Listen: The Civil Wars

Listen: Poison & Wine, Barton Hallow, Safe and Sound

Most people’s  introduction to the folk duo that comprises The Civil Wars was their beautifully haunting song from “The Hunger Games” soundtrack, “Safe and Sound” which they wrote with Taylor Swift. But they have been making music together since 2009. Joy Williams and John Paul White met at a music studio in Nashville in 2008, which is also where the name of the group came from. White was driving around town, looking at the Civil War monuments and thought about the wars people face in their lives. Once they released their debut album, “Barton Hallow”, they were everywhere, performing on late night shows, being featured on hit television shows like “Grey’s Anatomy” and “The Vampire Diaries”, and won two Grammys. At the height of their career, they announced three weeks ago that the group was going on hiatus due to “internal discord and irreconcilable differences of ambition”. Hopefully, they work out their issues because they truly are an amazing, talented band.

  2. Howdy! I realize this is somewhat off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does running a well-established website such as yours take a massive amount work?

    I am completely new to writing a blog but I do write in my journal everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my personal experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!
