Country songs about little boys and girls are often the most touching because they tell a familiar and relatable story. Every person remembers what it was like to be a kid. These best country songs about sons and daughters provide a kind of passionate connections that musicians hope people search for in music. We hate to say this, but onboard is the final set of our Best Country Songs for Your Sons and Daughters.
“There Goes My Life”, Kenny Chesney
“There Goes My Life” was released in October of 2003 as the lead track from Chesney’s eighth studio album When the Sun Goes Down. It stayed at No. 1 for seven weeks in a row. The song is for anyone who does not think they are ready to be a parent, but it is happening anyway. As the song advances to its chorus, it takes on a different aspect of life. Chesney sings about a daughter leaving home to head to the West Coast, to live life on her own. Chesney the sings,
There goes my life
There goes my future, my everything
I love you
“I Hope You Dance”, Lee Ann Womack
Released in 2000 from Womack’s album of the same name, “I Hope You Dance” peaked on the first spot on Billboard’s Country chart and fourteenth on the Billboard Hot 100. Moreover, the song won a Grammy for Best Country Song as well as a nod for Song of the Year. Do you still remember the lyrics? The hopes of parents for their children are put into words in this song. It wishes that their children do not lose their sense of wonder to love not leaving them empty-handed. Finally, the parent hopes her children to dance instead of sitting it all out.
I hope you dance (Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder)
I hope you dance (Where those years have gone?)
“What I Never Knew I Always Wanted”, Carrie Underwood
“What I Never Knew I Always Wanted” is from Underwood’s 2015 album Storyteller. It gives us a gentle look into the Underwood’s heart. She dedicates the song to her husband and their son, Isaiah. It perfectly sums up the feelings of her married life together with having a kid. Underwood once admitted she cannot imagine herself without either one of them.
Never pictured myself singing lullabies
Sitting in a rocking chair in the middle of the night
In the quiet, in the dark
You’re stealing every bit of my heart with your daddy’s eyes
What a sweet surprise.
