Jerry Lee Lewis, veteran rock-and-roll singer/songwriter who married his 13-year-old cousin in 1957, has said "I do" to another member of his extended family.

Lewis tied the knot - for the seventh time - with Judith Brown on March 9 in Natchez, Miss., according to CNN. Brown was previously married to Lewis' cousin Rusty Brown.

The 76-year-old singer is known for his hit singles "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On" and "Great Balls of Fire." Though, after he married his 13-year-old cousin Myra Gale Brown when he was 23, the scandal stalled his career.

Dennis Quaid played Lewis in the 1989 biopic "Great Balls of Fire!," which co-starred Winona Ryder and Alec Baldwin.
