Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn’s Grandkids Sing Their Rendition of “You’re The Reason Our Kids Are Ugly”

Conway & Loretta’s Grandkids Perform ‘You’re The Reason Our Kids Are Ugly’
by

Tre Twitty and Tayla Lynn, grandkids of the famous vocal duo Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn, sang their own rendition of “You’re The Reason Our Kids Are Ugly” in a private concert for employees of CJ1150, a Southeast Saskatchewan’s country music station. And they definitely showed that they are their grandparent’s grandkids. 

Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn first teamed up in 1971 with their song “After The Fire Is Gone” and went on for a legendary decades-run charting 12 duet singles in the top 10 with five of which at number one. And the rest of their discography though not awarded, remained equally iconic and classic country tunes. But it wasn’t just the songs and the harmony of their voices that helped them establish their name in the industry. It was also their undeniable chemistry on stage. (It was so undeniable that it even sparked romance rumors that until now still haven’t quit though Conway Twitty already passed away.)

And now, their kids and grandkids are continuing their legacy. Conway Twitty’s son Michael loves to perform his songs, and Michael’s son Tre also enjoyed singing along to his granddad’s songs. Loretta Lynn has even performed with both of them. On the other hand, Loretta Lynn’s granddaughter Tayla is keeping hers alive. 

In 2018, Tre and Tayla put on a mini-concert at CJ1150. Tayla kicked off the performance with her grandmother’s feisty hit “Fist City,” then Tre entered for a duet. The two sang the legendary vocal duo’s “You’re The Reason Our Kids Are Ugly,” which is the B-side of their 1978 single “From Seven Till Ten.” Watch their performance in the video below.
