I feel like everyone has a fantasy of having a song written about them. And my husband, Rob, wrote one for me as a surprise for our wedding in August of 2021. After the ceremony we walked over to the grassy dance floor. I thought the band was going to play a cover song by Elvis or something, but instead it was an original song that Rob had written and recorded for me down in Nashville.
“New Last Name” was co-written with Bill Whyte and recorded by Smith Curry and his amazing session musicians in Nashville. It’s the most beautiful song I’ve ever heard. And now everyone in the world can hear it too! If anyone is getting married, this would be a perfect “first dance” song. (Yes, I will share!)
Lyrics: “I raise my glass to you my love / Here’s to have and to hold for the rest of our days / I raise my glass to you my love / I can’t wait to be your new last name”
You can stream “New Last Name” on ALL streaming platforms (or scroll down to the bottom to hear it!) In the meantime, here’s some behind-the-scenes photos and video from our wedding!
