Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill and his wife Jesse Baylin gave birth to a baby girl on Wednesday. Named Violet Marlowe Followill, the baby was born at 4:01 pm in Nashville, weighing 7 pounds, 13 ounces.

The couple announced they were expecting earlier this year and were married in 2009. This year, Kings of Leon remained rather quiet musically, but bassist Jared Followill got engaged to his girlfriend Martha Patterson this past April, while frontman Caleb Followill and his wife Lily Aldridge gave birth to their first child in June.

Back in September, Jared told Rolling Stone that Kings of Leon were in the beginning stages of plotting the follow-up to their 2010 record, Come Around Sundown. "We're just trying to have fun with it and just have a relaxed-type thing," he said. "We're just meeting with producers and stuff. I think we're going to try and start it this year. We'll see."

Baylin, a singer-songwriter as well, released her third album, Little Spark, earlier this year.

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
