Newlyweds Paul McDonald and Nikki Reed record duet: Listen here!

There’s nothing like young love.

In “Now That I’ve Found You” a song sung by season 10 American Idol contestant Paul McDonald and his brand-new wife, Twilight actress Nikki Reed, the duo offer up a sweet ode to romance.

With McDonald writing the melody and Reed penning the lyrics, the song isn’t stand-out memorable, but it sure is a nice treat and makes for some easy listening, making me think of picnics in the park and summer walks. The bluegrass-feeling tune (loving that harmonica!) stays in McDonald’s folk and country wheelhouse, with Reed providing some welcome back-up.

Take a listen below:

The first of many collaborations for the pair? Reed told Ryan Seacrest this morning,  “[Paul]’s really supportive and encourages everything, so he wants to be a super team. I’m a little more shy. We’ve done some open mic’s together. I probably will end up doing it.”

Readers: Thoughts? Who else is curious to hear more collaborations between the duo? How does this compare to his work with The Grand Magnolias?
