Jewel gave birth to son Kase Townes in Texas Monday, her rep confirms to Us Weekly. The newborn weighed in at 7 lbs., 6 oz.

The first time mom, 37, and her hubby Ty Murray, 41, tried for two years to conceive.

"I'm doing really good," Jewel told Us in January. "I found out I was pregnant at the beginning of shooting [Bravo's Platinum Hit], so that was a little hard. I was tired, but other than that I'm good."

She and Murray (they wed in 2008) were "very excited" to become parents. "We can't wait!" she gushed.

In March, the pregnant singer was involved in a scary collision with a fire truck. Fortunately, neither she nor her baby were seriously injured, although she admitted on Twitter she was "real sore and banged up."

So what helped her survive? "One thing I do know is my car saved my and baby's life," Jewel wrote. "Definitely going to get another Cadillac SRX! It absorbed all the damage and kept me safe!"

As it happens, Jewel released Lullaby -- a collection of songs for kids -- back in 2009.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
