This Father's Day, we're checking in on some of country music's biggest stars to talk about dear old dad. Some stars pay tribute to their own fathers while others explain what it's like to be a father themselves. Here's a rundown of what we found:
-- Brad Paisley has no clue what his family is doing for him this Father's Day, and he likes it that way. Brad tells ABC News Radio, "That's the beauty of Father's Day. I don't have to plan it."
As for his ideal Father's Day, Brad prefers a low key celebration. He says he prefers "just being at home and going out to eat or picking up dinner and sitting around the house."
-- Jason Aldean is often away on the road, so he's known as the fun parent to his two daughters, ages nine and four. Jason's pretty tight with his girls, but he leaves most of the disciplinary action up to his wife.
"When I get home, I'm kind of the cool parent because I just kind of take up for them and save the day," Jason says. So, what does his wife think of this arrangement. Jason admits, "She hates me for that, but they love me for it. That's what counts."
-- Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts and his wife Allison are expecting their second child in just a few months. It will be their first boy, and Jay looks forward to having another man in the house.
He says, "Even my dog is a female. I'm kind of outnumbered. So, I'm thrilled to have a boy coming along in a couple of months."
Jay and Allison are planning to name their son Dylan Jay DeMarcus. He'll join big sister Madeline, who was born December 17, 2010.
-- Keith Urban will be celebrating this Father's day with his two daughters Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret. He loves everything about being a father. Keith says, "The first thing is probably just having someone call you dad. I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh! I’m her dad! That’s amazing.’"
As his girls have gotten older, Keith has grown to appreciate what makes each daughter unique. He says, "The different personalities that our two daughters have, that’s amazing."
-- Little Big Town's Phillip Sweet will spend this Father's day with his four-year-old daughter Penelopi. She's really into fairy tales these days, and Phillip tells ABC News Radio everything is just magical with Penelopi.
"I'm her Prince Charming, and I just relish in it," Phillip says. "I love being daddy and the rock for her. She's the thing that I wake up in the morning, and I can't wait to see her little face."
-- The Band Perry's Reid Perry pays tribute to the Perry patriarch Steve this Father's Day. He started out booking his kids in venues around the country, and Mr. Perry makes sure the band gets where they're going on time.
Reid says, "He's actually moved on now to making sure we are where we need to be because we just don't even look at the calendar"
Reid's sister Kimberly adds that their dad hasn't given up his day job back home either. She says, "He's a pediatrician, a baby doctor, over in Greenville, TN. So, he has to man the fort a lot."
