Jason and Mackenzie Wood, both members of North Carolina’s Wood Family Tradition, are celebrating the birth of their first child earlier this afternoon.
Ruby Dallas Wood was born at 12:41 p.m. She came in at 7.7 lbs and 18”.
Ruby is descended from bluegrass royalty, as her great-grandfather is A.L. Wood, a legendary banjo player and songwriter also from the Statesville area. Let’s hope she continues this long family legacy of bluegrass music.
Congratulations to Jason, Mackenzie and all the Wood family, and a big bluegrass welcome to little Ruby!
