I’ve got some great news that I am especially proud to share with you guys. I wanted you to be the first to know, but I accidentally let the news slip on my recent Opry performance because I was overcome with emotion — Kimberly and I are going to be parents!

We are so excited, and ask that you keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we begin this new and exciting chapter of our lives. I’ll keep you posted on Kimberly’s progress and let you know when our blessed bundle of joy arrives.
