The Best Thing We Ever Did – Shannon Slaughter / Heather Slaughter

Shannon – Guitar, Lead, and Harmony Vocal / Heather – Lead and Harmony Vocal / Ron I. – mandolin / Randy – Reso Guitar / Tracy – Bass / Ron S. – Fiddle

Heather and I were blessed on August 29, 2013 with a precious little daughter, Rae Carroll. We said this line to each other several times before finally one of us said, “Let’s write this!” So we did! She has changed our whole perspective and outlook on life and you can hear her at the end of this song; which really is a history of how Heather and I met. Giving our lives to God and being blessed with her are truly the best things we have ever done. For obvious reasons, it’s our favorite song on the whole record!

Verse 1
The Best thing I ever did was dialing your number one more time
And I’m so glad you came down from Caroline
We found love between the lines
Of the songs we sang til the morning brought the sun
Living in a Dream hoping Monday wouldn’t come
Two hearts in rhythm as one


Verse 2
The Best thing I ever did was bring her into my life
And I’m so glad you’re her mother and my wife
Everything is finally right
That perfect little smile and the sweetest voice I’ve heard
She makes my day without saying a word
So much more than we deserve


We know who we are and we know what we need
In his loving will to live
Giving our lives to him / that’s the best thing we ever did
