When your job is to release new music and go on tour it can be hard for families to spend time together. This is hard for any musician big or small to try to divide their time between their family and their work. But some musicians are lucky that they are able to bring their family on tour with them. And even though tour life must be difficult for parents to work and watch their kids, we have found ten musicians who bring their kids on tour with them. So keep reading to see if your favorite musicians bring their families with them as they travel across the country!
9 Amanda Palmer
Amanda Palmer is an experimental musician and performer. And since she and her husband, bestselling author Neil Gaiman, welcomed a baby boy, Anthony, in 2015 Palmer has to now balance being a mom and a musician. Seen in the picture is Palmer performing at one of her many concerts. As Palmer plays the piano she is also holding onto her little man. Anthony is lucky to have the best seat in the house as his mom plays to sold-out crowds.
And we would be smiling if we were him too!
8 Keith Urban
County megastar, Keith Urban, has two beautiful daughters with wife, actress Nicole Kidman. With both Urban and Kidman in the entertainment industry, their family is always on the move to go to the next spot Kidman is filming at, or they are on tour with Urban. When Urban is on tour it has to be nice to bring his whole family with him so he can spend time with them and to have his daughters see what he does for a living. And touring the country with your parents can’t be that bad when they get a great RV.
7 Jason Aldean
When Jason Aldean goes on tour, he needs to get a big RV for him and his whole family. Aldean and his now ex-wife had two daughters, Keeley and Kendyl, together. And since marrying American Idol contestant, Brittany Kerr, Kerr and Aldean have two kids together, Memphis and Navy, as well.
Adlean has even said in an interview that their “goal [is to] be out there as a family so the kids can experience that life and see their dad perform." And we agree with Aldean it is important to spend as much time as you can with your family.
6 Justin Timberlake
Icon Justin Timberlake and actress Jessica Biel have a son, Silas, together. But when Timberlake has to work that doesn’t stop him from spending time with his family. When Timberlake was on his Man of the Woods world tour he made sure to bring his whole family out to support him. Timerblake even tweeted “Goin’ on tour. #MOTWTOUR,” with a picture he posted holding hands with his whole family.
We love the fact the Timberlake and Beil decided on bringing the family on tour so Timberlake doesn't miss out on any moments with his son.
5 Kelly Clarkson
Kelly Clarkson is not just an amazing performer she is also the mother of River and Remington. So when Clarkson has to work and go on tour to promote her latest album she always brings her family with her. Clarkson even said an in an interview that “the last time I toured, I was trying to be supermom and a pop star at the same time and that was really hard.” We hope with the support of her husband, talent manager Brandon Blackstock, that Clarkson doesn’t feel stressed out anymore, especially since she now has two kids!
4 Adam Levine
Adam Levine, who is the lead singer in the band Maroon 5, and his supermodel wife, Behati Prinsloo, have two daughters, Dusty and Gio, together. With two little girls, Levine always makes sure that he is able to take his family with him when Maroon 5 is touring.
Levine has even said in the past that touring now he needs a “family bus” for him and his girls. But we can only imagine how much fun his kids are having on tour. And they have to think it is better than any summer camp they could have gone too!
3 Beyonce & Jay-Z
Beyonce and Jay-Z are a powerhouse celebrity couple who have three beautiful children together. And since both of them are musicians who tour together, you know that they bring their three little ones with them. So of course when this duo went on their On the Run Tour they brought the whole family. And not only do the kids get to enjoy traveling the country, but they were also even brought on stage sometimes while their parents were performing. So it can easily be said that it is the best choice for the Carter family to make bringing the family on tour a reality.
2 Carrie Underwood
Superstar Carrie Underwood is an amazing country singer and Mom of two little boys, Isaiah and Jacob. Underwood loves going on summer tours due to the fact that her hockey player husband, Mike Fisher, can help with the kids when she is performing. Underwood loves the fact that she is able to bring her family on tour with her and even stated that “how many people get to take their children to work with them?"
And since Underwood knows that she is lucky to bring her family to work with her she never complains about being tired when it comes to performing and taking care of her kids.
Multi-award singer, Pink and her husband, professional motocross racer Carey Hart, have two adorable children, Willow and Jameson, together. And since having kids Pink has not slowed down when it comes to her music career. In an interview, Pink stated that “If I had nannies raising my kids and just wanted to be a rock star and party all the time, I wouldn’t be successful and I wouldn’t be happy.” And we applaud Pink for wanting to be hands-on with her kids and bring them on tour with her. We think it is important for her to be able to raise her kids how she wants to.
