How We Met

This appeared in Country Weekly - November 12, 2002

Marty and Connie Smith:

When this couple met, she was a star - and he was a kid. "When I was 12 years old, I met Connie and got my picture taken with her," said Marty. "I told my mother I was going to marry her." And that's just what he did - although he had to wait 27 years until 1997 to do it. After Marty came to Nashville and had a few hits of his own, he began writing songs with Connie. "Then I started falling in love," he recalls.
