On Sunday, Loretta Lynn shared a series of photos from her recent "wedding" to Kid Rock, which took place during a vow renewal ceremony over the weekend between Lynn's son Ernest and his wife Crystal. "What a weekend!" Lynn captioned a series of photos from the day. "My Ernie & Crystal renewed their vows this weekend. It was beautiful and everything it should be. Marriage isn't always easy--heck it's not even always pretty, but love holds you together and you push through the bad days to enjoy the good ones. I'm so proud of them and wish them years of happiness."
Several of the photos showed Kid Rock down on one knee, his hands in Lynn's. In one shot, the country legend wore a bridal veil as Kid Rock held something in his hand. "my boy @kidrock was there and we've always teased about getting ourselves married," Lynn wrote. "Well, the preacher was already there so we had some fun with it. Sorry girls, he's taken now!"

"You must understand how close Kid and Memaw have gotten. Like they adore each other. They joke around all the time about getting married and saying to heck with the rest of em," she wrote. "So Dad and Crystal decide to make that happen! They have the preacher announce that he’s ready to do the vows now!"
"Memaw and Kid both become giddy. Like school kids. They were so caught off guard but both so happy," Tayla continued. "They played along. (Cause obv it’s a joke) Unc (Tim Cobb) even had the veil ready. We all Laughed, sang, hugged. It was a moment last night in the midst of the world turning sideways where love and joy were absolutely shared."prev
