She's one-third of a slick Aussie country group, while he's the 70s-style rocker fronting his own band but Brooke McClymont and Adam Eckersely have decided to join forces musically.
It means their experience at this year's Tamworth Country Music Festival has changed a lot.
With their own bands to promote and now a new record together, the real-life couple had to hire a German au pair to look after their five-year-old daughter, Tiggy.
"I think she's had a baptism of fire. She started working with us the week before Tamworth," Eckersely told AAP.
The pair are used to coming to the NSW city to promote their music, separately.
McClymont has been visiting for 24 years and on the receiving end of 10 Golden Guitar awards alongside her sisters in the McClymonts.
The Adam Eckersely Band was formed in 2010 and took home the new talent Golden Guitar in 2015.
So finding time to even just be a couple was hard enough at first, let alone fitting in time to work together.
"In the first few years of marriage we didn't see each other a lot. Brooke was touring America and I was back home and then we were touring America together," Eckersely said.
"But marriage did keep us together. If we had just been boyfriend and girlfriend with the amount of times we were away it would have been too easy to go 'you know what, this is too hard'."
"Marriage really was the binding key that kept us through those difficult times together," McClymont added.
It's this candour that the pair have poured into their music, writing and recording their first album together, having finally found a window in their busy schedules.
"This project basically was all about timing because Brooke had a little bit of down time with her sisters having babies," Eckersely said.
"We didn't have a lot of time to muck about so from the time we decided to do it to having the album finished was about five and a half weeks."
The first single they released, Train Wreck, is a good indicator of their honest style. It addresses the question of whether or not they'd have regrets if they happened to split up.
"This song is so us. We're very realistic about it, that's totally us. We're very honest with each other. We tell it like it is," McClymont said.
*The album, Adam & Brooke, will be released on February 9 and the pair will tour the country from then.
