“Back in Baby’s Arms”-With a little help from my myspace friends

by Kevin on May 6, 2009

           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.

Oh and a BIG P.S. to my former comment …I had never seen the “behind the scenes” video!! Now that is just too funny! Although I “do” have a folder in my myspace pix of some “behind the scenes” pictures from that day. Have you seen them? 😎

I loved this and also the “True” video! Really enjoyed your music, and you can’t go wrong with Glenn Sweitzer.

Hello, cousin! I see you are going to be in Clovis, NM this fall. I’m thinking about flying out to Lubbock to come see you. Since you are so far away from Texas I would enjoy seeing and visiting you for awhile. Mother (Aunt Theresa) hears from Bob frequently , I hope he will be visiting Texas sometime soon. Love ya. Betty

Im doing Patsy Clines version of the song for a Patsy Cline Tribute Show this weekend. Its one of my favorites in our set list of songs for the show. I will be of course letting the audience know that your father was the writer and that he was also Patsy's neighbor. Do you have any other information about the song that I might be able to share with the audience? Thanks.
