ARRINGTON, Tenn. (AP) -- Justin Moore is riding high with his first No. 1 song, "Small Town USA," and early next year, he'll have another first to celebrate.

His wife, Kate, is expecting their first child — a girl — in February.

The couple plans to name the baby Ella Cole. Moore explains that his middle name is Cole and his wife likes the name Ella.

Kate appears as Moore's love interest in the "Small Town USA" video.

Moore has just released his third single, "Backwoods," off his self-titled debut album. He will join Brad Paisley and Miranda Lambert on the road starting in January for the second leg of Paisley's "American Saturday Night tour."
