Nearly 30 years ago, bull rider Lane Frost died after a ride at the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo. While riding a bull named "Takin' Care of Business," Frost dismounts after his 8-second ride, but the bull comes after him, goring him in the side. Frost suffered some broken ribs and a severed main artery. As a result of excessive internal bleeding, he died on the arena floor.
In 1994, Frost was honored with a movie about his life and untimely death. 8 Seconds starred Luke Perry as Lane and Stephen Baldwin as his buddy and fellow bull rider Tuff Hedeman.
The story follows Frost's career, his marriage to Kellie Kyle and his untimely death. During the movie scene from Lane and Kellie's wedding, Vince Gill and Karla Bonoff take the stage at their reception to perform the toe-tapping, dance-worthy tune "When Will I Be Loved." The song kicks off a dance floor battle between Frost and Hedeman, making for one of the most beloved scenes in the film.
The dance became so popular that a fan created an 8 Seconds line dance has been recreated by many wedding parties over the last two decades. One of the best comes from a 2010 wedding video posted to YouTube. In the clip, three wedding guests and the bride take the floor to perform the iconic line dance. The bride eventually leaves the floor leaving the men to show off their impressive dance skills. Check out the video below!
