Bo Bice and wife have a baby boy

Bo Bice was the American Idol runner up who lost to country singer Carrie Underwood in 2005. Bo is a Southern rock style singer with a strong voice and a great personality. My husband and I were rooting for him and were disappointed to see Underwood win, although she definitely has talent and went on to greatness. Bo is an amazing performer who commands the stage, yet he comes across as incredibly down to earth and genuine. I remember Bo joking in one of the taped segments on the show that he didn’t quit his job when he got accepted as a contestant because he wanted to make sure he was able to collect unemployment – and he did.

Bo and his wife Caroline Fisher had their second child, a baby boy named Caleb, on Tuesday. Bo and Caroline also have a nearly three year-old son, Aiden:

American Idol season 4 runner-up Bo Bice and his wife Caroline Fisher welcomed a baby boy, Caleb, on Tuesday, his rep tells exclusively.

Bice, 32, and Fisher wed in July 2005 in Helena, Alabama. Their son Aidan was born in September 2005.

“[Caleb] is a good biblical name,” Bice said at the American Idol finale show in May. “We stuck with that with both kids – good Irish and good biblical names… We’re just blessed to have such a beautiful family.”

The rocker, who lives in Nashville, released the album See the Light in October 2007.

Bo’s career post-Idol has been marred by health problems that he’s soldiered through. He had severe intestinal problems which led to repeated hospitalizations during his 2006 tour. In late 2006 he underwent two emergency surgeries to correct the problem and is now doing better. His 2005 album See the Light went gold, although RCA has since dropped him. Bo recorded the title track to the March, 2007 film Blades of Glory, and released another album, See the Light, on his own label in October of last year. The first video from that album, Witness, was at number 1 on VH1′s top 20 for three weeks in December.

In February, 2008, Bo went to Kuwait and Afghanistan to perform for US troops stationed there, and he plans to go back in the Fall.

Congratulations to Bo and Fischer on their new arrival! He seems like a hard working guy who deserves his success. We hope he continues to have good health, a successful music career and a very happy family life.

    I was rooting for Bo to win too, and it was a great disappointment to me that I had tickets to one of the concerts they do after the season is over, and the “idols” hit the city I was in on Monday, and a taped notice on the door said that Bo had been hospitalized on Saturday.

    Love the names Caleb and Aidan! Congratulations to them both!

  2. Jen (the other one) says:

    I just love this guy. His new album is really, really good…actual southern rock, instead of the foofy pop crap his old label made him do for the debut album.

    Congrats, Bo!

  3. Syko says:

    Good to know, other Jen, I was not that thrilled with his first album, after all those weeks of being thrilled by him on Idol. I may have to give this second one a try.

    Congrats to Bo and his wife! His version of Vehicle is one of my favorite songs.

    I like their matching hair styles in that picture!

    Congrats Bo, you and your music are awesome.

  6. enchantress says:

    His wife looks like his fraternal twin sister – same coloring, same facial shape and similar features, same hair. How boring! Why do so many famous people pick lookalike mates?

    I live in Nashville and met Bo through a friend a week ago — I had no idea he was the American Idol runner-up. The next day, I saw him in the paper and realized it was the same guy. He’s an incredibly down-to-earth and “real” guy. Then I watched his YouTube vids and realized he’s a great performer as well.

  8. snarkyspice says:

    Just a thought enchantress, but maybe his first priority in picking a mate was finding someone he loved, as opposed to entertaining you.

    How boring!

  9. Not that I’m impressed a lot, but this is more than I expected when I found a link on Delicious telling that the info is quite decent. Thanks.

    Congrats Bo! Just want to say I never bothered to watch AI before you came on…you’re incredibly talented. Plus, i’m so happy you’ve gone back to playing YOU’RE kind of music (instead of the “pop” stuff the label wanted you to play) Can’t wait to buy your CD and listen to some awesome music!

  11. I savored your article and am saving the feed for future posts. Thanks!
