One more son for the Dixie Chicks and they could start a boy band.

Emily Robison, one-third of the country supergroup, gave birth to a boy, Charles Augustus Robison, Monday in a San Antonio hospital, a publicist for the singer tells PEOPLE.com.

Little Charles was born at 10:06 p.m., weighed 8 lbs. 13oz., and measured 21 in.

The father is Robison's singer-songwriter husband, Charlie Robison, and Charles is their first child.

"Both mother and son are healthy and resting at home in San Antonio," says a statement from the couple.

The new mother, 30, sings and plays guitar and banjo for the Grammy-winning country music trio, whose hits include "Wide Open Spaces" and "Goodbye Earl" and who recently released their new album "Home." Robison was understandably absent last week when the Chicks were honored with a Country Music Association Award for vocal group of the year.

Her sister chicks include her actual blood sister, Martie Maguire, and Natalie Maines, who last year at age 26 gave birth to her first child -- also a boy, Jackson Slade Pasdar. His father is Maines's second husband, actor Adrian Pasdar.
