In Gatlinburg, TN,  John Cullum was starring in "Chucky Jack," an outdoor drama about the Indian fighter John Sevier, one of the foundering fathers of Tennessee.

Emily Frankel's dance company was playing the Indians. Em's former partner, and ex husband, was the choreographer.

When she saw John, Em remembers thinking -- "that's the best looking man I ever saw."  John was struck by the pert look of her driving the company's extra large station wagon.

He recalls the night he walked by her home in NYC, singing Chucky Jack's theme, the fact that Em heard him, raced downstairs, and invited him in.

"And I never left," John says, and they reminisce.
