Musician Brings His Bride To Tears With Tyler Childers' 'Shake The Frost'

Coming up with your own vows for your wedding day is truly one of the most stressful parts of the process. How do you accurately portray all of the feelings you have for your loved one and make them feel special on the biggest day of your lives? For musician Dustin Smith, he decided to commemorate the moment by performing a song that was special to him and his bride Tara Ray. His performance of Tyler Childers' "Shake the Frost" was so beautiful, there's no way there was a dry eye in the audience.

As soon as Smith starts playing the first chords of the song, Ray is immediately brought to tears, as she recognizes the music. Michael Gene Wilson did an amazing job capturing the moment on the couple's big day. In the video, he adds in other special moments from the couple's wedding day interspersed with footage of Smith's performance. Note to all future grooms out there -- if you really want to impress your family and friends on your wedding day (especially your bride), consider performing a country music ballad. People will be talking about it for years...Dustin and Tara are clear evidence of that since they tied the knot back in 2019 and we're still obsessing over the performance.

"Shake The Frost" Lyrics

You remind me of a Sunday
Back home in ole Kentucky
With the church choirs just beltin' to the pines
And I love you like the mountains
Love's the way the mornin' opens
To a soft and bright greetin' from the sun
So if it'd make you stay
I wouldn't act so angry all the time
I wouldn't keep it all inside
And I'd let you know how much I loved you every day
So darlin', will you stay right here
And shake this frost off of my bones?
Well, I used to ride a Mustang
And I'd run that thing on high hopes
'Til they raised the price of dreams so high I couldn't pay
So I let that car just sit there
When I should've took you driving
With the windows down while the music played
So if it'd make you stay
I wouldn't act so angry all the time
I wouldn't keep it all inside
And I'd let you know how much I loved you every day
So darlin', will ya stay right here
And shake this frost off of my bones?
Darlin' will ya stay right here
And shake this frost off of my bones
