Father’s Day is upon us and that means it’s time to acknowledge all the dads who work so hard to support and guide their families through life. For the dads who get to celebrate for the first time, this will be an extra special day.

Taking care of a newborn baby, especially for the first time, can be incredibly challenging, but also amazing. For these dads in the Country music industry, there are obstacles to overcome that the everyday father would not normally have to deal with. Having to be away on the road for weeks or months on end or missing the little milestones in their child’s life can be very disheartening for a father. Even with their busy schedules, however, these dads find the time to be a noble figure and ever so present within their children’s lives.

Before they are even born, these little bundles of joy are already making their mark in the music industry, starting with the inspiration they bring to their songwriter dads. Chris Lane and Russell Dickerson are among the list of new dads that have already released heartwarming tunes dedicated to their current and future children.

We compiled a list of some of the Country star dads celebrating their first Father’s Day, including Chris Lane, Jon Langston, Braison Cyrus, Morgan Wallen and more. See the full list and their newest family members below.
