In the late 1950s, Lorrie was the first girlfriend of then TV star and teen idol Ricky Nelson, on both the television show "The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet" and in real life.
In 1959, at the age of 17, Lorrie married Johnny Cash's manager, Stu Carnall, who was twice her age. She continued acting and singing with Ricky on the TV show and recording and touring with her brother Larry until 1961, when she gave birth to her first child. She "retired" at the age of 19.
The Collins Kids reunited for a rockabilly revival concert in England in 1993 and continue to perform together.
