After famously tying the knot with his 13-year-old cousin in 1957, the 76-year-old rock-n-roll trailblazer weds another member of his extended family.

Jerry Lee Lewis, famous for being a rock-n-roll trailblazer in the 1950s, a career nearly derailed after he married his 13-year-old cousin (once removed) Myra Gale Brown in 1957, has tied the knot for the seventh time -- and again, to a member of his extended family.

Lewis said "I Do" to Judith Brown on March 9 in Natchez, Mississippi, CNN reports. Brown was married to Lewis' cousin Rusty Brown, a drummer who played with the piano prodigy since they were kids. Rusty is Myra's older brother. Got all that?
