Zac Brown Will Begin Another Year of Country Music Babies

Was it the sweet, sweet country music? Is that what had all the country stars so amorous this year? So many artists had so many babies in the past year, and now it looks like next year might be more of the same.

Zac Brown just announced on Twitter that he and his wife are expecting their fifth child in 2014. (Yes, their fifth. Which I think makes Brown the most amorous of all. The new baby will join big sisters Justice, Lucy, Georgia and Joni.)

But first let’s look at all the little bundles of joy who arrived within the last 12 months or so:

November 2012: Jake Owen and wife Lacey had their first adorable baby girl Olive Pearl Owen.

December 2012: Sugarland‘s Jennifer Nettles and husband Justin Miller announced the arrival of their son Magnus Hamilton Miller.

March 2013: Love and Theft‘s Eric Gunderson and wife Emily welcomed a baby boy, Camden.

July 2013: Lady Antebellum‘s Hillary Scott and drummer husband Chris Tyrrell brought the gorgeous baby girl Eisele Kaye into the world.

October 2013: Dierks Bentley and wife Cassidy welcomed their first son Knox to their family, giving Evie and Jordan a baby brother to love and adore.

In addition to the Browns’ impending arrival, here’s what to expect baby-wise in the next few months:

Lee Brice and wife Sara recently announced she is pregnant with a baby boy.

Love and Theft’s Stephen Barker Liles and his fiancée Jenna Kennedy are also expecting a baby boy, who they have already named Jett Barker Liles. (I was thinking they might name him “Hey Stephen” after the song Taylor Swift wrote about Liles, but I guess not.)

Alison makes her living loving country music. She's based in Chicago, but she's always leaving her heart in Nashville.
