Father’s Day is this Sunday and country music is full of great dads! Here is our list, in no particular order, of the Top 20 Dads in country music. If you don’t see your favorite country dad on this list, let us know by leaving a comment below. You can check out our picks for the Top 10 Most Beautiful Moms in Country Music  while you’re at it!
Brad Paisley  has got to be one cool dad. Not only can he sing and play guitar, he’s also pretty good at animation and helps create the videos that play during his shows. His sons, Huck and Jasper, with wife Kimberly Williams-Paisley, will likely pick up some tips on pranks from their mastermind father, which could make things lively in the Paisley household in years to come.
Keith Urban’s  girls, Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret, are always at the forefront of Keith’s mind, along with wife Nicole Kidman. Keith tries to arrange his tours so he doesn’t have to spend more than a few days away from his girls. It seems like Sunday is following in dad’s footsteps, as Keith told Ellen DeGeneres  she sings “all the time” and should she be passionate about singing when she’s older, he wouldn’t hesitate to let her pursue it.
Luke Bryan  is a country man with two country little boys. Luke’s oldest son Bo seems to have picked up some of dad’s dance moves, making appearances onstage to shake it for the crowd on several occasions, many of which have found their way on to YouTube. Luke’s youngest son, Tatum, 2, is sure to follow in big brother’s footsteps.
Josh Turner  is a family man to the core. He loads up his wife, Jennifer, who also plays keyboard in his band, and his three boys – Hampton, Colby and Marion – and takes them out on the road rather than miss time with them. Life on a bus with three young boys must be quite the adventure.
Eric Church  had a song about two pink lines and now, he and wife Katherine have a son, Boone. Proud papa Eric posted this photo  of Boone napping in dad’s guitar case. We wonder if the tyke will soon be sporting dad’s signature aviators!
Tim McGraw  has become as successful on the big screen as he is on the radio, but his main job is father to his three girls with Faith Hill  – Grace, Audrey and Maggie. The girls often accompany Tim and Faith on the road and Tim has coached their softball and basketball teams in the past, despite his demanding career.
George Strait’s son Bubba takes after his dad. He competes in roping events and is the co-writer on his dad’s latest single, “Here For A Good Time.” In 1986, George and wife Norma suffered a parent’s worst nightmare when their daughter, Jenifer, was killed in a car accident. They set up a foundation in her memory which gives to children’s charities in the San Antonio, Texas area.
Dierks Bentley  is a guy’s guy, but it’s his two little girls, Evalyn and Jordan, who truly rule the roost. When Jordan was born, Dierks took to Twitter to announce her birth, joking she had chosen to enter the world to Mumford & Sons “Awake My Soul.” And we can’t forget Dierks’ faithful dog companions, Jake and George, who have been known to attend red carpet events (and the GAC studio!) with their ‘dad.’
Trace Adkins  may be a tough guy, but with five daughters and a wife, the Adkins women rule the roost at home! Trace and wife Rhonda are the proud parents of Trinity, Mackenzie and Brianna, and Trace also has two older daughters, Tarah and Sarah.
Jason Aldean  likes to throw his kind of party onstage, but at home, the party belongs to his two girls, Keeley and Kendyl. Jason told The Boot  he takes the songs he records home to play for his wife, Jessica, and his girls, as they have a knack for picking out which ones will be a hit.
Toby Keith  is known for both his patriotic and beer-drinking songs, but at home, he’s dad to his three kids, daughters Shelley and Krystal and son Stelen. He’s also grandpa to a grandson and a granddaughter! Krystal is following in her father’s musical footsteps and has been known to join Toby onstage.
Craig Morgan  balances his busy career with being the father of four, daughter Alexandra and three sons, Kyle, Jerry and Wyatt. Craig recently walked his daughter down the aisle.  “Watched my baby girl get married yesterday, today my heart is warm but empty May God bless them,” he tweeted the day after the May 19 wedding.
Justin Moore  is surrounded by women, both at his shows and at home. He and wife Kate are proud parents to Ella Kole, 2, and Kennedy Faye, who was born in November. Kate and the girls appear with Justin in his latest video, “Till My Last Day.”
Alan Jackson  has three daughters, Mattie, Ali and Dani, with wife Denise and has no problem giving the girls his opinion on the boys who try to date one of his girls. “I told my daughters I was a nice boy,” he told Taste of Country.  “I was a good kid, and I know what I was trying to do when I went out on a date. I don’t care how nice they are! Boys are boys.”
The Rascal Flatts  brood just keeps growing! Gary LeVox was the first member to become a dad. He has two daughters, Brittany and Brooklyn, with wife Tara. Joe Don Rooney became a proud father when wife Tiffany Fallon gave birth to their son Jagger in 2008 and the couple welcomed daughter Raquel Blue in 2010. Jay DeMarcus and wife Allison have one-year-old Maddie and are expecting their second child, a son, this summer.
Joe Nichols  is celebrating his first Father’s Day! He and wife Heather welcomed daughter Dylan River in April after suffering five miscarriages. The couple recently appeared on The View  to share their story in hopes of encouraging others who may be going through similar circumstances.
Darius Rucker’s  three kids – Carol, Danielle and Jack – don’t pay much attention to their father’s celebrity status but Darius told The Boot they have figured out one perk of having a famous dad. “My kids know that I can get them in to meet people, and trust me, I’ve done the Justin Bieber concerts,” he said. “They know that part of it!”
Little Big Town’s  Jimi Westbrook and Phillip Sweet tour the country with their kids in tow. Jimi and wife and fellow LBT member Karen Fairchild have two-year-old Elijah while Phillip and his wife are parents to three-year-old Penelopi. Band member Kimberly Schlapman’s young daughter, Daisy Pearl, also travels with the band.
Big & Rich  like to throw a party onstage, but at home, the two men are devoted fathers to a brood of boys. Big Kenny and wife Christiev are parents to Lincoln and Dakota, while John Rich and wife Joan are proud parents to Cash and baby Colt, who was born September 29 last year. “He’s a real “Son of a Gun!,” John tweeted after Colt’s birth. “VERY proud!!”
Josh Kelley  and wife Katherine Heigl expanded their family in April by adopting Adalaide Marie Hope. Adalaide joins big sister Naleigh Moon, 3. The proud papa often tweets  photos of his girls.
