Whether you’re a fan of Bachelor Nation or not, everyone knows about the shows The Bachelor and The Bachelorette on ABC.  Although we can’t rely on the same ending each season, we can rely on great musical performances throughout seasons of the series. Check out our list of all the country artists that have made an appearance on the hit television franchise!

1. Chris Lane
Country music entertainer, Chris Young has quite the connection to the franchise. He recently proposed to former Bachelor contestant Lauren Bushnell with a heartfelt love song, but he has also performed on Season 21 of The Bachelor Back in 2017, Lane sang his heartwarming tune “For Her,” on stage, as Nick Viall and his date danced and sang along to the hit. The singer definitely added some romance to the date! See for yourself below.


2. Brett Young
On the most recent season of The Bachelor, country heartthrob, Brett Young serenaded Colton Underwood and Caelynn on their magical date. The performance took place in Colorado at the stunning Red Rocks Amphitheater. Young sang his beautiful song, “Here Tonight,” while the couple slow danced under the stars in the empty venue. Check out the full performance below in a deleted scene from the episode.


3. Tenille Arts
Country music continued to take precedent throughout Colton’s season of The Bachelor. During a date with Elyse, the duo were treated to an epic performance by country newcomer, Tenille Arts. Arts is an incredibly talented vocalist, who performed an original song entitled, “I Hate This” for the couple on stage at a stunning theatre in Los Angeles. This marked her second appearance on the show, as she made her national television debut on The Bachelor in the beginning of 2018, only to come back a year later to do it again. Check out her most recent stint on the popular show below.


4. Dolly Parton
Way back, during season 8 of The Bachelorette, country royalty, Dolly Parton performed on the show. Parton sang “Love Will Find A Way,” a song she wrote specifically for the show and for Emily Maynard and Arie Luyendyk’s date. Talk about a spectacular moment in both their lives; despite the fact that they don’t end up together! Watch the beautiful moments below.


Since Arie didn’t end up with Emily, he was given a chance to be The Bachelor. On his season, he took his date, Sienne to a LANCO concert. LANCO sang their smash hit, “The Greatest Love Story” for the pair. The couple looked smitten in this moment, but how could they not! See for yourself below.


6. Granger Smith
On Becca’s season of The Bachelorette, she and her now fiance, Garrett were serenaded by singer-songwriter Granger Smith. The pair attended his show together and were escorted to center stage to dance and sing along. The silly couple were clearly fans of the performer! Listen to Smith sing his hit, “Happens Like That” below.


7. Russell Dickerson
One of our favorite artists, Russell Dickerson also made an appearance on the show. The entertainer sang his epic love song, “Yours” on Rachel Lindsay’s season of The Bachelorette. As always, Dickerson brought the energy and made the performance a special one for the couple. Of course, he went the extra miles shouting out the duo as they danced and sang along to the hit track.
