Music Legends Willie Nelson and Loretta Lynn Receive Coronavirus Vaccines

Country music superstars Loretta Lynn and Willie Nelson both confirmed that they have received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine!

Loretta announced she and her daughter Peggy Lynn had been vaccinated in an Instagram post on Sunday (January 17).

“Well, I bundled up and Peggy Jean and I rolled out of Hurricane Mills so I could get this vaccine,” she wrote. “I’m sure glad to get it and am sure ready to put Covid in the rear view mirror! And I enjoyed the mom daughter time, too!”

Meanwhile, Willie went to a drive-thru clinic in Texas with wife Annie to receive his shot.

Annie told Rolling Stone, “He was bragging yesterday after he got it that he didn’t even have a sore arm. Now, today, of course his arm is sore. We’re both just a little tired. I don’t know if we wouldn’t be tired anyway, but we’re gonna do what they said and let the vaccine do its job.”

Disneyland just announced that their parks would serve as temporary vaccine distribution centers – click here to check out the photos!

Kid Rock, 49, & Loretta Lynn, 88, Got 'Married' This Weekend, But It Was Just a Joke

Kid Rock and Loretta Lynn… married?!

That’s what fans thought for several hours until Loretta revealed it was all a joke.

Over the weekend, Loretta‘s son had a vow renewal ceremony and her longtime friend Kid Rock was there. She posted to Instagram and said, “What a weekend! 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. Things got crazy then–my boy @kidrock was there and we’ve always teased about getting ourselves married. Well, the preacher was already there so we had some fun with it. Sorry girls, he’s taken now!”

About 14 hours later, Loretta clarified on her page that they didn’t really get married.

“Well, it didn’t last long, y’all but it sure was fun! I guess I better get on here and let y’all know that it was just a joke— @kidrock and I didn’t get married over the weekend, but we had a blast,” she posted.

Lynn‘s granddaughter posted on Instagram that Loretta, 88, and Kid Rock, 49, “adore each other” and “joke around all the time about getting married and saying to heck with the rest of em.”

Kid Rock is mostly in the news these days for his right-wing political views.
