The Best Country Line Dance Songs

Link copied

Before there was the Cupid Shuffle and the Cha Cha Slide, the country-western line dances such as Texas Two-Step and the Watermelon Crawl would dominate the dance floor.

This style of dance, which is once again surging in popularity, calls for people of all ages to come together as a group and move their feet in sync to the beat of their favourite songs in a repeated sequence of steps. No previous dance training is required to take part in these choreographed line dances, which eliminates the pressure of having to bring out the impressive freestyle moves on the dance floor.

Billy Ray Cyrus may have launched the modern line dance craze of the early 90s with his claim to fame, ‘Achy Breaky Heart’, but many artists since then have followed suit, allowing the repetitive step sequences to carry on in dance halls and saloons worldwide.

So grab your dancin’ boots, call up a few friends and prepare for a hoedown, because we've compiled a list of 15 of our favorite country songs to line dance to.


Sony | 2013

Chris Young - Aw Naw

Line dancing can often lead to late nights with friends and that’s just the kind of experience Chris Young’s 'Aw Naw' describes. Once this country-rock song dropped, it didn’t take long for a line dance to emerge alongside it. Right from the start with a kick of the boot, this choreography can liven up any party.


Capitol Records Nashville | 2011

Luke Bryan - Country Girl (Shake It For Me)

It makes sense that country music superstar Luke Bryan - who’s known for shaking his hips whenever he’s on stage - would produce a song with the perfect tempo to dance along to. When this track comes on, it’s almost like everyone on the dance floor instinctively embraces Bryan’s spectacular hip-swinging talent.


Universal | 2008

Toby Keith - Should've Been A Cowboy

The fast-paced line dance for Toby Keith’s 'Should’ve Been A Cowboy' could be considered one of the more challenging ones on the list, but nothing that can’t be picked up with a little practice. The difficulty comes with the addition of an optional partner and learning how to move around the room as a pair.


MCA Records | 1994

Tracy Byrd - Watermelon Crawl

A night at the local saloon wouldn’t be complete without a dance to Tracy Byrd’s 'Watermelon Crawl'. In order to follow along with this line dance, the most important choreography to know is the Charleston, the grapevine, the pivot and a bit of heel/toe steps. Once those moves are established, this dance is a breeze.


Atlantic | 2015

Hunter Hayes - I Want Crazy

Paired with Hunter Hayes’ 'I Want Crazy', this 48-count, 2-wall dance has a few variations to it, as most line dances do. The most popular version is at the intermediate to advanced level with steps that tend to get a bit confusing because of the frequent changing of walls in the choreography.


1203 Entertainment | 2010

Mikel Knight - Whiskey Drinkin'

This boot-stomping line dance, usually known as "The Outlaw", fits the vibe of Mikel Knight’s explicit, rap country song, 'Whiskey Drinkin''. Get ready to break a sweat because this choreography will have you moving up, down and side to side to this upbeat song.


Mercury Records | 1992

Billy Ray Cyrus - Achy Breaky Heart

Without a doubt, one of the main songs to make both Billy Ray Cyrus and line dancing popular needed to be included in the top 10. With its simple two-chord structure and perfectly paced tempo, Cyrus’ iconic 'Achy Breaky Heart' will most definitely be played anywhere that line dancing takes place.


Warner Music Nashville | 2011

Big and Rich - Fake ID

Upon seeing this famous line dance featured in the movie Footloose, it’s only a matter of time before the need to learn the steps and start dancing along with the cast takes over. Something about the movements paired with this Big and Rich country rock ‘n’ roll song just puts you in a great mood.


BBR | 2019

Blanco Brown - The Git Up

A relatively new dance added to the mix comes from Blanco Brown’s 'The Git Up'. According to Brown, this line dance consists of four easy steps: the cowboy boogie, the hoedown, the butterfly and the two-step. Whether in a saloon or a concert, the crowd will be ready to dance along to this song.


Capitol Nashville | 2013

Darius Rucker - Wagon Wheel

With this classic country tune, country music fans often find it difficult to resist the urge to sing and dance along to Darius Rucker’s recording of 'Wagon Wheel', making it a great candidate for a line dancing song. With its beginner level choreography, the 'Wagon Wheel' line dance is the perfect introduction to this style of dance.


