Welcome Elijah Benson!

Elijah BensonAnother bluegrass baby!

Dustin and Emmy Lou Benson are celebrating the birth of their second child, Elijah Scott. He made his appearance yesterday (3/10) at 9:14 a.m. (CDT), weighing in at 7 lbs 11 oz, and stretching to 21.5” long.

Dustin is the guitarist and vocalist with Special Consensus, and comes from a large bluegrass family in Alabama. I’m sure the entire Benson clan is excited to welcome little Elijah to the fold.

Sawyer and Elijah BensonAs is big brother, Sawyer, who is learning how to love a new member of the family.

Congratulations to all the Bensons, and a big bluegrass welcome to Elijah!
