“Well, go get that rock that your birth certificate’s carved on and let’s get this over with,” was how Marty Stuart proposed to Connie Smith.They say one key ingredient to their successful relationship is laughter, which is very apparent after watching them together.The story of their first meeting isn’t nearly as romantic as the rest of their courtship. Brooks said last year that songwriter Kent Blazy introduced the two of them in 1987, two years before the future superstar would release his first album on Capitol Records.
“As far as spirit and spunk and just get-up-and-go-for-it, Connie’s a younger person than I am,” he says, regarding the accusations.
Lonestar’s lead singer Richie Mc Donald and wife Lorie Ellis know how hard it is to keep a long-distance relationship alive.
' I said, ' Well, it's strange, because I felt that feeling like when you just meet your wife, but I've been married for 13 months,'" Brooks recalled.
At the time, the country star was wed to his college sweetheart, Sandy Mahl.
Blazy thought Brooks would like the "How Do I Live" chanteuse -- and he was right.
