This Father's Day was a particularly special holiday for up-and-coming country music singer Jared Ashley. On June 9, Ashley and his wife, Taylor, welcomed a brand new baby girl into their home.

Georgia McClain Ashley entered the world in Nashville, weighing in at 7 pounds, 2 ounces. Mom and baby girl are doing just fine, and it sounds like Georgia's Daddy couldn't be more excited about her arrival.

"This whole process has been and continues to be such an amazing experience,” Ashley told 'Country Weekly.' “I never imagined I could love someone so much in an instant. I just pray she grows up to look like her mother!”

The newcomer country singer might get his wish. Georgia Ashley already has a head of dark hair, just like her mom.

The Ashleys both grew up in Georgia, so naming their daughter after their home state must have seemed like a no-brainer.

Ashley has been a regular performer at Nashville's famous Tootsie's Orchid Lounge, which has helped him develop a dedicated fan base in recent years. This year, the country singer released his debut single, 'Last Train to Memphis.' The tune is available for download on iTunes.
