NASHVILLE, TENN. (AP) - Country singer Eric Church is a first-time dad.

He and his wife, Katherine, welcomed son Boone McCoy on Monday morning at Centennial Women’s Hospital in Nashville. Boone weighed in at 7 lbs., 11 oz.

Church says in a statement that words can’t do justice to the feeling of becoming a parent. He adds that he is “thankful and blessed to have a healthy and happy baby boy and baby mama.”

The “Love Your Love the Most” singer has been on tour with Toby Keith this fall, but he is scaling back his performances through the rest of the year.

Church is nominated for new artist of the year at the Country Music Association Awards on Nov. 9. He is known for hits including “Smoke A Little Smoke.”
