NASHVILLE, Nov. 2 (UPI) -- The wife of the "Big" half of country music's Big & Rich -- Kenny Alphin -- gave birth in Nashville Wednesday to a baby boy.

It is the first child for the 6-foot-3 singer and his wife Christine, People magazine reported.

Lincoln William Holiday Alphin was born around 7:45 a.m., the couple's rep told People.

Alphin, 42, and his musical partner, John Rich, hit the big time two years ago with "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)," from their debut album "Horse of a Different Color."

Alphin and Rich are credited with kick-starting a new country movement called the "Muzik Mafia" -- Musically Artistic Friends in Alliance -- which includes Cowboy Troy and Gretchen Wilson, whose hit "Redneck Woman" was co-written by Rich.

Big & Rich's second album, "Comin' To Your City," arrives in stores Nov. 15.
