Singer/songwriter Eric Paslay and wife Natalie welcomed their first child, daughter Piper Lily Paslay, into the world on Dec. 8 in Nashville. The couple broke the news just last week, after spending a few days of getting to know their new baby. “It took three days for us to name her,” Paslay tells People. “We needed to get to know our baby girl before we could choose.”

Eric has co-penned hits for Jake Owen, Eli Young Band, Rascal Flatts and more, as well as had his own success on the charts with “Friday Night,” “Song About a Girl” and “She Don’t Love You.”

Eric and Natalie were married in 2015. Paslay is currently recording his next album and has a live album in the works, both of which are due in 2019.
