Lady Antebellum‘s Hillary Scott and husband Chris Tyrrell are singing lullabies these days as they welcomed their first child into the world on July 22. Daughter Eisele Kaye Tyrrell was born in Nashville and weighed in at 7 lbs, 13 ozs. Scott announced the happy occasion on Twitter by saying: “She’s here, and we are in HEAVEN!!! Eisele Kaye, our beautiful angel, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!” The proud papa described her by saying, “She is incredibly gorgeous.” The baby’s name is a combination of Tyrrell’s mother’s maiden name, and Scott’s mother, Reba McEntire duet partner Linda Davis, whose middle name is Kaye. Lady A plans to resume touring on November 8 in Southaven, Mississippi.
Megastar Garth Brooks has earned numerous accolades and titles throughout his career, but he recently added a brand new title to his resume: “grandpa.” Brooks became a first-time grandfather in July when his 19-year-old daughter August Anna Brooks gave birth to daughter Karalynn. Brooks released a statement saying, “Our family would first like to thank everyone for their warm wishes and sweet celebration of Baby K’s arrival.”
“You Don’t Know Her Like I Do” crooner Brantley Gilbert and “Why Ya Wanna” singer Jana Kramer have announced that they have broken off their engagement to be married. Gilbert asked Kramer to be his bride on his 28th birthday this past January on the stage of the legendary Ryman Auditorium. The couple was reportedly so busy touring that their relationship has suffered as a result of being apart while on the road. Not exactly the ideal situation for a young couple in love, especially a couple trying to plan a wedding. They reportedly realized that this relationship was not going to work with their busy schedules, therefore breaking off their engagement was the best solution.
On July 31, it was announced on country traditionalist Randy Travis‘s website that he had finally been released from the hospital after suffering a stroke on July 10, which required surgery to relieve pressure on his brain. The statement said: “Randy Travis has been discharged from Baylor Heart [Hospital] in Plano, Texas. Mr. Travis has been relocated to a physical therapy facility. ‘Thanks to all the fans and friends for your continued prayers and support as Randy continues on the road to recovery,’ says Travis’ fiancée Mary Davis.” Travis will reportedly spend a few months in this facility as he recovers from this stroke.
