NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Country music star Brad Paisley has found inspiration for songs in some unexpected places. So why not the name of his second child?

While a guest on National Public Radio's "A Prairie Home Companion" Saturday, Paisley told host Garrison Keillor that his wife, actress Kimberly Williams-Paisley, dreamed they had a boy and they named him Jasper.

So, when their son was born April 17, they named him Jasper Warren Paisley.

The baby's middle name comes from Paisley's grandfather, who gave Brad his first guitar.

Jasper Warren joins older brother William Huckleberry, who was born in February 2007.

Last month, Paisley won best male vocalist at the Academy of Country Music Awards. He is also the reigning Country Music Association male vocalist of the year.
