Country singer Connie Smith became an overnight sensation in 1964, when her recording of Bill Anderson’s "Once A Day" shot to the top of the U.S. country charts where it stayed for eight weeks. She scored several more Top 10 hits throughout the '60s and '70s, and became a member of the Grand Ole Opry in '65. She also capitalized on her looks and charm by appearing in a handful of country music-related films in the '60s. Smith retired from showbiz in '79 to raise her family, but made a respectable one-shot comeback in '98 with an album produced by her husband Marty Stuart. She occasionally appears as a guest singer on country and gospel albums by other artists.
