Charlie and Emily Robison Welcome Baby Boy

The Dixie Chicks’ Emily Robison gave birth to a baby boy Monday night (Nov. 11) in San Antonio. Charles Augustus Robison arrived at 10 p.m., weighing 8 pounds and 13 ounces and measuring 21 inches long. Robison is married to country singer Charlie Robison. This is the first child for the couple who live in Bandera, Texas. The child’s middle name is inspired by one of the main characters in the Larry McMurtry novel Lonesome Dove. Charlie Robison is taking time off the road in the coming months to spend time with his wife and child. “We’re so happy to have a healthy baby boy and feel very blessed,” he said. “I’ll probably hold off at least a couple of days before teaching him how to ride a horse.” 11/12/02
