We’ve yet to interview a touring country artist who hasn’t said that the hardest part of their job is being away from family. From Aaron Watson, who sweetly and frequently shares pictures of his family while he’s on the road, to Thomas Rhett, who has really just started his little family with wife Lauren, they all share that bittersweet push-pull of life on the road. But their buddy, The Cadillac Three’s Jaren Johnston, has found a high-tech way of keeping his family close while he tours the world.
In a post on his Instagram page, Jaren shared an image of his new baby, Jude, sound asleep in his crib at home. “Watching the little guy in real time from the road,” he writes. “Thanks @evynm, you are amazing.”
Apparently, Jaren and wife Evyn have a wifi baby cam that allows them to check on their precious little nugget without going into the room.
Sure, it doesn’t take the place of actually being there, but it sure must make Jaren feel a lot closer to home.
The new dad is definitely a country music badass, but when it comes to his son, he’s showing signs of being a complete bucket of mush. He and Even dress their precious baby boy in tiny vintage concert tees and little sneakers, much like daddy.
Jude Johnston made his debut on March 30.
