The 50-year-old country singer's wife Rose Falcon gave birth to their second son Scout Falcon in Nashville this Monday.
'It’s amazing how Aug. 26 was just another day on the calendar. Now it’s a day we thank God for and will celebrate every year,' the parents told People.

The singer's representative revealed that the couple's latest little pride and joy weighed 8lbs, 11oz at the time of his birth.
Scout was born five days after he was due, Rodney recalled, dishing: 'We had already tried several things to get her labor started but nothing worked until Rose tried the old wives’ tale, castor oil.'
Ryder was conceived through in vitro fertilization after a fertility struggle, and with that experience in the rearview 'I never imagined we would have a (very much wanted) surprise baby, said Rose.
She dished: 'Rodney was the most incredible birth partner, my rock. His calm and collected nature was so reassuring at times when I felt overwhelmed.'
Namesake: The baby was named after Rodney's first car, which was 'was a 1976 International Scout,' he shared with People; pictured in 2014
Rodney's fellow country hunk Tyler Hubbard welcomed his son Luca on August 19 with his wife Olivia, and joked on Instagram that he was the 'DUDEla.'
'Last week, I saw on Instagram where Tyler Hubbard declared himself a DUDEla. I think maybe he and Rodney should go into business,' Rose quipped to People.
The baby was named after Rodney's first car, which was 'was a 1976 International Scout,' he shared with People.
'After Watching You went No. 1, Mike Curb gave me the keys to the ’72 Scout that I drove in the video. I’ve always thought it would be a cool name for a boy, and I still can’t believe Rose went for it.'

Rose and Rodney, who married on Captiva Island off the Florida coastline in 2013, are also the parents of a one-year-old son called Ryder.
Rodney shares a 17-year-old son called Elijah with his ex-wife Tammy Jo McDonald, whom he married in 1998 near the start of his career.
He filed for divorce in 2011 less than a full day after he was arrested and accused of using a pillow to try and smother Tammy Jo - an allegation he staunchly denied.
Rodney's lawyer claimed the couple had only fought verbally and the assault charge was retired in February 2012, seven months before the divorce was finalized.
