Merrin joins big brothers Adain, 7, Caleb, 3, and Ean, 2. Their happy mom and dad were married in 2005, just months after Bo earned second place (Carrie Underwood placed first) on the fourth season of American Idol.
Bo, whose best know for his work in rock and country, is now working on a Christian album. “I’m really trying to bring that Black Crowes/Lenny Kravitz feel to contemporary Christian and I’m not trying to thump people with the Bible,” he told Billboard. “I’m just trying to spread the word about what has helped me through life.”
Bo, 36, has struggled with drug and alcohol problems but has “been sober since October of last year,” he revealed. “I took a retreat and got my head together. I quit drinking so much because it kind of got the best of me.”
In addition to using music as therapy, Bo has developed a second career painting and selling his artwork. “I’ve really been focused on family, my ministry, and what the Lord has for me next.”
What kind of music does Bo do best?
