Taylor Hawkins’ wife Alison Hawkins and their children are not only a part of his personal life. They were also an important part of his career, contributing to his professional success as a singer. Hawkins wrote his 2019 album Get the Money, inspired by his life as a suburban father and doting husband.
Here’s everything you should know about her position and family life! Taylor Hawkins wrote songs about his wife Hawkins and released his album Get the Money on November 8, 2019.
The ten-song collection is the third album from his band Taylor Hawkins and Coattail Riders. In a November 2019 interview with Billboard, Hawkins shared that the new project was inspired by his life as a suburban father.

But the unforeseen has happened and he admittedly can’t write about being young and going to clubs. So he started writing about being a family man. He described the content of the album as “a kind of wink”. Hawkins explained that the “I really screwed up” song is about a man who should always be the one who apologizes.
“Kissing the Ring” is about a man “trying to get” his girlfriend or spouse. In short, the Foo Fighters drummer says half of the songs on the album are about his wife — “the good, the bad, and the ugly.” He even featured his wife in the “I Really Fucked Up” music video.
Taylor Hawkins Made For Kids One of the hits from the Middle Kid album was “Middle Kid.” Hawkins revealed in an interview with Joe Daly that he wrote the song for his daughter Annabelle. Taylor Hawkins with his middle child daughter Annabelle in 2019.
By his own account, the 49-year-old originally wrote the song for his oldest son around 2013. He owned music for years, but never found the right lyrics. But when he finally wrote the lyrics, his son despised the music. “If you write a song about me, it has to sound like Metallica!” the son asked. Hawkins then sought approval from his longtime friend Josh Homme to keep the song on the album. But to his dismay, he received another objection.
Meanwhile, his daughter approaches him and complains why he doesn’t write a song about her. So he thought about it and finally came up with new lyrics. On top of that, Hawkins even featured his daughter, son and their family dog Francis in the music video. Taylor Hawkins’ Life with Wife and Children Hawkins married his longtime girlfriend in 2005. While the details of their marriage remain shrouded in mystery, it is known that they have three children – son Oliver and daughters Annabelle and Everly.
