Congratulations are in order for Rodney Atkins and Rose Falcon, who married this weekend past weekend. The duo of country singers married on Sunday, November 10, in an intimate ceremony on Captiva Island, Florida.
Among the 20 guests in attendance were Atkins’ son Elijah, who served as Best Man. Additionally, Charles Hutchins, the founder of the Holston United Methodist Home for Children (where Atkins lived prior to adoption), officiated the ceremony.
The wedding programs were made from CD cases, while female guests received a handmade bracelet. The male guests received custom baseball guests identical to Atkins’. Prior to the ceremony, the guests spent November 9th fishing in the waters surrounding Captiva Island.

Last year, we introduced a new annual feature on Keepin’ it Country – Ones to Watch. Our predictions were pretty spot on last year, with Dustin Lynch and JT Hodges quickly becoming popular with country music fans. This year it’s time for a little love for the ladies – and our first 2013 One to Watch: Rose Falcon.
Rose, a singer-songwriter signed to Show Dog Universal, is the writer behind Country Strong’s hauntingly beautiful “Give Into Me,” and has been named one of CMT’s Next Women of Country. Rose, a songwriter just like her father, has been praised by the legendary Bon Jovi as a “true artist” and “an old soul in the voice of a beautiful young lady.” She recently released her single “If Love Had A Heart” to country radio, and she’s definitely one to watch out for in 2013.
In a country music world where males dominate airplay and it’s hard for a new female to break out, Rose is one you will be cheering for. With her talented writing and pretty vocals, she has what it takes to hold her own at country radio.

Showdog-Universal’s newest artist Rose Falcon may have just released her 4-song EP “19th Avenue” today, but she’s already made a fan in a heavyweight. Bon Jovi took to his Facebook page today to sing her praises, asking his fans to check out Rose’s EP, which you can check out on iTunes here.
Rose is a New York City native who grew up with her singer-songwriter father after losing her mother to cancer when she four years old. When she was ten, they relocated to Nashville, Tennessee and Rose began writing poetry and her own songs at only twelve years old. Now, the singer-songwriter has followed her father’s footsteps and was signed to Showdog-Universal in 2011. Her songs have been cut by Faith Hill, Lady Antebellum, and fellow Showdog artist Jessie James.
