Country music icon Loretta Lynn and Kid Rock had a little fun this weekend when Lynn’s son and his wife renewed their marriage vows. Lynn said on her Facebook page. “My Ernie & Crystal renewed their vows this weekend. It was amazing and everything it should be. Marriage is not always easy — heck it is not even necessarily pretty, but love holds you together and you push through the terrible days to enjoy the good ones. I’m so proud of these and wish them years of enjoyment. Things got crazy then — my boy Kid Rock was there and we have always teased about getting ourselves married. The preacher was already there so we had any fun with it. Sorry girls, he is taken now!
As Lynn said on Instagram,”Things got mad then–my boy @kidrock was there and we’ve always teased about becoming ourselves wed. The preacher was there so we had any fun with it. Sorry girls, he’s taken now!”
Lynn afterwards posted,”Well, it didn’t last long, y’all but it was fun! I guess I better get on here and allow y’all know that it was a joke– @kidrock and I didn’t get married on the weekend, but we had a blast.

Just like they love each other. They joke around all of the time about getting married and saying to hell with the rest of em. So Dad and Crystal decide to make that happen!
They possess the preacher announce that he’s prepared to perform the yells now!
Memaw and Kid equally become giddy. Like school children. They were so caught off guard but both so pleased. They played along. (Cause obv it’s a joke) Unc (Tim Cobb) even had the veil ready. It was a second last night in the middle of the planet turning sideways where love and joy were absolutely shared.”
