“God Gave Me You” – Blake Shelton
The meaning behind this one is pretty straightforward. The line “God gave me you for the ups and downs; God gave me you for the days of doubt” is perfect for telling your loved one you’ll be there though the good times and bad.
“Here” – Rascal Flatts
This one is all about the times that bring a person right to where they are. He or she would go back and experience all the broken hearts again if it meant it would lead them back to you: their spouse.
“Then” – Brad Paisley
Brad Paisley wrote this one especially for his wife. The line “I thought I loved you then” evokes how much your love has grown over the years and how strongly you feel for one another.
“You” – Chris Young
This one is all about how a man feels about his girl. “I thought I knew what love was but I didn’t have a clue.” This line really puts into words how much this once-in-a-lifetime love has changed his whole perspective on what love is. And this is a great upbeat tune to dance to!
“You’re Everything” – Keith Urban
I bet Nicole Kidman melts when she hears this one. (How could you not?). The title of the song really says it all: I want to be your everything.
“Love Story” – Taylor Swift
This song really evokes a Romeo and Juliet type of love. A classic love story filled with romance and escaping into a great love with just the two of you.
“You Had Me From Hello” – Kenny Chesney
The moment that you two looked into each other’s eyes, you knew it was going to be forever. You both have had your heart stolen and were meant to be together from the beginning.
