Eli Young Band frontman Mike Eli and his wife Kacey are expecting their first child August 2.  It’s a girl, and Mike has been doing research to prepare for the impending arrival.

“She and her mom got me a couple books that I am reading, and it can be a little overwhelming,” Mike tells People.  “I recommend reading them for the basics and what to expect during pregnancy, but they can’t teach you to be a good dad and a good partner.  That’s up to me to figure out.”

Now that he’s about to be a dad, the desire to get home from the road is even stronger for Mike.

He says, “I can only imagine what it will be like once the baby is born.  It will be extremely hard to leave them.”

Look for Eli Young Band at this Sunday’s ACM Awards.  They’re up for three trophies including Top Vocal Group.  The show airs at 8 p.m. Eastern time on CBS.
