For as long as there has been music, people have been inspired by and have written songs about their children. Songs about daughters are especially common because daughters just have a special place in the hearts of many country artists.
No matter if you are a mother who is feeling that maternal bond with her daughter or if you are a man who is protective of his little girl, having a daughter is sure to provide more than enough inspiration for at least one song about them. Some of these songs are cleverly disguised with figurative language, while others lay it on the line just as plain as can be. Whatever the case, country music is quite possibly leading the rest of the musical genres in maternal or paternal love towards their respecting daughters. Here is a great list of songs for you to enjoy. We also have a playlist on Spotify with all of the songs included here at the bottom of the page.

1. My Little Girl by Tim McGraw
|Album||Reflected: Greatest Hits Vol. 2|
Some people say that there is no greater gift in this world than the love that a father has for his daughter. He is usually the first man in a girl’s life, and the way that he loves her will set her expectations about how she should be treated by others. As she grows, the father will adamantly state that she will “always be his little girl,” what he’s saying is that he will always be there whenever she needs him. Tim McGraw conveys this message in a heart-warming fashion with his beautiful ode to his daughter, “My Little Girl.”
2. I Loved Her First by Heartland
|Album||I Loved Her First|
There’s no feeling that’s as bittersweet as a father giving his daughter away on her wedding day. One day you go from being their eyes and their everything to seeing yourself being replaced as her number one. Nevertheless, there’s one thing that you can say that will always ring true to life. As Lonestar says in the title track of their 2006 debut album, “I Loved Her First.” What’s even more impressive about this song is that it was the first single they recorded for the album. Talk about getting it out of the park on the first swing.
3. My Wish by Rascal Flatts
|Album||Me and My Gang|
The majority of parents around the world would probably tell you that their biggest wishes for their children are to see them happy, and healthy, and to see all of their dreams come true. Written by Jeffrey Steele and Steve Robson, this phenomenal Billboard number-one track from the country music mega-stars Rascal Flatts was dedicated to Steele’s daughter Justine.

4. There Goes My Life by Kenny Chesney
|Album||When the Sun Goes Down|
Isn’t it funny how when you first find out that you are going to be a parent, you feel like your entire life changes, but then your children end up becoming your entire life? That’s the message expressed in Kenny Chesney’s sentimental ballad “There Goes My Life.” The song is about a young man who finds out that he’s going to have a little girl, and he thinks that his life is about to end. By the end of the song, Chesney comes to realize that his daughter has become the biggest love that he has in his life.
5. You’re Gonna Miss This by Trace Adkins
|Album||American Man: Greatest Hits Volume II|
Sometimes, the best ideas for songs are inspired by events that happen in our daily lives. Co-written by Ashley Gorley and Lee Thomas Miller, “You’re Gonna Miss This” was named Song of the Year at the 39th Annual Nashville Songwriters Hall Fame induction ceremony in Nashville. It was inspired by some advice that Gorley received from a repairman when his kids were running around wow the repairman was trying to work. The gentleman told Gourley that one day he was going to miss this when they got older, and that’s where the title of the song came from.
6. It Won’t Be Like This for Long by Darius Rucker

