This Sunday is Father’s Day and while I think about my Dad everyday, memories of growing up come flooding back on this day.  My Dad has always been there for us, whether with his support, advice, kind words when we needed them most, and making us laugh.

I know that we all have our own special memories of our Dads, stepdads, grandpas, uncles, or other important men in our life, and as we get ready to celebrate them this Sunday, here’s a list of my ten favorite country songs about Dads.  A musical Father’s Day card if you will.

Brad Paisley, ‘He Didn’t Have to Be’, 1999

 

Kenny Chesney, ‘There Goes my Life’, 2004

 

Darius Rucker, ‘This Won’t Last for Long’, 2008

 

Conway Twitty, ‘That’s My Job’, 1987

 

Trace Adkins, ‘Just Fishin’, 2011

 

Tim McGraw, ‘My Little Girl’, 2014

 

Rodney Atkins, ‘Watching You’, 2006
