When Marty Stuart was 12-years old he met country music singer Connie Smith and literally fell in love. On the way home he told his mother that he was going to marry her.

“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.
