Congratulations to Eric Church! He's a brand new dad! His wife Katherine gave birth to their first child Monday.

Baby boy, Boone McCoy Church, and mom are doing well.

“Everybody always tells you what an awesome and unique experience being a parent is” says Eric. ”Words can never do the feeling justice. I am very thankful and blessed to have a healthy and happy baby boy and baby mama,”

“It will be interesting to see how this new chapter in our life manifests itself musically,” he says. “I’ve always made music that was representative of real life.  Life doesn’t get more real than having a newborn at home.”

Gives a whole new meaning to his song "Drink in My Hand"...more like a baby bottle!
