"Big" Kenny Alphin, the 6'3" half of the Nashville duo Big & Rich, and his wife Christiev Alphin, had a baby boy Wednesday, PEOPLE has learned.

Lincoln William Holiday Alphin was born around 7:45 a.m. Mother and child are doing fine, according to their rep. This is the couple's first child.

Alphin, 42, and his musical partner, John Rich, hit the big time two years ago with "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)," from their debut album Horse of a Different Color. Then there are their colorful outfits: At a recent Florida concert, Rich sported white rhinestone cowboy duds while Alphin wore a funky feathered hat and black T-shirt that proclaimed him to be the "universal ambassador of love."

In 2001, Alphin and Rich were among the founders of a new country movement called the "Muzik Mafia," responsible for nurturing such artists as Cowboy Troy and Gretchen Wilson, whose hit "Redneck Woman" was also co-written by Rich.

Big & Rich's second album, Comin' To Your City, arrives in stores Nov. 15.
