He shared another photo of mother and son sleeping peacefully later, writing of his wife, "This is the bravest, toughest being I've ever come in contact with. 36 hrs all natural birth. I can't wait to hold this over The little guy's head when he starts showing his ass later in life ... Thank you for this gift baby. I love you @evynm."
The couple announced that they were expecting at a sold-out TC3 show in Nashville in October of 2016. Johnston shared the news from the stage at the Bridgestone Arena while supporting old friends Florida Georgia Line on their Dig Your Roots Tour.
“Evyn and I have been together for 15 years. We’ve been through so much together but nothing has ever been as exciting as expecting our first baby,” Johnston said in a press release after the announcement. “We can’t wait to meet this little bad ass in April!”
In addition to his work with the Cadillac Three, Johnston is a notable songwriter who has written hits for artists including Tim McGraw and Keith Urban, including Urban's hit collaboration with Eric Church, "Raise 'Em Up."
Congratulations to the growing family!
