Want to incorporate a little Americana into your 4th of July wedding playlist without playing Sousa marches or Jimmi Hendrix’s rendition of the Star Spangled Banner (although, both could be cool in their own right)? Why not check out these very American choices, they’re sure to keep the dance floor full and the patriotic spirit high!
Songs to Rock Your 4th of July Wedding
American Girl – Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
A crowd pleaser that is sure to get all of your guests up and dancing. You might event want to consider this as your entrance song for your walk down the aisle! Not a Tom Petty fan (of course I don’t know why you wouldn’t be) then check out the Goo Goo Dolls cover.
Born in the USA – Bruce Springsteen
With its strong political sentiments and stirring sense of patriotism, this song by the Boss will set the tone for your 4th of July wedding festivities.

If you’re not crazy about Ms. Wilde’s original version try checking out One Direction, Foo Fighters or The Muffs’ covers of this 80’s classic.
Party in the U.S.A – Miley Cyrus
Who can resist putting their hands up, nodding their heads and moving their hips to this tune? And hey, it’s your wedding day; shouldn’t it be a party in the USA? YES!
American Pie – Don McLean
A classic that is sure to get even those not comfortable with dancing singing at their tables “I dig those rhythm and blues”!
