Chris Smith has quickly made a name for himself as a musician and songwriter, known for his covers of popular songs on YouTube. According to his Facebook, Smith is also the founder of the #52Songs52Weeks Songwriting Challenge, and as part of the challenge released a new, original song every Monday of 2015. 

In addition to his work as a singer and songwriter, Smith is currently serving our country as a Captain in the Army Reserves. Even with all of his military duties, Smith has always found time to work on his music.

Smith has covered songs of all genres, but seems to have a real fondness for country, with his country covers being some of his most-viewed videos. One such video is his 2012 cover of Blake Shelton's "God Gave Me You," which has a special meaning behind it, since Smith was preparing to leave for deployment at the time he recorded the video.

With his deployment approaching, Smith dedicated the romantic tune to his wife, Dawn. His performance is nothing short of engaging, and it is obvious that he is a natural musician. Based on the smile on his face and the look of affection in his eyes, we'd say Smith had his wife in mind when he recorded his cover of "God Gave Me You."

Smith's emotional connection and delivery of the performance is part of what makes it so remarkable. But Smith's performance is also enhanced by his skilled performance on his acoustic guitar, which he plays with a great sense of passion.

In the years since his deployment and his "God Gave Me You" cover, Smith has delivered equally impressive renditions of other country hits, including Luke Bryan's "Play It Again" and Hunter Hayes' "Wanted."

Tune in below to watch Smith sing "God Gave Me You," which is one of his many talented covers.

We think this is a performance that would make Shelton proud!

LYRICS BELOW

I've been a walking heartache
I've made a mess of me
The person that I've been lately
Ain't who I wanna be

But you stay here right beside me
And watch as the storm blows through
And I need you

Cause God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
And for when I think I lost my way
There are no words here left to say, it's true
God gave me you
Gave me you

There's more here than what we're seeing
A divine conspiracy
That you, an angel lovely
Could somehow fall for me
You'll always be love's great martyr
And I'll be the flattered fool
And I need you
Yeah!

God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
And for when I think I lost my way
There are no words here left to say, it's true
God gave me you

On my own I'm only
Half of what I could be
I can't do without you
We are stitched together
And what love has tethered
I pray we never undo

Cause God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
And for when I think I lost my way
There are no words here left to say, it's true
God gave me you, gave me you
He gave me you
