WINSTED, Conn. — A Connecticut groom planned a big surprise for his wife on their wedding day that not only touched the hearts of their guests but grabbed the attention of a country music star.

More than a year ago, Andrew Meadows’s wife Kelly lost her mother.

“Her father has taken it very hard as well as the rest of the family,” Andrew Meadows told WFSB.

At the couple’s wedding reception last Friday, Kelly stepped onto the dance floor for her father-daughter dance and Andrew stepped up to the microphone.

He performed the song “Your Daddy’s Boots” by Dustin Lynch.

“I guess I just wanted him to really know how much he is loved and that he’s always been a good father to his children,” Andrew told WFSB.

The emotional video was posted on YouTube and has been viewed more than 35,000 times.

It even garnered the attention of Dustin Lynch on Facebook.

“Hey Andrew – awesome job, congrats,” Lynch posted on his Facebook page.
