Hey blog world! Father’s day is coming up very soon so I thought I’d use this post to share with you some of my favorite Country songs about Dad’s!
“Little Guy” by Gord Bamford http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S_wso8Zo7-A. This is a song that Gord wrote for his son. It’s so sweet! The music video is great too! His son is adorable!
“My Daughter’s Father” by Gord Bamford http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4fdeyEJ1s_k. This is a song that Gord wrote for his daughter named Paisley. To be honest I actually kinda like this song better than “Little Guy”.
“Watching You” by Rodney Atkins http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DSx98jbt37Y. This is a song (and also the 1st verse is kind of a cautionary tale) about a Dad who’s Son is watching him (thus the name of the song). He does everything the way that his Dad does! I love this song because it’s so upbeat!
“He Didn’t Have To Be” by Brad Paisley http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DSx98jbt37Y. This is a rare Paisley gem. It’s a serious song with not one bit of humor! He hasn’t written too many of these. It’s a song about the kid of a single mother who starts dating this new dude who includes the kid in everything and the kid hopes to be at least half the Dad that this guy didn’t have to be. It’s such a sweet song! I can’t remember the name of the family who was getting a new house but a few weeks ago I saw Brad on a rerun of “Extreme Makeover Home Edition” singing this song!
“Mr Mom” by Lonestar http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLSsIXPzVO0. This is the funniest Dad song ever! It’s about a Dad who looses his job so until he finds a new one his wife goes back to work thus turning him into “Mr Mom”! He melts diapers in the Maytag dryer, rewinds Barney 18 times in one day and is always loosing the baby!
“All American Girl” by Carrie Underwood http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m36xv75MJ4U. This is about a Dad who really wanted to have a boy who could he could take fishing and who could be a football star but when the nurse brought in a little pink blanket all those dreams went down the toilet! Though now the little girl’s wrapped around his finger and he absolutely loves her! I don’t understand why she keeps changing costumes in the video but other than that it’s great! The song is too! I love the fiddle part at the very beginning!
“Just Like You” by George Canyon http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AeqrOkPIWJ8. This is a song about a kid who wants to be just like his father. He wants to travel the world like he does and he wants to go to work with him someday too. The Father however wants to be just like his son! He wants to ride bikes, build sandcastles and eat candy bars! I think it’s so cute how they both want to be like eachother!
“Hands Of A Working Man” by Johnny Reid http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCTZOSD8RrA&feature=fvwrel. This is Johnny’s tribute to his father and all other working men! It’s such a beautiful song and a great way to honor his Dad!
