Thanks to his heartfelt lyrics and soul-stirring melodies, Alan Jackson’s songs have become a wedding staple for many, whether they’re a big country music fan or not! What’s more, his discography spans so many albums, so you should be able to always find a song that fits your wedding ceremony. 

How do I choose the right Alan Jackson song for my wedding?

It’s all up to your preferences of course, but we recommend starting with songs that you already know and love.

Dos And Don'ts When Picking Alan Jackson Wedding Songs



  • Consider Your Guests: While Alan Jackson is a country superstar, not all of your guests may know him all that much. As such, make sure to include a list of songs (even non-Alan Jackson ones) to the wedding playlist to ensure there’s something for everyone.


  • Mind the Lyrics: While Alan Jackson is definitely not known for writing vulgar lyrics, it’s still good to pay attention to the lyrics of each song to make sure they align with the overall mood and sentiment you want to convey. Some songs may have hidden meanings or messages that may not be suitable for a wedding.


  • Test the Volume: Check the volume levels of the songs in your playlist. You want the music to be audible, but not so loud that it hinders conversation. Of course, you also don’t want it going super loud that everybody becomes deaf! 



  • Overload on Slow Songs: While slow Alan Jackson wedding songs are essential for romantic moments, avoid overloading the playlist with too many. Balance slow and upbeat songs to keep the energy flowing throughout the event.

  • Disregard the Venue: Consider the acoustics and atmosphere of your venue. Some songs may sound better in certain spaces, so choose songs that complement the surroundings. Additionally, some venues may even have noise restrictions, so better keep this in mind when planning your wedding.
  • Forget to Communicate with your wedding DJ: Finally, make sure you communicate your preferences and provide a do-not-play list to your wedding DJ, as well as any specific song cues or transitions that you want to have. This ensures that the music aligns with the flow of the program.

The #1 problem clients face...

As I’m sure you’re aware, we live in a world where people fear commitment. People leave all of their options open, because they’re afraid they might end up loosing out on a future opportunity that might be superior to what is right in front of them.

Yet this way of thinking is wrong… But why?

Because by failure to commit to something, the best options available become unavailable. What we thought was a sure thing, ends up becoming a missed opportunity. Through our deliberate action of inaction, we’re soon presented with second-tier options. Options that you wish you could’ve avoided in the first place. But you’ve already committed to the idea of hiring a DJ, so you end up going through with it anyway, and you choose whoever is available because you don’t want to completely miss out. But you know in your heart it didn’t feel like the right choice. And when the money is spent, and the performance is over, you’re disappointed. And you tell yourself: never again. Yet just like a teenager who claims to never drink again after binge drinking the night before, we end up in a cycle of never committing, and always being stuck with bad alternatives. Deep down inside, we’re unhappy. And we’re left with regret.

Amazing opportunities don't last long.

DJing.ca only performs at 125 corporate events per year,  and performs in front of companies such as McLaren, FlyOver Canada, and ActiveState. As we get more referrals each year, the number of calls & emails continues to grow. 

And with good reason.

Having a 100% satisfaction rate, we keep getting referrals. That’s what happens when you are Vancouver’s best DJs.

I know a lot of other people claim that, but here’s the facts:

We spent an entire year, or 4,000+ hours (yes, we’re work-a-holics) searching through 350 DJs, only to find the top 15 that met our expectations based on personality, experience, and professionalism. If any DJ doesn’t receive a 5/5 star rating from clients (just like yourself), they do not meet the requirements of our contract and can no longer work with us.

And here’s the kicker…

To date we haven’t had to remove anyone.

If you want your event to be truly amazing, don’t hesitate. Fill out the form, we’re here to help. Let’s work together to make your vision come to life.
