jimiwestbrook_karenfairchild Just a few nights ago, I was in one of those UStream video chats with Little Big Town. I love those things. It is really like sitting in the same room with your favorite artists. We type questions, they read them, they answer us. Sometimes the artists on the other side of my computer screen sing. And in the case of Little Big Town, they showed us their fun side, by jumping on the bed in the hotel room.

I don’t remember exactly what night the chat was, but it was during CRS, which means it was between Feb. 24-26. And as you might expect, a UStream chat that close to Karen’s due date meant we’d be talking about the baby. Like I said, these chats are really like sitting there with them. The only thing missing was a tall glass of sweet tea for everyone.

Little_Big_Town8 Since that chat, Karen and Jimi welcomed their new son, Elijah Dylan Westbrook, on Friday, March 5, 2010. The baby weighed 7 lbs., 14 oz., and was 19 and ¾ inches long.

Karen and Jimi were married in 2006, and this is their first child. In an article at People.com, Jimi said “Karen is going to be an incredible mom. She has always been so good with children. Besides, she’s done a great job raising me to become a responsible adult!” That’s so cute.

Little Big 3 Little Big Town will soon take to the road to promote their new single, “Little White Church.” The song is part of their new album, and is being released to radio the second week in March. In May they will begin touring with Montgomery Gentry, Jamey Johnson and Jack Ingram on the Country Throwdown Tour.

Here’s what Karen had to say to People.com — “We’ve been waiting for this for a long time and can’t tell you how thrilled and blessed we both feel,” says Karen, who went on to say that her hubby is going to be a “natural” at fatherhood.

Congratulations Karen and Jimi – You enjoy that little one … they’re kinda like kittens, they don’t stay little very long.

That’s all for now. Talk to you guys in the morning. Hope you had a super weekend!
