You know they’ve been busy the past few days, but Philip and Caryn Peeples just checked in with this: Their new baby boy, Aidan Merritt Peeples was born on May 6, and Philip says that the whole Peeples clan: Caryn, Aidan, and his big sister, Ava Belle, are “all doing great.” Also this month, Rhett and his bride, Erica did “I do” and “I do too” on an island beach before taking off on a good, long honeymoon.

So what do we have here this year? Thus far, this: two new marriages; one new band; one album in the works; one bouncing baby boy; and maybe best of all, lots of time spent with family, friends, and loved ones. Those who thought 2002 wouldn’t be a good year for the Old 97’s were right. It’s not a good year, it’s a great one. Mazeltov’s all around, and congrats to the Peeples, Miller, Morwood, and Iahn families.
