R&R Street Talk Editor Kevin Carter is not exactly known for his sentimental and softer side, so you know a wedding story is indeed a grabber when he reports it:
Citadel Country WOKQ/Portsmouth, NH, was involved in a benefit concert this past Saturday to raise funds to support “a local park” with a concert starring Big Machine artist Dusty Drake.
Mark Ericson, ("Four-Time CMA Nominee, ACMNominee, Marconi Nominee, Wedding Crasher") explains:
“Dusty was about five minutes away from wrapping up his set with his wedding anthem, ‘Say Yes,’ when my girlfriend noticed a bride over in the garden — she has radar for these things. Needless to say, I crashed this small wedding of about 10 people, interrupted Dusty’s set, dragged the bride and groom up on stage, asked them who they were, then turned Dusty loose on them. Dusty sang ‘Say Yes’ to them, incorporating the couple’s names into the song while they danced on stage infront of about 2,000 people, who gave them a standing ovation. While all this was going on, their photographer came up and informed me that they reallywere hoping for the world’s smallest wedding ceremony....‘Sorry’ was the best I could do — but I did it in my radio voice.”
