NASHVILLE (AP) — Rodney Atkins has married singer-songwriter Rose Falcon.

They were married on the beach on Captiva Island, Florida, before 20 guests on Sunday.

Atkins’ son, Elijah, was his best man. The officiant was Charles Hutchens, who founded the Holston United Methodist Home for Children, where Atkins lived as an infant until he was adopted.

When asked about a honeymoon, the couple say, “Our life is a honeymoon.”

They are back in Nashville with plans to continue their “Most Hits For The Money” tour.
