Flowers -- who released his first solo CD, Flamingo, last fall -- is already father to sons Gunnar, 19 months, and Ammon, 3.

During an interview with London's Daily Mail last September, the 29-year-old rocker -- who wed Munblowsky in 2005 -- contemplated taking a break from music to focus on fatherhood.

"I love music, but I want to spend more time with my children," he explained. "I'd like to be around when they start school."

After all, the family man relied heavily on his sons' opinions before releasing his album in September 2010.

"'Crossfire' is my son Ammon's favorite," he told Rolling Stone of the album's first single. "Kids can always pick the hits."

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
