"Dixie Pearl Followill was born at 1am on June 21, 2012. 7lbs 11 oz, 22 inches," the band's rep tells Rolling Stone. "Mom, Dad and baby are happy, healthy and enjoying their new addition."

After a rocky summer in 2011, settling down seems to be a priority for Kings of Leon. This past April, Caleb's brother Jared got engaged to Martha Patterson, proposing at his Nashville home.

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
