I need help finding some good country songs that would be appropriate at funeral

Recommended Posts

My friend's 42-year-old husband died in a tragic accident a few days ago.   She's asked me to help pick some music for the funeral.    He was a good country boy (loved cattle, etc.).    

 

 

Any suggestions?    

 

I know he liked Rascal Flatts.

Go to Google and type this:

 

"country music" funeral

 

You will pull up sufficient hits to make good choices. There are articles and message posts about this specifically.

 

I'm sorry your friend is suffering so bad a loss.

There are some great older country versions of The Old Rugged Cross that I thought were nice at a funeral we recently attended.

I had the words to "When I get to where I'm going" put on the funeral cards at my dad's funeral.  My son requested that song many years ago to be played at his funeral some day.

 

Holes in the floor of Heaven is another favorite

If the funeral is at a house a worship, be sure to check with the officiant. They may have guidelines or even an approved song list. I've known families who were left scrambling at the last minute because the music wasn't coordinated with the church.

There are a lot of great  country songs that would work for a funeral. 

 

Will the Circle Be Unbroken - lots of versions and it works for group singing too

 

Take Me Home, Country Roads - lots of versions of this as well

 

I'll Fly Away - I like the version by Gillian Welch and David Rawlings but it might be too up-beat

 

I'll Be There In the Morning - Townes van Zandt - maybe not obvious for a funeral but I think it could work

You're tremendous!    I'm going to listen to all of these suggestions!   

 

 

Thanks so much!

 

Make sure you have a box of tissues before you tackle that playlist.
