Idol love affair

Monday, August 31, 2009

Convincing country music star Brooke McClymont that he was the man of her dreams was not easy for highly rated Australian Idol contender Adam Eckersley.

When then 16-year-old Brooke, now one-third of popular and successful country music group The McClymonts, rode her bicycle past 17-year-old Adam's family home in Grafton, NSW, the long-haired teenager would yell from his verandah, "I'm going to marry you one day Brooke McClymont!"

Pedalling even faster because of her embarrassment, an unimpressed Brooke would yell back, "In your dreams, Mullethead" – a reference to Adam's hair style, his pride and joy at the time.

Now after travelling a route so circuitous Cupid must be giddy, they will be married on the rural property of Adam's parents in October.

Between the barbs from a bike and the decision to spend their lives together, Brooke, now 28, and Adam chase separate careers before bringing their tempestuous relationship to a loving conclusion.

"I'm so glad we didn't get together when we were 16 or 17. It might not have worked out," Adam says.

"Neither of us intended being with other musicians because we like to keep things separate," Brooke adds. "But now we have made the decision, it's the best one we have ever made."