I’ve got a 13-year-old and a 7-year-old. I wrote it with Ashley Gorley and Chris DuBois, who also have daughters.” He went on to say that this was his favorite song to play live, as well as his favorite song on the record.
7. Daddy’s Little Girl by The Shires
Sometimes it takes losing someone to make us realize how much we appreciate them. However, some young children lose their parents while they are still far too young to appreciate this. Crissie Rhodes of The Shires wrote this song as a tribute to her dad, who passed away when she was just eight years old. Rhodes says that because she was so young at the time, she has never given it much thought until recently. She did say that when she recorded the song, it hurt to reopen some of those wounds, but she hopes that it can help other people.
8. I’ll Be Your Man (Song For a Daughter) by Zac Brown Band
|Album||Jekyll + Hyde|
Zac Brown is known for his eclectic blend of multiple genres to form his unique style of country music. He has Alsop made-to-order no secret about his love for his family, especially his five children. However, we all know that there is always something special about being a daddy’s little girl. In an interview with Rolling Stone about this track, Brown said, “There’s no greater honor than to be a father to a daughter and to know that love; to have unconditional love and to be able to be their man until they get older… to essentially always be their man.”
9. Don’t Blink by Kenny Chesney
|Album||Just Who I Am: Poets & Pirates|
Kenny Chesney once said that this song was inspired by a true story that he saw on the news which featured a man who was celebrating his 102nd birthday. When asked what his secret to longevity was, the elderly gentleman simply replied, “don’t blink.” Destiny went on to say that he went through a span of two years in which he lost three family members who were particularly close to him. The song serves as a reminder that anyone you love can be gone in the blink of an eye, so you need to cherish them while they’re with you.
10. Coal Miner’s Daughter by Loretta Lynn
|Album||Coal Miner’s Daughter|
Who better to include on this list than the Coal Miner’s Daughter, Loretta Lynn? Born in Butcher Hollow, Kentucky, in 1932, Loretta Lynn wrote songs about the things that she saw and experienced daily. Strangely enough, the iconic singer debated on whether or not to release her hit song because she thought that it was too specific to reach a broader audience. Loretta grew up seeing her dad working in the Kentucky coal mines, so that’s what she sang about. As the story goes, the song that was written on a $17 guitar became the biggest hit of her career.
11. You’ll Always Be My Baby (Written for Daughters’ Weddings) by Alan Jackson
|Album||Where Have You Gone|
If anybody is qualified to write a Sentimental song for the father-daughter dance at his daughter’s wedding, it would most certainly be Alan Jackson. After all, the Nashville songwriters Hall of Fame inductee has written 35 number-one hits in his career. As the story goes, Jackson was tasked with writing the song that would be used during that special dance when his daughter Mattie married assistant district attorney Ben Selecman in the summer of 2017. The song reflects on many of the memories that Mattie and her father share, and also that she will always be his baby girl.
12. I Hope You Dance by Lee Ann Womack
|Album||I Hope You Dance|
Sure, our jobs as parents include preparing our kids to face the world that will be waiting for them when the time comes. However, we also hope to inspire our children to be brave and try new things in life. That’s the sentiment behind Lee Ann Womack’s hit single “I Hope You Dance.” It’s about taking chances and finding inspiration in places where you might not otherwise find it. Womack said that when she wrote this song, she was going through a painful divorce at the time. She wanted to encourage people that they shouldn’t be afraid to love.
13. Daddy’s Little Girl by Kippi Brannon
|Album||I’d Be With You|
Instead of a song written from the perspective of a parent about their daughter, Kippi Brannon wrote this song about her father from the perspective of a young child growing up as a daddy’s girl. The song starts with Brandon going with her father to get an ice cream cone, and her talking about how she has him wrapped around her finger like her baby curls. She then talks about her wedding day and the fond memories that she shares with her dad. The song ends with Kippi wishing that she can take care of him for as long as possible.
14. Ready, Set, Don’t Go by Billy Ray Cyrus

15. Stealing Cinderella by Chuck Wicks
Of the most nervous times in a young man’s life is when he asks his future bride’s father for her hand in marriage. Under normal circumstances, the answer would be a resounding “yes,” but the intimidation factor is still off the charts. Now, imagine you are marrying a young lady who works at Disney World and dresses as Cinderella for a living. This song was inspired by Chuck Wicks’ girlfriend who would greet visitors at the amusement park dressed as the princess. The song was co-written over the Thanksgiving break by Wicks along with songwriters George Teren and Rivers Rutherford.
16. The Best Part of Me by Lee Brice
Lee Brice is no stranger to recording songs that are dedicated to his children. The 38-year-old singer released the single “Boy” from his self-titled fourth studio album, and dedicated the track to his two sons, Dakota and Ryker. However, when his wife Sarah became pregnant with their third child, Brice found out that this bundle of joy was going to be a little girl.

