She was a rock ’n’ roll princess who was offered a record deal at 15 and has since written songs recorded by Faith Hill, Lady A and Eric Paslay.
He is an established country voice and a working man’s songwriter who’s taken six No. 1 hits to the top of the charts. Together, Rose Falcon and Rodney Atkins—married since 2013—are an unstoppable force in life, love and music. And for the first time, they’ve joined creative forces in an official capacity for Rod + Rose. The duo’s first single, ‘Being Here, Being There‘, drops today (20/8) via Curb Records. Listen to the debut track, which was given an exclusive world first play on the BBC Radio 2 Bob Harris Country show, HERE.
Rod + Rose’s first offering merges Atkins’ lean lyricism with Falcon’s pure poetry to introduce a sound that’s steeped in country and roots with harmonies that intertwine his signature grit with her feminine charm. “‘Being Here, Being There’ is our way of saying, ‘for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health,’ and meaning it with every ounce of our heart and soul,” says Atkins of the selection he and Falcon penned with Phil Barton and Seth Mosley.
‘Being Here, Being There’ isn’t the couple’s first collaborative effort. Rod + Rose have been singing side by side for years and share two sons: Ryder and Scout. Most recently, the duo co-wrote several tracks for Atkins’ latest album, Caught Up In The Country, whose Gold-certified title-cut, featuring The Fisk Jubilee Singers, set the record (at the time) for the longest-running single in Billboard Country Airplay history at 57 weeks.
