Grampa Doyle

Doyle Lawson with his grandson, Spencer Raleigh Lawson WilliamsI guess that a new CD, a revamped stage band and a busy touring schedule won’t be the highlight of Doyle Lawson’s summer of ’07.

The news that has him occupied at present is the birth of his first grandchild, Spencer Raleigh Lawson Williams, on July 18. He is the son of Doyle’s daughter Kristi, and her husband Ben.

Grandma Suzanne Lawson shared a few details:

“He is a big boy, weighing in at 8 lbs. 11 oz., and he’s 21.5″ long. He has really big feet, a bit of dark hair and dark eyes. The Lawsons and extended family couldn’t be more excited.”

From the look of the accompanying photo, it appears that Doyle is already teaching Spencer to sing!

Congratulations all around to Doyle and his family.
