Chris Martin (Coldplay)
Famous for grandiose arena-rock hits, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin is also a world-class papa. His kids constantly meet up with him on the road, meaning they get to be part of their dad’s globe-trotting musical adventures. Take a look at this time that he brought his son Moses on stage so a sea of adoring fans could wish him a very happy birthday.
In addition to being a huge country star, Dierks Bentley is a total family man that makes time for his kids even while he’s performing. During this hometown show at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, he brought his oldest daughter Evie on stage to help him sing “I’m Thinking of You”. She’s just too cute!
King Khalifa is known for his braggadocious raps and glamourous lifestyle, and now his little prince Sebastian is helping him get some attention for being a dedicated dad. The two are practically inseparable! Just take a look at them exciting the crowd as they make their way to the red carpet at the 2015 Teen Choice Awards.
Tim Foreman (Switchfoot)
Alternative rock mainstays Switchfoot always deliver grungy riffs for headbanging fans, but bassist Tim Foreman has a softer side as well. He likes to give his two little ones a taste of his on-the-road lifestyle by bringing them with him as often as possible while he’s rocking out around the world. Take a look at this cute pic of him with his girls Jett and Layla.
Zac Brown (Zac Brown Band)
Zac Brown Band calls their fan club the Zamily, because everyone at their carnival-style live shows is treated like one big, happy family. But the country-rocker’s actual family is always close to the action, too: just take a look at him clowning around with his kids in between sets.
Jeff Tweedy (Wilco)
Most performers have to make a difficult decision between staying home with their kids and hitting the road. Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy sidestepped that tough call by forming the band Tweedy with his teenage son, Spencer. While we wait for the father-son duo to announce their next move, you can catch Jeff rocking out with his other band Wilco this summer.
