The 20 best country songs about fathers.

imageThere are few musical genres that contain so many songs on fatherhood like country music. It’s from this genre that I’ve compiled my Top 20 Countdown of songs about dads.

Even if you’re not a fan of country music, if you’re a fan of dads, you’ll find many treasures below.

Some of these songs are old, some are new; some are about happy times, some are about regrettable times; some are about adoption, some are about loss, some are upbeat and will put a smile on your face, some will tear your heart out and leave you reaching for a tissue.

Happy Father’s Day to all those dads who got it right, and even those who didn’t.

Slow fade.

A song selection dedicated to all those whose lives aren’t picture perfect.

Just know, whatever your slow fade is, you are not alone.
