Abbott becomes a father

Friday, May 5, 2017 – Josh Abbott of Josh Abbott Band and his girlfriend, Taylor Parnell, welcomed Emery Farryn Abbott this morning.

Born Friday, May 5, around 1 a.m. in Austin, Emery Farryn Abbott weighed 6 pounds, 13 ounces and measured 19 inches long.

The name Emery Farryn means "brave adventure." "We wanted to do something similar with a girl name to how my brother named his daughter Eisley Dawn, which means 'cheerful beginnings'...The word 'brave' is a word I used to describe Taylor in a song I wrote for her, 'I'm Your Only Flaw,' on the new album coming out this year,' said Abbott.

Abbott's band has released four full-length CDs and an EP since 2008. His last disc, "Front Row Seat," chronicled his split from his wife. He received some airplay with "Wasn't That Drunk," which featured Carly Pearce, now signed to Big Machine.

The best two tracks are the opening title cut and the sweetly sentimental ballad that closes the set. Abbott kicks it off with the Erik Dylan, Troy Cartwright and Jon Randall tune about the constraint of city living ("Well, the downtown streets never got me where I was going") as compared to the preferred life on the ...
CD review - Catching Fire Releasing five albums and two EPs since 2008, the normally prolific Josh Abbott Band returns more to its roots after exploring new, more Nashville-type sound over the last two albums. This self-released effort shows maturity and confidence by remembering who they are and expanding their base at the same time. With the title cut, "Catching Fire," co-written by Abbott, serving as a bridge between their past musical exploration and their rootsy Texas sound, it is his distinctive voice ...
