10 UNIQUE FATHER DAUGHTER DANCE SONGS

#1 - “Butterfly Kisses” by Bob Carlyle

While maybe not the most unique father daughter dance song out there, number one on my list must go out to “Butterfly Kisses” by Bob Carlisle.

This song tells the story of a daughter growing up right in front of the father’s eyes, and even talks about her wedding day. I don’t think a more perfect father daughter dance song exists!
