Welcome Jedediah Slaughter

Jedediah Smith Slaughter born 1/13/16Shannon and Heather Slaughter are celebrating this afternoon’s birth of their second child, Jedediah Smith Slaughter. Shannon says that they will call him Jed.

He came in at 2:57 p.m. (CST) weighing 7 lbs, 13 oz, and stretching to 20.5”. Shannon is probably already fitting him for a football helmet!

Mom and baby are reported to be doing well at the hospital in Birmingham, AL, and big sister, Rae, is delighted with her little brother.

Now with two little Slaughters at home, Heather will no longer be traveling with the band, now billed as Shannon Slaughter & County Clare. She will, however, guest on their new album with recording scheduled to begin in March.

Congratulations to Heather and Shannon, and a big Bluegrass Today welcome to Jed!
