A baby is on the way for country music star Bucky Covington and fiancée, Monarch Publicity’s Katherine Cook! The couple, who have been inseparable since they met in early 2007 and became engaged in 2010, just found out they will become three with the arrival of their first child this fall. The pair broke the news earlier today on People.com.

“We are so excited to share this news with friends and family! Expecting a child really puts things into perspective. I hope the baby gets my legs, and her patience! Haha!” shares the soon-to-be-father, Bucky Covington.

Bucky Covington’s self-titled debut CD opened at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart with the biggest first week sales for any debut country artist that year. He went on to become the best selling debut artist of 2007 and delivered three consecutive Top 10 hit singles to country radio. In addition to competing on the fifth season of American Idol, Bucky’s national television appearances have included Good Morning America, Live with Regis and Kelly!, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Tonight Show and Fox & Friends. Bucky’s last single, “Drinking Side of Country” (duet with Shooter Jennings), reached over 2 Million views on YouTube in only 2 short days following its premiere and features cameos by country star Kellie Pickler, Freestyle motocross rider Cowboy Kenny Bartram, and TNA Wrestler Mickie James. Bucky is currently in the studio working on new music and co-producing an upcoming project alongside Grammy nominated producer, Dale Oliver.

To share your congratulations with the father-to-be, connect with Bucky on Facebook and Twitter.

Country Artists Take Time Out to Share Christmas Traditions, Memories, and Favorite Gifts to Give – A CMTT Exclusive

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas! We hope you all are enjoying the holiday season. This year CMTT had the opportunity to chat with some of the country artists we all love about all things Christmas! Some will make you laugh and others may have you grabbing for the tissues. The best part is, just like the songs they sing, these artists are all so relatable and the real deal. Take a look at what they all had to say! Again, Merry Christmas and enjoy!

What is your favorite Christmas memory?

Blake Shelton

Blake Shelton:

My favorite Christmas memory probably just happened last year. You always have all the different things that happen, whether it’s a gift or whatever, but the last Christmas I spent with my dad was actually in a hospital room and everybody had all their Christmases going on and for whatever reason everybody had been in the hospital room with my dad all day and then people went on to go do their Christmases at their homes and I decided, ‘I’m just gonna stay here with my dad’ and me and my dad sat in that hospital room together and laughed all night. We watched a marathon of Dumbest Stuff on Wheels together on Christmas Eve this past year and man, I wouldn’t trade that time with him for anything. That’s something I’ll never forget.

What is your favorite Christmas tradition?

Dustin Lynch:

As a family we watch Christmas Vacation every year. Then all the guys in the family get a random gift from “Cousin Eddie” each year and all the guys have to open it up at the same time. I love it…it is kind of a random thing we do.

Casey James

Casey James:

Just the tradition of being around my family. We just make sure to get together and enjoy each other’s company. No matter who you are or where you are you can find something to be thankful for.

Colt Ford:

When I was 13 my mom was putting away the Christmas tree and I told her she should keep it up a little longer because everyone seems to be a little bit nicer during Christmas time. That was 40 years ago and that tree has never came down. That is my favorite tradition.

Scotty McCreery

Scotty McCreery:

For me it’s about Christ’s birth and the reason for the season and we always go to Christmas Eve service the night before. We plan to do that this year too.

Kip Moore:

Going fishing with my brothers.

David Nail New York Stock Exchange Tree LIghting

David Nail:

We lived across the street for my Grandparents and would go over and open presents and eat and then see who would take the first nap…it was always my dad.

Eli Young Band:

Jon Jones:

Being home with family

James Young:

This is the first Christmas I have been married, so it’s all about starting new traditions, but definitely being with family is most important.

Mike Eli:

My wife and I just had a baby girl. She is 4 months old now so with her being here we are starting to figure out this Christmas thing and also start some of our own traditions.

Chris Thompson:

A lot of GOOD food…LOVE it!

Jana Kramer

Jana Kramer:

My whole family gets together for Euchre tournaments and we have the best time. Also, having my grandmother’s cookies because she makes every kind of cookie you could ever dream of!

Hunter Hayes:

I think if I have any holiday traditions now it is just to make sure that I get back to Louisiana to see all my family. Because you know everybody’s there and we love to just hang out and that’s kind of just a tradition of ours, and it’s kind of understood that three days before and three days after Christmas or New Year or Thanksgiving, we just go down to Louisiana and spend time there and just hang out.

Faith Hill

Faith Hill:

I think one of the things that I love to do the most during the holiday season is when we finally get the time to pull everything out and decorate the house and there’s always that moment when we’re all together and we’re opening up the boxes and we talk about the things that we’re setting out.