Although the boys had to share a song, Trulee’s got one of her own.
17. Dads and Daughters by MaRynn Taylor
|Album||Dads and Daughters|
Let’s face it, some Father’s Day gifts just aren’t up to par. Some of us get neckties, While others get t-shirts or slippers. So, for Father’s Day in 2020, MaRynn Taylor wrote her dad a song as his gift. The new country music with Superstar gathered inspiration for the song by watching old home videos of her and her family.

18. In My Daughter’s Eyes by Martina McBride
Okay, gentlemen, let’s get one thing clear. Fathers aren’t the only parents who can take pride in their little girls. Mothers, grandmothers, and aunts have been a symbol of strength and unity for young women around the world for several millennia. In her beautiful tribute to Motherhood, Martina McBride finds her identity as a mother through the eyes of her child, which can be awe-inspiring. When she looks into the eyes of her daughter, she sees herself as a hero and someone who knows no fear. She becomes the person she needs to be for herself and her child.

Faith Hill had a banner year in 1995. That was the year that she released her second studio album “It Matters to Me,” which was certified four times platinum by the RIAA for selling over 4.4 million copies, and produced five top-ten singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. One of those hit singles was “You Can’t Lose Me,” this song expresses a mother’s love for her daughter by telling her that you can’t always win, but she will never lose her.

This is one of those old songs that everybody knows and even today it’s certainly worthy of a spot on your playlist.
20. Lady by Brett Young
|Album||Weekends Look a Little Different These Days|
Country music singer Brett Young got a two-for-one special when he wrote his song “Lady,” which appeared on his album “Weekends Look a Little Different These Days.” As it turns out, the song is not only about Brett’s daughter Presley Elizabeth, but it is also dedicated to his wife Taylor as well.

21. Butterfly Kisses by Bob Carlisle
|Album||Butterfly Kisses & Bedtime Prayers|
I can remember a time in the late 1990s when you couldn’t go to a wedding without hearing the bride walk down the aisle to this song. Bob Carlisle truly produced lightning in a bottle in 1997 when he released his Grammy Award-winning single “Butterfly Kisses” which appeared on his album “Butterfly Kisses & Bedtime Prayers.” The song goes along a father and daughter’s journey from the time she is a little girl until the time she gets married, but he knows that it’s now time to let her go and start her own life, although they’ll always have the memories.
22. Diamonds & Daughters by Aaron Watson
Here’s an interesting fact about Aaron Watson. Not only did he write the song “Diamonds & Daughters” for his daughter Jolee Kate, but he also wrote the theme song from The Underdog for his two sons. According to Watson, his daughter became highly upset with him when she discovered that her brothers had a song written for them and she didn’t. The singer also added, “Even though I wrote that for Jolee Kate, I wanted all daughters to hear that song and just know that they’re special.” I guess you just may be able to make everybody happy all the time.
23. The Daughters by Little Big Town
With Little Big Town, making music is a family affair. Kimberly Schlapman and her husband Stephen have a daughter named Daisy, while her bandmate Phillip Sweet and his wife Rebecca have a daughter named Penelopi. Needless to say, their children are something that his family holds near and dear to them. This track was written for Daisy and Penelopi, as well as any other girls who dare to defy expectations and refuse to be told what to do with their lives. The song is about going against the grain of the many traditional stereotypes placed on young girls today.
24. A Letter to My Daughter by Kerri Brown
|Album||A Letter to My Daughter|
It’s always the times that you want to last the longest that pass so quickly, like when your kids are growing up. Whenever you find the magic in those small moments like cuddling together or hearing your baby’s laughter, you want to get lost in those moments and you never want them to end. Now, can you imagine experiencing those moments as a first-time mother of a brand-new baby girl? If you take all of those thoughts and wrap them in a boat, you get Kerri Brown’s perfectly worded “A Letter to My Daughter.”
25. Dance with My Daughter by Jason Blaine
There is no better news than hearing that you are going to be the beaming parent of a baby girl, and there is perhaps no prouder moment than when that baby is first introduced into the world. From the moment a little girl makes her first appearance, her bond with her daddy should be inseparable. He should spend the rest of his life trying to make memories with his daughter. In “Dance with My Daughter,” Jason Blaine sings about wanting to make a lasting memory with his daughter while he still can make the most of this special moment.
26. She’s Somebody’s Daughter (Remixed) by Drew Baldridge & Lathan Warlick
|Album||“She’s Somebody’s Daughter (Remix)|
One of the most important things that we can teach our daughters is that they should be treated with respect and that they have amazing self-worth. When your daughter knows her true value, she will be much less likely to let somebody take advantage of her. In the remixed version of “She’s Somebody’s Daughter,” Drew Baldridge & Lathan Warlick let all of their daughters’ potential suitors know that their children are somebody’s daughters. They also go out of their way to let all of the girls out there know that they are more than good enough and strong enough for anybody. If you’re looking for new country songs about daughters this is one you’ll definitely want to listen to.
27. Daddy Dance With Me by Krystal Keith
|Album||Whiskey & Lace|
Although there have been many songs that have been written from the perspective of a father giving his daughter away on her wedding day, there haven’t been that many written from the perspective of the bride. Written by Krystal Keith, Mica Roberts, and Sonya Rutledge, this song was dedicated to Krystal’s father, who is quite a famous country music superstar in his own right. She is the daughter of the one and only Toby Keith and presented this song to her father at her wedding during their father-daughter dance when she got married in Los Angeles.

