Groom Brings His Bride To Tears Singing Tyler Childers’ “Shake The Frost” During The Vows

Tyler Childers wedding vows
Michael Gene Wilson

THAT’S how you do some vows.

I got married in February of 2020, which probably isn’t the most common time to do it, but I was lucky enough to get the ceremony and the honeymoon in right before COVID happened and the whole world went to hell in a handbasket. But I’ll tell you what… my vows were NOTHING like this.

Sure, I wrote them half an hour before the ceremony while I guzzled down some George Strait Código tequila and little Johnnie Walker Blue Label with my groomsmen, but either way, it wouldn’t have came out like this no matter how hard I worked. I DID however use Tyler Childers “All Your’n” as my wedding song.

Anyways, enough about me, on to the main event right here.

A few years back, musician Dustin Smith said “I do” to his wife Tara Ray, and rather than just saying his vows like the rest of us schmucks (myself included), he did what he does best and got out the ol’ guitar to perform his vows in song. And when it comes to finding the words to express how you feel, who really does it better than the great Tyler Childers? Nobody, that’s who. I know that, you know that, and Dustin knows that.

Performing “Shake The Frost,” Dustin’s vows brought his bride to tears, and I can only imagine there weren’t too many dry eyes in the room after that. And best of all, he crushed it. I mean, sure it still could’ve been “cute” if he couldn’t sing a note, but Dustin here CAN sing a note, more than just a note.. he killed it. Couple it with some great cinematography and you have a wedding video you might actually want to watch again. And this is just for free, but for 90% of you wedding-planning couples out there, don’t go crazy on the video… unless you’re gonna do something like this, just get a moron with a camera for as cheap as possible. Spend on the pictures, don’t spend on the video. It’s nice to have, but you’ll never watch it… thank me later.

Congrats to Dustin and Tara.

And how about a young Tyler doin’ it as well.
