Nashville has inspired much more than Eric Church‘s music career!

The country singer welcomed his second child, son Tennessee Hawkins Church, with wife Katherine on Sunday, Feb. 15, he announced via Facebook on Thursday.

Baby boy, whom the couple plan to call Hawk, weighed 6 lbs., 12 oz., and is 21 inches long.

“I’m thrilled that Hawk and his mom are doing well,” Church, 37, writes. “We aren’t sleeping very much, but we are enjoying every part of this incredible journey. I’m very blessed and thankful.”

Church — who announced the pregnancy by tweaking the lyrics to a song during a concert in September — and his wife are already parents to 3-year-old son Boone McCoy.

The birth of his second child comes in the midst of an exciting time for Church: Not only did he recently perform at the Grammys, but he is nominated for four Academy of Country Music Awards in April, including male vocalist of the year and album of the year for The Outsiders.

As the birth of her first child grows near, Carrie Underwood is doing her homework on how to balance motherhood with superstardom.

And one of her greatest teachers so far has been friend Hillary Scott, who’s happy to share advice on touring with babies on board.

“Carrie and I are really good friends and it was an honest, expectant [and] new mom conversation,” the Lady Antebellum singer, 28, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Adds the mom to 18-month-old daughter Eisele Kaye, “It’s a weird transition at first — you feel like you have to split your brain because you’re in such a mommy mode and then you’ve got to work at such an intense job too.”

Rule number one? Resist the temptation to tiptoe around the new baby.

It’s a good time to be Mike Fisher.

The hockey star has scored more points per game this season than ever before, his team, the Nashville Predators, holds the NHL’s best record and — best of all — he’s about to become a dad.

“I think it’s going to be awesome,” Fisher tells The Tennessean of having his first child — a son — with wife Carrie Underwood.

“I’ve always tried to balance things out in life. I think that’s important, and obviously kids are going to add a different dynamic that I can’t wait for.”

Underwood, who’s keeping her due month under wraps, but did skip the Grammys because she’s too far along, is “having a good pregnancy,” Fisher told the paper. “Everything has been going great so we’re blessed that way and praying everything will go well for the next little bit.”

Hillary Scott might be in for a second honeymoon when Lady Antebellum kicks off their Wheels Up 2015 Tour with a three-week, eight-city run through Europe and Australia.

But the trip will be “bittersweet” for Scott — whose husband, Chris Tyrrell, is the band’s drummer — as the couple will be leaving their 18-month-old daughter Eisele Kaye at home.

“Do you have a box of Kleenex before I start talking about it? My little girl is not going,” Scott, 28, told reporters Monday at a brunch in Nashville to celebrate the tour announcement.

“It’s just logistically a nightmare. But she will be in good hands. My mom will spoil her rotten and I’ll have to come home and probably rewrite a lot of bad habits.”

The first-time mama will have plenty to keep her busy, too. When she’s not on stage, Scott jokes she’ll be indulging in retail therapy.

She’s worn plenty of glamorous gowns the past few months, but Carrie Underwood‘s secret to feeling pretty during her pregnancy isn’t about getting all dressed up.

“Just knowing that the whole process itself is really beautiful … Even when I feel pretty large, it really is such a miracle and such a beautiful thing,” the country singer, who’s expecting her first child this spring, tells PEOPLE.

But despite embracing the special time in her life, Underwood, 31, is also awaiting the go-ahead to get in shape and bounce back to her pre-baby self.

“I’m looking forward to reclaiming my body,” she admits. “I’ve been saying it’s been on loan for the past many months … I’m excited to take it back.”

And with a little more than two months to go until she welcomes her baby boy, the mom-to-be and her husband Mike Fisher still have one big item left on their to-do list.
