Many of Lorrie's songs appear in the documentary The Brandon Teena Story (1998).
At the end of 2003, she and her husband, singer Sammy Kershaw, filed for divorce. The split apparently became violent and they took restraining orders out on each other. By July 2004, the couple were back together. On her July 5 appearance on Larry King Live (1985), she discussed the split, explaining that interference from outsiders put a lot of strain on their relationship but they pulled through and would remain a couple.
