As promised, our #womancrushwednesday this week is the other half of Bucko and Toad, Kelly Coutu!
Bucko & Toad aka Kenn and Kelly Coutu, is a pop country duo that doubles as a real life, super adorable married couple. Their refreshing approach to country music is rooted in their sense of humor, as evidenced by their band name. They took their childhood nicknames: “Bucko” for Kenn and Kelly’s “Toad” to create a cute and quirky name that represented the pair as a couple as well as their music. We all know the music industry isn’t the easiest one to break into, but together, Kelly and Kenn are determined to enjoy this wild ride together. Banking on Ken’s previous experience as the front man for the rock band Armchair Cynics, his songwriting abilities and Kelly’s singing talents, Bukco and Toad have been recording and performing together, garnering fans, likes and views at every turn. Take a listen to this country lovin’ couples’ song “Frozen in your eyes” below to see what I mean.
They’re just dreamy, aren’t they? Let’s learn a bit more about what it takes to be country’s hottest up and coming couple and duo, below!
What is your definition of romance?
To me romance is the impracticality of life. It’s not practical to set up a dinner table out in the garden with candles and music when there is a kitchen table you could use. It’s the things out of the norm that make life romantic!
What’s the strangest thing someone has done to get your attention?
One time Kenn secretly left a card on the counter at my work, it had a romantic quote on the front but blank inside, I hadn’t seen him in months but I knew it was from him and I knew we would see each other again!
If there was one piece of advice you could give to other men/women out there, what would it be?
Love and Romance is about all about give and take, so if you want it, give as much as you receive.
Describe your love life in one word
How do you keep the romance alive in your relationship?
Communication, being light hearted, and taking time spend with each other outside of the day to day things.
