This appeared in People Online - July 16, 1997

Country singer-guitarist Marty Stuart got married July 8 in Pine Ridge, South Dakota to fellow country artist Connie Smith. It's the second wedding for 38-year-old Stuart, who was divorced from Johnny Cash's daughter Cindy, and the fourth go-round for 55-year old Smith. Stuart, a two-time Grammy winner, began his professional music career at age 13 playing mandolin with Lester Flatt. His hits include "Tempted," "The Whiskey Ain't Workin' " with Travis Tritt and, most recently "Honky Tonkin's What I Do Best." Smith made her record debut in 1964 with the No. 1 single "Once A Day."
