you always forgive, and you never regret,
    And you help somebody every chance you get,
    Oh, you find God's grace, in every mistake,
    And you always give more than you take.

    But more than anything, yeah, and more than anything,
    My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
    Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
    You never need to carry more than you can hold,
    And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
    I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
    Yeah, this, is my wish.

    My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
    Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
    You never need to carry more than you can hold,
    And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
    I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
    Yeah, this, is my wish.

    This is my wish
    I hope you know somebody loves you
    May all your dreams stay big

    KatC-  what are some of the other songs your using, specifically your first dance?  We are doing Texas Country and are having a hard time picking a first dance. I just dont think our father daughter dance will be texas country as my dad likes butterfly kisses!  :)

    MBS - We are doing Texas Angel by Honeybrowne for our first dance.
    I listen to Pandora all day and have been writing down songs as I hear them and one I came across that is really good is Forever by Bart Crow. If Texas Angel wasn't our song, I would completely use that one. Also other ones I found are:
    Feet Don't Touch the Ground - Stoney LaRue
    Set the world on fire - Josh Abbott
    Baby's got a whole lot more - Reckless Kelly
    Reckless - Reckless Kelly
    One thing - Pat Green
    Good night for dancing - Josh Abbott
    Stick Round - Reckless Kelly
    Love finds everyone - Cory Morrow
    Freeze Frame Time - Brandon Rhyder

    Casey Donahew channel on Pandora is my favorite lol. Hope this helps you out some!!! Good luck   Hook 'Em!!

     

  • Thanks ladies.  I want all texas country for the first songs as well.  I'm going to use your list to help me out
  • I am looking for the same thing.  Look up Kevin Fowler -Daddies and Daugthers that was is pretty good.  I may use it but I'm still on hunt right now.

  • I'm from Texas but I live in Virginia- we haven't decided which state to get married in but if it's here in VA I plan on using Gary P. Nunn's "What Ilike about Texas"- tribute to home and one of my dad's favorite artists.
