1. Steve Wariner- Holes In The Floor Of Heaven
This powerful country song about Heaven can be found on Steve Wariner’s 1988 album Burnin’ the Roadhouse Down. “Holes in the Floor of Heaven” sees the narrator recalling the deaths of family members, including his wife and grandmother. At the end of the song it’s revealed that the man’s wife died due to pregnancy complications, and as the man and his daughter stand on her wedding day, it begins to rain- “And there’s holes in the floor of heaven / and her tears are pouring down / that’s how you know she’s watching / wishing she could be here now.”
