Rascal Flatts’ Joe Don Rooney Plans Romantic New Year’s Eve

Holiday Tradition Involves Whisking His Wife Away for a Little Getaway

Let’s give some brownie points to hubby and dad Joe Don Rooney. The Rascal Flatts’ guitarist is taking to time to celebrate the new year, but you won’t find him watching the ball drop from the comforts of his home.

He’s loading up and whisking his gorgeous wife Tiffany Fallon away for a little holiday getaway.

Husbands of the world, take note.

For the busy couple, it’s a time-honored tradition they refuse to let slide.

“For years, Tiffany and I have been able to go on a little vacay together and share New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day together somewhere special,” Rooney said in an interview provided by the band’s record label. “We’ve done it for a lot of years now, and we’ll probably continue that tradition this year, until the kids get quite a bit older and can stay up that late. We like to give that time to ourselves.”

And there’s no better time than this moment of the year, when it’s all about the champagne toast and a smooch with the one you love when the clock strikes 12.

“It’s important, I think, for a couple to find the time to spend together when they can, especially in this crazy business when you travel so much or are gone so much,” Rooney said. “It’s just something we love to do. It’s something I definitely love to do with my wife and love all over her into the new year.”

This seems like a recipe for a happy 2015 for one of country music’s most adorable couples.
