Platinum country recording artist Rodney Atkins and singer-songwriter Rose Falcon are already partners in life, and now they are partners in music as well, as they team up to form a new duo, Rod + Rose. Their first joint effort single, “Being Here, Being There,” drops today (Aug. 20) via Curb Records.
Married since 2013, the two have a sound steeped in country and roots with harmonies that intertwine his signature grit with her feminine charm. Their new single is an ode to the devotion of that friend who has your back through life’s highs and lows.
“This song is about being, and having, that friend who celebrates with you during the highs and isn’t afraid to get in the trenches with you during the lows,” says Falcon. “We recently went through a year of feeling like there were way more lows than highs, and when you go through one difficult scenario after another, you begin to question everything. It can be hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but if you have that person you can count on to walk through life with you, it’s a game changer. When one is down, the other picks up the slack, and vice-versa. We know how lucky we are to have each other, now more than ever.”
“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, they 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. The two plan to share more new music in the months to come.
