In honor of Father’s Day on June 19, the folks at the NASH offices in Nashville narrowed down our two favorite country songs about fathers to Alan Jackson’s “Drive (For Daddy Gene)” and George Strait’s “Love Without End, Amen.” We know, we know, there are plenty of other great songs about fathers, including Conway Twitty’s “That’s My Job,” Reba McEntire’s “The Greatest Man I Never Knew” and Ricky Van Shelton’s “Keep It Between the Lines,” but for the sake of this argument, it’s George vs. Alan.
Give each song a listen, then cast your vote to help us decide.
