Rocker Kid Rock may be playing it close to the vest right now about his romantic life, but it wasn't always so. Many remember when he ran with former Baywatch star Pamela Anderson back in 2001, getting engaged only to call off the wedding a few months later.

The duo shocked everyone, however, by tying the knot in a surprise ceremony nearly five years later, in July 2006. Their happily ever after only lasted about five months, before geographical distance and the couple's desire to each live in separate cities, led to their downfall.

Now, another five years later, Rock wouldn't change a day of it. "I don't regret that, no," he told CNN's Piers Morgan about his shotgun wedding to Anderson and their fast-to-follow divorce. "It was a blast," he said. "The discussions of her have been covered throughout the years, it's over. But I will tell you this one if you've not heard me say it yet — getting married [was] some of the most fun I've ever had in my life …. We loved it so much."

Currently Rock has other things to think about. Last weekend he kicked off the summer leg of his Born Free tour with another ex, singer and frequent Rock collaborator, Sheryl Crow, who will open for his performances on the tour. The two shocked their fans with the surprise 2003 hit, "Picture," a melodic duet which no one — not even the song's label — expected to succeed. Rock, who seems to have a pretty high regard for his former romantic interests, loves being on the road with Crow and wouldn't have it any other way. "She's my favorite duet partner," he told Rolling Stone. "She loves country stuff and she can rock it out with the best of them. She's not scared to let us take it up to 10 and she can also sit on a stool and make the hair on your arms stand up."

Don't look for any romantic sparks on stage, however. Rock has a mystery lady in his life. Any word on if he will ever walk down the aisle again? "Right now I'd say no," he told Morgan. "But I've learned to never say no."
