Bluegrass Wedding Music has it

Bluegrass wedding music has its roots and origins in the country music influenced by Irish, Scottish, Welsh and West African traditional music. It was inspired by the music played by immigrants from the United Kingdom and Ireland. Bluegrass may not initially sound like a fit for a romantic wedding ceremony, but you can actually find some beautiful love songs. Your guests might really enjoy the honest feel bluegrass wedding music provides.

Bluegrass music is a sub-genre of country music. It often consists of vocals accompanied by acoustic stringed instruments, like guitar, mandolin, fiddle, banjo, and upright bass primarily. Bluegrass as a music style got its start uring the mid-1940s and was initially used as accompaniment at rural dances. It was also known as "buck dancing", "flat footing", or "clogging". Bluegrass wedding music follows this as well.

Bill Munroe is said to be the "father of Bluegrass". He composed from his heart to reach the audience’s soul. In 1938, Munroe formed his own band called The "Blue Grass Boys", named after his home state of Kentucky. That name inspired a whole new genre music.



For your wedding the best choice would be to hire a live bluegrass band for the best bluegrass wedding music. But if you can’t afford a live band then you could look for recorded music from these artists: Bill Munroe, Alison Krauss and Union Station, The Country Gentlemen, Emmylou Harris, Gillian Welch, The Dillards, Dolly Parton and many others.

In addition to your wedding ceremony, consider also the cocktail hour and especially for the wedding reception. Be prepared to hear several sub-genres as well. These include traditional bluegrass, progressive bluegrass, bluegrass gospel and as well as neo-traditional bluegrass.

Bluegrass wedding music songs bring joy and variety and their lyrics tend to be simple and beautiful. The songs are about normal things anyone can identify with such as: love, relationships, and surviving hard times.

Here are also some titles of bluegrass love songs by various artists, old and new, for you to consider:

Lyrics - bluegrass wedding music
Let Me Be Your Friend
You've given so much
All that you are you
Lifted me up
One things been certain you
Helped me in every way
Now what will i give right back to you?
Let me be your friend
When you're in trouble
And even when
There's nothing wrong
You can count on me
No matter whats going on
I'll be there for you
Until the very end

Oh when I'm in doubt
You always remind me
You'll be right here
So please let me do the
Same for you when you're in need
And let me wipe your fears away
And I know that you are from heaven
And I know u wont let me down
All I want's to be the same to you

When You Say Nothing at All - artist Alison Krauss

It's amazing how you can speak right to my heart
Without saying a word, you can light up the dark
Try as I may, I could never explain
What I hear when you don't say a thing

The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There's a truth in your eyes sayin' you'll never leave me
The touch of your hand says you'll catch me if ever I fall
You say it best when you say nothing at all

All day long I can hear people talking out loud
But when you hold me near, you drown out the crowd
Old Mr. Webster could never define
What's being said between your heart and mine

Love Chooses You - by Laurie A. Lewis

Love comes unbidden
Can't be forbidden
It takes you and shakes you
Right down to your shoes

It knows heartache and trial
But accepts no denial
You can't choose who you love
Love chooses you

In the wink of an eye
Love loses an arrow
We control it no more
Than the flight of the sparrow

The swell of the tide
Or the light of the moon
You can't choose who you love
Love chooses you

Tell me now if I'm wrong
Are you feelin' the same?
Are your feet on the ground?
Are you callin' my name?

Do you lie awake nights?
Please say you do
'Cause you can't choose who you love
Love chooses you

Love cuts like a torch
To a heart behind steel
And though you may hide it
Love knows how you feel

And though you may trespass
On the laws of the land
Your heart has to follow
When love takes your hand

And it seems we're two people
Within the same circle
It's drawn tighter and tighter
Till you're all that I see

I'm full and I'm empty
And you're pourin' through me
Like a warm rain fallin'
Through the leaves on a tree

Tell me now if I'm wrong
Are you feelin' the same?
Are your feet on the ground?
Are you callin' my name?

Do you lie awake nights?
Please say you do
'Cause you can't choose who you love
Love chooses you

No, you can't choose who you love
Love chooses you

Home-Made Love - Richard Mainegra

Homemade love just like mama used to make 
Homemade love that's what she used to say 
You can satisfy frustration and the same old one night stand 
But there ain't nothing quite as good as homemade love 
Homemade love all the cold and lonely nights 
Feel so good when your woman makes it right 
And she knows just how to please in each and every way 
There ain't nothing quite as good as homemade love 
Homemade love love home ain't nothing without love her sweet love 
And you know it won't be over she'll be there every day 
Homemade love take it with you when you go 
Homemade love let everybody know 
That your woman ain't to please as she's headed straight for you 
There ain't nothing quite as good as homemade love 
Homemade love love home ain't nothing...

I Love You Because - Howard Harlan

I love you because you understand dear
Every single thing I try to do
You're always there to lend a helping hand dear
I love you most of all because you're you

No matter what the world may say about me
I know your love will always see me through
I love you for the way you never doubt me
But most of all I love you 'cause you're you

I love you because my heart is lighter
Every time I'm walking by your side
I love you because the future's brighter
The door to happiness you opened wide

No matter what the world may say about me
I know your love will always see me through
I love you for a hundred thousand reasons
But most of all I love you 'cause you're you

The Wedding Song
He is now to be among you at the calling of your hearts
Rest assured this troubadour is acting on His part.
The union of your spirits, here, has caused Him to remain
For whenever two or more of you are gathered in His name
There is Love, there is Love.

Well a man shall leave his mother and a woman leave her home
They shall travel on to where the two shall be as one.
As it was in the beginning is now and til the end
Woman draws her life from man and gives it back again.
And there is Love, there is Love.

Well then what's to be the reason for becoming man and wife?
Is it love that brings you here or love that brings you life?
For if loving is the answer, then who's the giving for?
Do you believe in something that you've never seen before?
Oh there is Love, there is Love.

Oh the marriage of your spirits here has caused Him to remain
For whenever two or more of you are gathered in His name
There is Love, there is Love.

A Good Woman’s Love
I was a rover, on land and on sea
'til a good woman's love made a new man of me
Life had no meaning, it was so incomplete
'til a good woman's love put me back on my feet

Still a-roamin' I go home in the evening and she's waiting there
and I know that no matter what happens she'll always care
and when night falls and the moon shines above
I'm a man with a dream and a good woman's love

I was a rover, on land and on sea
'til a good woman's love made a new man of me
Life had no meaning, it was so incomplete
'til a good woman's love put me back on my feet

'Stead a-roamin' I go home in the evening and she's waiting there
and I know that no matter what happens she'll always care
and when night falls and the moon shines above
I'm a man with a dream and a good woman's love

Never Ending Love
by Delaney Bramlett

I've got a never-ending love for you
From now on that's all I want to do
From the first time we met I knew
I'd have a never-ending love for you

I've got a never-ending love for you
From now on that's all I want to do
From the first time we met I knew
I'd have a never-ending love for you

  (bridge)
After all this time of bein' alone
We can love one another, give for each other
From now on 
It's so good I can hardly stand it (full stop and banjo riff)
Never-ending love for you
From now on that's all I want to do
From the first time we met I knew
I'd sing my never-ending song of love for you

After all this time of bein' alone
We can love one another, live for each other
From now on 
It's so good I can hardly stand it (full stop and banjo riff)

Never-ending love for you
From now on that's al I want to do
From the first time we met I knew
I'd sing my never-ending song of love for you
I've got a never-ending love for you
