Music icon Marty Stuart married Connie Smith in 1997 and he was 17 years younger than her. Here he talks about how the couple found love with each other.
“She was my mother’s favorite singer. We had a record of her at our house called ‘Miss Smith Goes to Nashville.’ It had a beautiful photograph of her on the cover,” Stuart said in an interview. “I thought she was the prettiest girl in the world, so I had my mama take me to buy me a yellow shirt, so Connie would notice me that night”.
At the time Smith was 17-years old. Decades would follow and it wasn’t until Smith asked Stuart to help produce her album that Stuart’s prediction started to come true.
