No more "Whisky Lullabye" for Brad Paisley. 

The country singer and wife Kimberly Williams-Paisley welcomed a son Thursday, the couple's first child together, their reps confirmed to E! News

The "healthy baby boy," who will presumably require a drier form of musical entertainment, was born at 5 a.m. at a Nashville hospital, publicists Darlene Bieber and Michelle Bega said in a joint statement. "Mother and baby are resting comfortably," they said. 

Paisley and Williams-Paisley, who split their time between homes in Franklin, Tennessee, and Los Angeles, tied the knot on March 15, 2003, the first trip down the aisle for both. 

A five-time Country Music Association Award winner, Paisley has said that he has harbored a crush on his missus ever since seeing her in 1991's Father of the Bride, in which she starred as the object of Steve Martin's anxiety, and that she inspired his 2004 hit "Little Moments." 

In addition to fulfilling his expectant-father duties last year, Paisley wrapped up his Time Well Wasted tour in December and has already announced plans for his Bonfires and Amplifiers tour, which kicks off Apr. 26 in Chattanooga, Tennessee. 

Williams-Paisley currently stars as Courtney Thorne-Smith's pal Dana on According to Jim, which returned to ABC for its sixth season last month but has been on a break for the past two weeks to allow the all-of-a-sudden struggling network to air repeats of Lost during the 9 p.m. hour on Wednesdays. 

The new mom, who also prominently dated tennis ace Pete Sampras for a couple of years in the late 1990s, is up next in the indie coming-of-age comedy Eden Court. Some of her recent film credits include How to Eat Fried Worms, We Are Marshall and the romantic short Shade with Patrick Dempsey, which also marked her directorial debut.
