Preston Brust has met the love of his life.

The LOCASH star welcomed his first child with wife Kristen on Tuesday, Jan. 5, in Nashville, Tennessee, his rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

Daughter Love Lily Brust was born weighing 7 lbs., 7 oz. She measured 18½ inches.

“Love has changed our whole world,” the couple tell PEOPLE.

The “I Love This Life” singer and Kristen chose their baby girl’s middle name as a tribute to Kristen’s grandmother, but Love’s first name also has a special place in their heart — and on the radio!

“The OB/GYN thought it was such a unique name,” the proud new parents share.

“As she finished for the night and headed to her car, she turned on the radio only to hear LOCASH’s hit single ‘I Love This Life.’ It was such a jaw-dropping moment that she not only had just delivered Love Lily Brust, but proof that this name was a perfect fit.”

Brust and his LOCASH counterpart, Chris Lucas, released their I Love This Life EP in October and will be touring throughout 2016. The title track is currently at No. 3 on the country charts.
