Marty Was Feeling Really 'Pretty' Yesterday
|This appeared in The Tennessean - December 22, 2000|
A hearty mazel tov to Marty Stuart and noted Nashville session players Kristin Wilkinson (viola) and her hubby, Larry Paxton (bass), for getting a Golden Globe nomination yesterday.
The three got an original score nomination for the soon-to-be-released All the Pretty Horses, Billy Bob Thornton's latest. The film opens in Nashville on Christmas Day.
Marty, who played host at a Nashville screening last night, calls the soundtrack "elegant cowboy music with a Spanish flair."
He fought the big movie studio house to be able to bring Kristin and Larry to the composing table. Producers had urged him to use L.A. co-composers, but Marty won out. And now he has a Golden Globe nomination to prove who was right.
Marty's wife, Connie Smith, got the phone call from L.A. around 7:30 yesterday morning.
"I heard Connie say, 'He's asleep he'll call you back, but I'm sure he'll be happy to hear it.' Later on, I was fully awake and Connie told me, and I'm like, Do WHAT?!?" Marty said.
He immediately called Kristin.
"The scream I got was worth doing the whole movie," he said. "It was wonderful."
