Jake Owen and wife Lacey welcomed the Thanksgiving Day arrival of their first child, daughter Olive Pearl, who was born Thursday (Nov. 22) in Nashville. Weighing 6 pounds 3 ounces, she will go by her middle name in honor of Owen's godmother who passed away in July just months after the newlyweds found out they were expecting. "Lacey and I are so excited to start our own family," Owen said in a statement issued by his publicist. "We are looking forward to teaching Pearl everything we learned from our parents and also learning from her." The singer-songwriter returns to the road next week during CMT on Tour Jake Owen: The Summer Never Ends 2012 with sold-out shows on Nov. 29-30 at Chicago's House of Blues.
