Trisha Yearwood is, hands down, my favorite country singer of all time next to Reba and Shania Twain. (I’m definetly a 90’s country girl aren’t I?) This was one of the first songs I ever heard of hers that I can recall. I was only 10 and someone told the Girl Scout leader to turn it up. It was awesome.

However, I have an interesting little story behind why I like this song.

At the University of Houston – where I got my Bachelors in Broadcast Journalism. I worked at the Daily Cougar and covered student groups. I found a student group to cover called Intervarsity Christian Fellowship, who were having a “welcome back to school” outreach event. I was already a Christian that was in the Baptist Student Ministry at the time, therefore, due to conflict of interest, I couldn’t cover any of their events. Intervarsity, however, I requested to cover their event and did so.

So I covered the event and there was this girl named Nicole that spoke. She told her story of faith and all that jazz.

A few weeks passed and I kinda felt like God was leading me away from the BSM. I was looking for a new accountability group – one away from my parents church. So I went to the Intervarsity Christian Fellowship Women’s Bible Study and Nicole was there. Nicole was there and we became fast friends. We met each week and talked about basically any and everything. We even worked out together at the Rec center once – she broadcasted to everyone who I liked at the time.

Anyways, so a year or so later, she got married to her college sweetheart – a fellow engineering major like herself. (even though she decided to become a campus minister) I always thought this song was very fitting for her and her husband. Nicole likes country music and I think it fits her well.

Only deal is I would’ve had to change the names of the 2 characters in the song to fit her and her husband, the name “Tastee Freeze” (because we have a Dairy Queen, not a Tastee Freeze), and some of the aspects of how he proposed, the fact that they weren’t childhood sweethearts but college sweethearts, etc. I think it would have made a great wedding gift to them.

But it never happened.

Nicole and I are still friends to this day. She moved up to Dallas for her and her husband’s job shortly after she got married in 2010. However, we do try to get together every now and then when she comes to Houston.