29. I’ll Be by Reba McEntire
|Album||So Good Together|
Reba McEntire is one of country music’s most celebrated vocalists and personalities, and her relationship with her beloved father has been well-documented in her music. However, this song does not pertain to her father. Instead, this one is about a mother’s unconditional love for her child. In the song, MacIntyre says that she will be a shoulder for her child to cry on, a rock that will be strong for them, and someone that will hold on to them. When there’s no one else she can count on, Reba says that her daughter can count on her.
30. Daddy’s Hands by Holly Dunn
This song is told from the perspective of a young girl whose favorite memories stem from reminiscing about her childhood through the actions of her daddy’s hands. In this Grammy-nominated track from her self-titled debut album, Holly Dunn talks about how she remembers seeing her Daddy’s Hands folded in prayer, for how they lovingly and Tenderly held her mother, or how they even worked until they bled. She also says that they were soft when she was crying, but they were hard as still when she had done something wrong. Besides being a talented singer, Holly Dunn is also an accomplished artist.
31. You Can Let Go by Crystal Shawanda
|Album||Dawn of a New Day|
Do you remember the freedom you first experienced when you learned how to ride a bicycle without training wheels? Wasn’t that one of the most exhilarating times in your entire life? Crystal Shawanda’s song “You Can Let Go” starts with a memory of her dad teaching her to ride a bicycle, and telling her dad when they got near the street that he could let go and that she was ready to ride on her own. As the song progresses, she’s about to get married and once again telling her dad that he can let go of her.
32. To The Guys That Date My Girls by Thomas Rhett
There may be nothing as cliche as an overprotective, shotgun-cleaning, country music-loving dad who does his best to scare off any potential suitors his little girl may have. Although that may be true, there’s also nothing quite as scary as an overprotective dad when it comes to his baby girl. In this song by Thomas Rhett, he lays it all on the line by telling all candidates that they had better treat his little girls the right way or they are going to have to answer to him, and something tells me they don’t want to do that.
33. The Man Who Loves You The Most by Zac Brown Band
|Album||The Man Who Loves You The Most|
Zac Brown is one of my favorite country music singers not only today but of all time. Something about when Zac sings about his children is that you can tell that his lyrics come from the heart, and he feels every word of it. “The Man Who Loves You The Most” is certainly no exception. The song is about wanting the best for your children and wanting to give them the world. It’s also about The balancing act required to give them everything they need. Sometimes, that means that you have to leave to go on tour while your family stays home.
34. Shattered Glass by Brad Paisley
|Album||Moonshine in the Trunk|
Although this song has become an empowerment anthem for women around the world, Brad Paisley originally wrote this song for his wife, actress Kimberly Williams-Paisley. Kimberly has been an outspoken advocate for Alzheimer’s research since her mother’s diagnosis. When asked about any additional meaning behind The song, Paisley commented, “This song is supposed to be a pep talk to her and any woman who has dreams she wants to achieve.” He went on to say that the song was supposed to be a vote of confidence, letting women around the globe know that he believes in them.
