My father, Bob Montgomery, wrote “Back in Baby’s Arms” for Patsy Cline. She was our next door neighbor in Madison, Tennessee…..where we lived when my parents first moved to Nashville. He was repairing tv’s during the day, and writing songs in our basement at night.
I recorded it on the “True” cd, and then shot this video last year.
I became friends with video director Glenn Sweitzer on myspace. We decided to do a video for “Back in Baby’s Arms”, so we set about putting the video shoot together.
In a nutshell, I invited my Nashville myspace friends to take part in the shoot, and we shot it on a saturday afternoon on my friend Danny White’s farm in Hendersonville.
About 200 friends show up. We had chicken and barbeque donated from a local bbq place, and people brought pot luck plates to contribute. We had drinks. We pulled a flatbed trailer up to the house, and put the band on top of the flatbed.
We basically had a party. Glenn got so into it that we ended up shooting two videos that day……the other video being “True”.
Friends came all the way from NY, Missouri, and Key West for the shoot! Pretty crazy. My friend shot this video of the shooting of the video…..a little behind the scenes video……pretty cool.
