Country Music Star Mike Denver Opens Up About Becoming a First-Time Father
Mike Denver explained what it was like to be a first-time dad.
Mike and his wife Elizabeth Gannon welcomed their first child Mia last March, just as the Covid-19 pandemic struck.
The country music star said the day Mia was born was the most “exciting” day of her life.
Mike told RSVP Country: ” She had arrived early, she had arrived five or six weeks early and that was a real scare for the system!We were prepared but not prepared.
“TIt was definitely the most exciting, happy and beautiful day of my life. It was without a doubt the most incredible day of all time. ”
Mia was born prematurely and the delivery was even more difficult because due to the restrictions of Covid-19 he could not be in the delivery room with his wife until the very end.
Mike said that one of the biggest surprises of being a first-time dad is how strong you feel for your child.
“You can’t explain it,” he said. “I learned that the love you have for the child is just amazing. There is nothing like it in this world. You would do anything for them. The amount of love you can to have would shock you. “
The Galway native said that while he enjoyed spending so much time with his family during the lockdown, he was eager to hit the road and return to live shows.
“I can’t wait to hit the road again, start recording again, sing and hit the road and see people,” Mike said. “Because the last year and a half has been tough, and I didn’t know if it would ever get back to normal. So hopefully now we’ll see some light at the end of the tunnel and come back and make some great music. soon. “
Throughout the past year, Mike has reflected on the highlights of his career so far.
“The very first gig would have been a highlight, “said Mike.” It’s one of those moments that stays with me.
“Another would record with George Jones in Nashville in May 2008. It was a huge thing to meet George Jones, who is probably known as one of the greatest country singers of all time.”