35. Just Fishin’ by Trace Adkins
|Album||Proud to Be Here|
Trace Adkins is well known for being an avid Hunter and fisherman in his home state of Louisiana. He grew up learning the ways of the wilderness and has taught his children the same things. This is reflected in his song “Just Fishin,” which is featured on his album “Proud to Be Here.” In an another interview with The Boot, Trace Adkins had this to say about his hit single, “I’ve taught all my girls to fish, and it’s about the lessons that you learn from teaching your children to fish. It’s the time that you spend together doing it. That’s what’s really important.”
36. Baby Girl by Sugarland
|Album||Premium Quality Tunes|
Founded in Atlanta, Georgia by Jennifer Nettles, Kristen Hall, and Kristian Bush, Sugarland was formerly a country music trio that saw immediate success with their first single” Baby Girl,” from their debut album” Premium Quality Tunes.” Kristen Hall has since left the group, but they have carried on as a duo. Nettles has gone on record as saying that the song is semi-autobiographical, and has become somewhat of a self-fulfilling prophecy. She has also made the record clear by stating that anytime she asked her mother for financial help, she was quite generous and willing to help in any way she could.
37. I Do by Alan Jackson
|Album||Where Have You Gone|
Most daughters aren’t fortunate enough to have their fathers write a song for them on the day of their wedding. However, Alan Jackson’s daughters have each had the privilege of their father writing and performing a wedding song for them. To top it off, both songs appeared on the same album, which was 2021’s “Where Have You Gone.” The song is told from the perspective of a man who has found the woman of his dreams, and affirms his vows to her as the song progresses. Originally, Jackson said he would only do one song for all three daughters, but I guess that changed.
38. The Girl You Think I Am by Carrie Underwood
Carrie Underwood has been one of country music’s most successful female artists since winning the fourth season of the American Idol competition in 2006. The singer has gone on since then to sell over 66 million albums worldwide and has had an astounding Billboard Hot Country top-ten hits, with 14 of them reaching the top spot on the charts. Although “The Girl You Think I Am” may not have been one of her biggest hits, it was certainly one of our most poignant songs. The track is about how her partner thinks that she’s strong and fearless, but she’s still just a daddy’s girl at heart.
39. Dance Baby Dance by Chris Cagle
|Album||Back in the Saddle|
Chris Cagle got his start writing songs for other artists like David Kersh before he became a household name and signed a record deal with Virgin Records. Fast-forward to 2012, and cable decided to call it quits after releasing one final album which was appropriately titled “Back in the Saddle.” That album would end up featuring one of Cagle’s best songs, which was written about his daughter and called “Dance Baby Dance.” The message of the song is fairly simple. One day, your children will leave and start a family of their own. Cherish them and spend time with them while you can.
40. My Father’s Daughter by Jewel (Featuring Dolly Parton)
|Album||Picking Up the Pieces|
Jewel Kilcher, more commonly known by her stage name Jewel, started in music as an interesting hybrid of pop, folk, and acoustic music Blended to make a sound that was unique and distinctively hers.

