High Valley’s Curtis Rempel Expecting Second Child Any Day Now
Curtis Rempel, one-half of country duo High Valley, has baby number two on the way! Rempel and wife Myranda are expecting their new bundle of joy in just a matter of weeks, with a due date in March of 2017.
“We’re counting down, my wife can’t wait to not be pregnant anymore,” Curtis tells Taste of Country during Country Radio Seminar. While they don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl, the couple has a “pretty good idea” of what they’re going to name their new child, but are keeping the potential names under wraps.
Brother Brad has two sons of his own, Drew and Cash, both of whom Curtis helped to name — with pop superstar Taylor Swift also playing a significant role. Brad and his wife Rebekah were driving in the car with Curtis one day when Swift’s chart-topping “Teardrops on My Guitar” was playing on the radio, with the song’s narrator singing about her love for a boy named Drew.

“T Swift came on and I was like, ‘Hey that’s a cool name, how about Drew?'” Curtis says about how he came up with the name of his brother’s son. “So technically Taylor Swift named my son, which is cool,” chimes in Brad.
The story behind Cash doesn’t involve a music superstar, but rather Rebekah simply asking her brother-in-law for advice on baby names, to which Curtis responded that he thought Cash would make for a cool name — and the couple clearly agreed.
Both brothers admit their children were a big influence in the creation of their latest album, Dear Life, with the boys saying the title track is like a letter to their kids.
