Josh Abbott and Girlfriend Welcome Baby Daughter to the Family

Josh Abbott Band’s Josh Abbott and his girlfriend, Taylor Parnell, welcomed a baby daughter into the world this morning (May 5). Emery Farryn Abbott, who weighed 6 lbs., 13 oz., was born in Austin, Texas, at 1 a.m.

“The name Emery Farryn means ‘Brave Adventure,’” said Josh. “We wanted to do something similar . . . to how my brother named his daughter Eisley Dawn, which means ‘Cheerful Beginnings.’ The word ‘brave’ is a word I used to describe Taylor in a song I wrote for her, ‘I’m Your Only Flaw,’ on the new album coming out this year.”

Congrats to the happy couple.
