For many of us music moms, the men in our lives have provided immeasurable support and inspiration. From our own fathers to the husbands who love and care for our kids, the influence of these giants is felt and appreciated every day of the year.
But with Father’s Day only a few days away, right now is as good a time as ever to thank them. And how does a music mom thank the fathers of the world? By sharing songs that were written in honor of dads, of course!
Countless musicians from all genres have paid tribute to their fathers through song, but these 9 tunes pack an emotional punch like no other. They truly stand head and shoulders above the rest – just like every child’s daddy does in their eyes.
Happy Father’s Day to all you men who are, and always will be, our heroes!
