Dierks Bentley, Wife Welcome Daughter for Christmas

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

It’s tempting, but I promise I will not resort to any “born on Christmas day” cliches. I will say, though, that for Dierks Bentley and his wife Cassidy, having a baby on Dec. 25 will make the holiday mean so much more to their growing family. Forever. Bentley tweeted very early this morning (12/25), writing, “say what u want about santa’s physique, but no arguing his impeccable timing! evie wanted a little sis for Xmas & JORDAN just arrived!” He added that his new daughter chose the banjo driven part of Mumford & Sons “Awake My Soul” as her “walk-on music.” Regardless of the how, when and what of baby Jordan’s birth, I’m just so thrilled for the whole Bentley family that she arrived happy and healthy. Hopefully, he will tweet more details later with pictures.
