Congratulations to Emily Robertson and Marc “Butter” Fortney! The couple welcomed their first child, a baby boy, on October 16. Robertson, of Carter’s Chord, and Fortney, of Trailer Choir, named the 7 pound, 20 inch baby Tug Ryder Fortney.

“We loved the name Tug,” Fortney tells Taste of Country. “Obviously, Tug McGraw is the only Tug we know, and I am a huge baseball fan, so it just worked for him.”

The new father also said that fatherhood was so much more than he expected. “I’m a pretty big dreamer and wide thinker, and it exceeded anything I could be ready for,” he says softly. “It’s something sweeter than I ever thought it could be and feel like.”

Congratulations again to the happy (and healthy) family!
