Jerry Lee Lewis Gets Married Again…And Guess What…
Jerry Lee Lewis, believe it or not, is a Louisianian. Yep, Ferriday, LA is his place of birth, only 3 hours from here.
But wait, he has closer ties to the Ark-La-Tex. He was once on the Louisiana Hayride on the station, right down the hallway from our very studios.
According to www.RockAbillyHall.com, in “1956, Jerry Lee had made the rounds at the LOUISIANA HAYRIDE, and all the record companies in Nashville…when he heard about a small independent label outta Memphis that had given ELVIS PRESLEY his start…with hope and prayers of his family, financed with week’s worth of the family egg money, he and his daddy Elmo lit out for Memphis, Tennessee and SUN RECORDS.”
Now I won’t go into the drama that he calls his life, but I guess congrats goes out to Jerry, at 76 years of age, he is getting married again. And yes, he has married family members before, but this time it is the ex-wife of his late 2nd Cousin. (Soap Opera’s are written from stuff like this.)
Oh ya, this is his 7th marriage. You know what they say about #7, it is supposed to be lucky, right?
