The Hayes Boys - Garret Hayes, Green Hayes (holding Eli Green Hayes), and Rick HayesAnother bluegrass baby!

Eli Green Hayes was born August 20, 2009 at 2:22 p.m, the first grandson of Rick Hayes, former long-time mandolinist with The Gibson Brothers and chief luthier with Rick Hayes Instruments in Cincinnati, OH.

His proud parents are Rick’s son Garrett Hayes and his wife Allison. Young Eli weighed in at 7 lbs., 3 oz., standing 19.75”.
