Did Robert Plant get married to Patty Griffin?

Rumors out of Austin, Texas suggest Robert Plant may have married his Band Of Joy bandmate Patty Griffin.

Things started with a report by Austin Music Source blog Austin 360 back in May that the two were an item, with writer Michael Corcoran describing a passionate make-out session at the baggage claim area of a local airport as Griffin picked up Robert upon his arrival.

Last week, Corcoran tweeted an update:

“Did Robert Plant and Patty Griffin get married? Friends say they’re madly in love, but that seems kinda quick. And it’s just a rumor.”

This week, Ultimate Classic Rock received an anonymous tip that the couple were seen sporting wedding rings for “at least the past several days, with the Led Zeppelin legend introducing Griffin to people as his wife.”

Plant’s publicist responded to an inquiry from UCR requesting confirmation on their status, with a “not to my knowledge” comment.

Robert, Patty and the Band Of Joy recently snagged Album Of The Year at the 10th Annual Americana Music Honors and Awards event in Nashville, with co-producer/band leader Buddy Miller honored in two categories: Artist Of The Year and Instrumentalist Of The Year; Miller has now won 12 AMHA honors over the years.
