No. 36: Steve Wariner, ‘Holes in the Floor of Heaven’ – Top 100 Country Songs
Along with Vince Gill‘s ‘Go Rest High on That Mountain’ (also included on the Top 100 Country Songs list), Steve Wariner’s ‘Holes in the Floor of Heaven’ is the most popular choice for a country song at funerals. It’s a breathtakingly beautiful lyric which gives hope to anyone missing a loved one or friend.
Perhaps more than any genre, country music fans love a song that can make them cry. This 1998 hit from a guitar master will make you weep — especially if you’ve just buried someone close to you. That’s a warning if you’re thinking about watching the video.
