Welcome Magnolia Belle Hess

Clay and Samantha Hess are celebrating this weekend, as their daughter, Magnolia Belle, was born on Friday night (11/16) at 8:04 p.m.

Miss Magnolia (Little Maggie?) came in at 7 lbs 1.5 oz, stretching out to 20” long.

She is their first child, though Clay has an adult son, Brennan (age 18), who performs with him in the Clay Hess Band, another daughter Carolina (age 20), and a young son Dayne (9).

Now that this minor real-life detail has been successfully accomplished, Clay and his group will start in recording their debut album over the Winter.

Congratulations to Clay and Sam, and a hearty Bluegrass Today welcome to Magnolia!