Arista | 1991

Brooks and Dunn - Boot Scootin’ Boogie

Anyone who has have ever participated in - or even just witnessed - line dancing before knows that Brooks and Dunn’s 'Boot Scootin’ Boogie' is almost always included in the DJ’s setlist. This song has, rightfully so, been labelled as one of the prime line dancing songs because anyone - even beginners - can pick it up.


Muunshine Muusic | 1995

Rednex - Cotton Eye Joe

As soon as the opening lyrics, “If it hadn’t been for cotton-eye Joe,” play through the DJ’s speakers, dance floors everywhere quickly fill up with party-goers ready to take part in one of the most entrancing line dances. Although the steps are simple, they can easily be made more difficult with a few extra hops and turns.


Uni Records | 1988

Steve Earle - Copperhead Road

Steve Earle’s 'Copperhead Road' was also a driving force of the line dance craze in the 90s. The song is paired with the signature choreography that may include some verbal cues from the dancers, which correlate with the steps. This dance is 20 counts of pure fun that anyone to enjoy.


UMG Recordings | 1997

Shania Twain - Man I Feel Like A Woman

Growing up listening to this Shania Twain staple on a daily basis has assigned it a special place in my heart. This fairly simple line dance with hip-swinging movements offers a feeling of empowerment with every step. Plus, it’s pretty safe to assume that along with line dancing, everyone will also be singing along.


Broken Bow | 2005

Jason Aldean - Hicktown

Caution: this line dance contains high kicks, heavy stomping and fast footwork. Jason Aldean's 'Hicktown' might just be the best song for showing off your dance moves in a saloon. It takes a good amount of concentration to get the hang of it, but the end result will be worth it, making it the top choice on our list.

Square dance (square dance)

Square dance (square dance, translated as “square dance”) is a folk dance that originated in the USA. The dance figures adopted in square dance are borrowed from traditional folk dances brought to the United States by emigrants from Europe. Among these dances are morris, English country dance and square dance. Square dance is danced all over the world. It first appeared in Russia in 2003.

The name of the dance - square dance - is explained by the fact that the initial position of the dancers is always a square. Each square is formed by four pairs facing each other. The peculiarity of the dance is that the sequence of figures is not known in advance. They are pronounced or sung to the music by the so-called caller (from the English call - “call out, call”). Koller directs the dance, but does not participate in it himself.

The list of figures is standardized and the same in all square dance clubs. English names are used to designate the figures. This allows dancers from all over the world to participate in international festivals without experiencing "translation difficulties".

Varieties of square dance

Square dance can be divided into two main directions:

  • Traditional square dance dance." This modern form of square dance is danced all over the world.

In addition, in many states of America, the western square dance has the official status of a folk dance.

Whereas in traditional square dance all the dance moves are predetermined and predictable, the sequence of figures in western square dance develops quite spontaneously. It depends only on the caller which figure will be next in the dance. Sometimes ready-made combinations of figures are used, sometimes the decision is made spontaneously by the caller.

In addition, the two directions of square dance differ in musical design: traditional square dance mainly dances to country music, western square dance accepts music of all styles, from rock and pop music to processed classical melodies, from electronics to romances.

Dance music

Traditionally, square dance has been danced to country music, Irish jigs and reels, and a variety of folk music. It was usually performed by a small orchestra, including violin, guitar, banjo and double bass. Now all styles are accepted on the dance floor - from pop music to rap. Live music has become a rarity, although there is still live vocals, when the caller not only calls the figures, but also sings the words of the song.

An important limitation is the composition speed. The optimal speed value is 120-128 bpm. At this speed, the dancers take one step per beat.

Regular activities do not require the wearing of special costumes. But many dancers enjoy dressing up for occasions every dance night. This helps create a more relaxed and fun atmosphere. Over the years, a certain dress code has developed in the square dance. The origin of the style in clothing is the same as that of music - it is country style, or folk style. For men, these are long-sleeved shirts, sometimes cowboy hats and boots. Women have bright dresses with wide skirts, under which a multi-layered petticoat (crinoline, petticoat) is often put on.

Based on Wikipedia

Modern square dance is a booming club industry. It is simple, easy to learn, does not require any special talents, democratic in terms of physique and physical training of performers. Special rooms, special clothes and shoes are also not required. Although it is still considered good form among performers of one group to choose a harmonious country-style outfit for performances.
