Jake Owen and his lovely wife Lacey celebrated the birth of their first child last week on Thanksgiving Day, and it brings to mind another holiday birth in the country music family when Kix Brooks received some unexpected Christmas Eve news from his wife, Barbara.   Kix tells Sony Music Nashville:  “My daughter, Molly, was born on Christmas Eve, which was just truly amazing. We were gettin’ ready to go to Louisiana, and the baby was due about three weeks later. She called me up and said, ‘I’m in labor!’ I said, ‘Well, what are you gonna do?’ She said, ‘Well, I’m gonna go home and get my suitcase packed and stuff like that.’ I go, ‘Awesome!’ You know? Because I was downtown, and the one thing I cared most about was drivin’ to the hospital. I mean, I’d waited my whole life to go as fast as I wanted, and if the cop pulls me over, I can go, ‘We’re havin’ a baby!!!!’ You know? That’s…(laughs)…so I did not want to miss that. So I flew home, you know, and, of course, she had, you know, another 10 hours, but I still drove, you know, 130 the whole way.”
