There must have been something in the water in Nashville in 2019. It seems like more country artists welcomed babies during the last year of the decade than any other year in the past!
To honor 2019’s country music baby boom, we have gathered the “first photos” of 20 babies born to country artists over the course of the year. That may seem like a lot of photos, but by no means does this list reflect every country music baby born in 2019.
We’ve organized our list by birth date, so you’ll see the oldest babies first and the youngest last. If you’ve kept up with any of these artists since they welcomed their new additions, you may be surprised to see how fast they’ve grown since they were born!
Go ahead and scroll through our list of 2019’s country music babies below.

Jacob Bryan Fisher entered the world in the wee hours of the morning on Monday…his mom, dad and big brother couldn’t be happier for God to trust them with taking care of this little miracle! Our hearts are full, our eyes are tired and our lives are forever changed. Life is good…
Carrie Underwood and her husband, Mike Fisher, welcomed their second son on January 21. They named him Jacob Bryan, honoring the tradition they started with their eldest son, Isaiah (age four), by choosing a Biblical name.
Jacob was born after Carrie and Mike lost three babies between 2017-2018. Calling him her “little miracle” when she announced his birth on social media, Carrie wrote, “Our hearts are full, our eyes are tired and our lives are forever changed. Life is good…”

When you thought you had loved as big as you ever could. And then in a single moment, the size of that love doubles. Welcome to the world Kirby Kaye Sandubrae. Our sweet girl joined us on Tuesday weighing 7lbs and 14oz. We are happy and healthy. Hensley Jack is the best big sister and Drew is way out numbered with a house full of girls and wouldn’t change a thing.
Toby Keith‘s youngest daughter, Krystal, followed in her dad’s famous footsteps and became a country singer as well. She made him a grandpa (again!) this year when she and her husband, Andrew Sandubrae, welcomed a baby girl.
They named her Kirby Kaye, and she joins big sister Hensley Jack (age four).
“Hensley Jack is the best big sister and Drew is way out numbered with a house full of girls and wouldn’t change a thing,” Krystal wrote when she introduced Kirby on Instagram.

Jason Aldean and his wife, Brittany, wanted to have their second child be close in age to their son, Memphis (age two). So their baby girl, Navy Rome Williams (which is Jason’s actual last name) was born on February 4.
Jason also has two daughters from his previous marriage, Keeley (age 16) and Kendyl (age 12).
Now the father of three girls, Jason gushed about his youngest daughter following her birth. “So excited to watch what life has in store for this little princess,” he wrote.

Baby Boy Stapleton
Chris Stapleton and his wife, Morgane, welcomed their fifth child in May.
The Stapletons are cautious when it comes to sharing details about their children. While we know they have three sons and a daughter, we only know the names of their daughter (Ada) and eldest son (Waylon). The names of their twin boys remain a mystery.
When their newest addition arrived, Chris and Morgane didn’t even say if Baby Stapleton was a boy or girl. But a couple weeks later, Morgane shared a picture of her family’s new addition and wrote, “Sweet boy… It’s hard believe almost a month has already gone by.”
The Stapletons have continued to keep Baby Stapleton’s name a secret.
Ramona Lynn Ivey
During an interview on the red carpet at the Grammy Awards, Margo said Loretta gave her permission to use “Lynn” as a name before she ever knew the gender of her child.
Ramona joined her big brother, Judah (age nine). Judah had a twin brother, Ezra, who sadly passed away two weeks after birth due to a heart condition.
Baby Ramona brought her family great joy after their heartbreak. Margo wrote of her connection with Judah, saying, “We are all so in love with her, especially her big brother Judah Quinn.”
Kimber Rose Whitley
Keith Whitley and Lorrie Morgan‘s son, Jesse Keith Whitley, is a singer like both of his parents. Now, there is a new baby girl in the world who may go on to continue the Whitley/Morgan musical legacy.
Jesse and his fiancée, Kristen Gann, welcomed their daughter Kimber Rose in June of this year. She was introduced through a video Jesse posted to social media, which shows her listening to her grandpa Keith’s “I’m No Stranger to the Rain.”
“Introducing baby girl to her papa this morning,” Jesse wrote. “Very emotional for me.”

Randy was thrilled to have another son in his life, writing after his birth, “He’s handsome, healthy, and happy and we couldn’t be more excited to get him home and start the next chapter of our lives together with him.”
Luca Reed Hubbard
“Luca is a name we loved and it means ‘bringer of light,’” Hayley told People. “…Reed is Tyler’s middle name, and we wanted Luca to have a little piece of Tyler in his name.”

Kingsley Rose Brown
Kane Brown and his wife, Katelyn, became first-time parents this year when their daughter, Kingsley Rose, was born on October 29.
Before Kingsley came into the world, Kane and Katelyn referred to themselves as KB2, since both of their names start with K.
So when Kingsley arrived, Kane penned the perfect caption to accompany her first photo. “KB3” he wrote along with a heart emoji.
Virginia Rose Smith
“Love You Like That” singer Canaan Smith and his wife, Christy, got quite the “treat” on Halloween when their firstborn child came into the world on October 31.
Christy gave birth to a baby girl. She and Canaan named her Virginia Rose.

“Burning House” singer Cam and her husband, Adam Weaver, surprised fans in mid-October when they announced Cam was seven months pregnant with their first child.
Their baby girl was born on December 21, just in time for Christmas. They named her Lucy Marvel, with Marvel being a family name on Cam’s side.
Lucy was introduced with a series of sweet snapshots. Cam said she was in the breech position and had to be born via C-section. But now she’s here, and she’s beautiful!
Cam has promised new music to come in 2020, and we can help but wonder if one song will be about Lucy. Kane Brown already released a song about his baby girl, Kingsley, titled “For My Daughter.”
You can listen to that heartwarming tune below.
Congratulations to all of the country singers who welcomed babies in 2019!
There are already several artists expecting in 2020, and we can’t wait to see all of the new additions to the country music family!