41. This Dance by Scott Thomas Laughridge
|Album||This Dance (Remix)|
If Scott Thomas was aiming to make the perfect father-daughter wedding dance when he recorded his song “This Dance,” then he certainly hit the proverbial nail right on the head. After all, this song was included in The Nash News’ prestigious list of the Top Country Songs for Father-Daughter Dances. Appearing at number nine on the list, this song is about the joy that a father gets from getting to dance with his daughter on her wedding day one last time before she goes off to start a family of her own with her new husband.
42. Daddy’s Little Girl by Chad Kaney
|Album||Daddy’s Little Girl|
If this song sounds familiar to you, it’s probably because it became a big Tick Tock trend of videos women everywhere were posting in honor of their fathers. The song sees a father comparing some of the most beautiful sights he has ever seen to the beauty that he sees in his daughter. He goes on to tell his little girl that he is going to love her forever and that she is always going to be the very best part of him. Like any good dad, he also promises to always protect her to the best of his ability. This is without a doubt one of those songs that can make you cry because it’s so beautiful.
43. Best Parts Of Me by Will Dempsy
|Album||Best Parts of Me|
Is it me, or is there a recurring theme of proud fathers who are more than happy to announce to the world that their baby girls are the very best parts of them? Well, let’s continue with that trend by exploring Will Dempsey’s heartwarming track “Best Parts Of Me.” Inspired by Dempsey’s daughter Isabella, the single took off once videos of her reaction to the track went viral. The video for the song was filmed by Will’s wife Tiffany, and also includes tons of the family’s footage from Isabella’s childhood, which it’s the mood and the sentiment perfectly.
44. He Didn’t Have to Be by Brad Paisley
|Album||Who Needs Pictures|
While this Brad Paisley hit wasn’t written from the perspective of a daughter, it can fit in practically any blended family scenario, so I will include it on this list. Of course, I’m talking about Paisley’s hit “He Didn’t Have to Be,” it is about a man who starts dating a woman with a child. The two get serious, so he steps up and becomes a father that the child never had before. The three-time Grammy Award-winning artist certainly knew how to pull at the heartstrings with this track which can serve as the blueprint for starting a blended family. This is easily one of the most popular country songs about daughters of all time.
45. You’re Gonna Be by Reba McEntire
After selling over 75 million albums around the world, there’s no mistaking that Reba McEntire has earned her title as the Queen of Country Music. In her amazing career, she has charted 106 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, with 60 of them reaching the top-ten, and an astounding 24 of them climbing to the top spot. Although “You’re Gonna Be” wasn’t one of her highest charting kids, it was one of the most honest and sincere songs of her career. The song is about looking at your baby girl and envisioning everything you want her to be.
46. Prettiest Girl in the World by Logan Mize
|Album||Still That Kid|
If you ask most dads of little girls, they will more than likely tell you that their daughter is easily the most beautiful girl in the world. That’s because every time he looks at his baby girl, a daddy will always see a part of himself in her that he will be proud of. What touches me the most about this song is the line where Logan Mize says to his daughter, “It’s hard to believe that the prettiest girl in the world needs to hear somebody loves her.” I guess everybody needs to hear that now and then.
47. Promise to Love Her by Blane Howard
|Album||Looking for Nothing to Do|
In his most recent single, Blane Howard sings about driving over 500 miles to ask his fiance’s father for her hand in marriage and being a nervous wreck the entire time. He says that he had it all worked out in his head and even had it written down. However, the two make it to the altar and pledge their love to each other, while Howard is promising her father that he will show her the love and affection that his baby girl deserves as he thinks back to his original promise to love her the way she deserves to be loved.
48. Good Hands by Kylie Morgan
|Album||Songs To Say I Do|
Some artists are blessed and talented in it to write and record a song to be used for weddings, but Kylie Morgan wrote an entire EP about tying the proverbial knot called “Songs To Say I Do” that was inspired by her own wedding in October of 2022. Of all of the songs on the EP, the track “Good Hands” is the one that strikes a chord with me the most. The track is about a young lady trying to convince her father that she will be in good hands when she marries her fiance and leaves home.
49. See You Again by Carrie Underwood
There can’t be anything in this life more painful than the experience of losing a child, especially for a mother. I can’t possibly imagine how painful that would be to carry a child for 9 months only to have to say goodbye, either forever or for a prolonged time. Perhaps the most emotional and heartbreaking song on this list, this song is about a mother who has to say goodbye to her daughter before she’s ready. The ballad was originally recorded for the soundtrack to the film The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, but was also included on Underwood’s album “Blown Away.”
50. Then They Do by Trace Adkins
|Album||Greatest Hits Collection, Vol. 1|
When your children are young, they tend to get into all kinds of things. However, once they get older, you realize that you miss those times when mischief seemed to be all that they were getting into. As time passes you miss the playfulness that he had when they were younger, although these were the times that you had hoped would pass quickly not that long ago. If this describes a situation you’ve been in recently, then you can perfectly relate to Trace Adkins’s hit single “Then They Do,” pictures with the topic of I’m passing by faster than you expect.
