"Lost in This Moment" is a song written by John Rich, Keith Anderson and Rodney Clawson, and recorded by American country music duo Big & Rich. It was released in February 2007 as the first single from their album Between Raising Hell and Amazing Grace. The single became their first and only Number One hit on the Billboard country charts in mid-2007. Prior to its release, the duo's highest-charting single was "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)", which reached #11.
This song is sung from the perspective of a groom at his wedding. In the first verse, the bride walks down the aisle, where the groom and the preacher await. In the second verse, the couple exchange their vows, and the preacher pronounces the couple man and wife.
The video features Big & Rich, in tuxedos, singing the song, backed by their road band. On a projection screen behind them, various clips from various time periods of couples at their weddings are shown. The music video was directed by Deaton-Flanigen.
