Kristian Bush Releases “Say Yes to the Dress” Theme


Kristian Bush has written, recorded, and released the song “Forever Now (Say Yes),” which is the new theme for TLC’s hit series, Say Yes to the Dress. Coming up later in the season, Bush will make a cameo appearance to help his guitar tech’s fiancée, classic country girl Evyn, find the perfect dress. Bush’s first trip to Kleinfeld Bridal (where the show is set) and an inside look at the magic of wedding dress shopping inspired him to write the song. Bush is currently working on his first album for BBR Music Group’s Wheelhouse Records.
