We admit it. Happily. We never met a baby that we didn’t like, that we didn’t think was adorable and that we didn’t think earned a place in the fictitious Baby Hall of Fame. So when one of our favorite country singer-songwriters announces that he has a newbie on the way, we are, of course, over the moon. And this time our congratulations go out to singer-songwriter Adam Hood and his wife Britni.
Now, Adam’s name may not be as familiar to you, but the Alabama native has had the esteemed honor of touring with fellow artists like Willie Nelson, Miranda Lambert and Pat Green. He is also a prolific writer, with songs that have been recorded by Little Big Town (“Front Porch Thing”), David Nail (“Grandpa’s Farm”) and actor/musician John Corbett (“Tennessee Will”).
Or you might know him from one of the precious photos of his 18-month-old daughter, Evelyn Drury, that we have shared.
Not only is she absolutely adorable, she’s also hilarious.
Adam is truly one of the nicest and most talented guys in the music business, so we were tickled to learn that he and Britni are expecting baby No. 3. But Adam didn’t just post a photo of the couple’s ultrasound image. Being the songwriter that he is, he did what he does best — he wrote a song about it!
He also enlisted the help of daughter Dru, who may have had her own agenda during the performance.
Yes, you heart that right. This is baby girl No. 3 for Adam, who also has a beautiful daughter named Ashlyn.
Adam and Britni haven’t yet shared a due date or possible name choices, but we really don’t want all that info up front, do we? What’s the fun in that! It’s nice to save a little something extra to share when Baby Girl Hood arrives later this year, hopefully after Dad’s upcoming tour, which kicks off Feb. 1 in Nashville and currently stretches into April.
We weren’t really expecting that the number of births to take place in country music in 2018 could surpass the more than three dozen new babies we welcomed in 2018, but things are getting off to a pretty big start. Especially with Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott and husband Chris Tyrrell kicking the new year off right with twins who just arrived on Jan. 29.
Congratulations to Adam, Britni, Ashlyn and Dru on the new addition to the family.
