ON THE ROAD: The Civil Wars

The Civil Wars are nothing short of a match made in Americana heaven. Joy Williams and John Paul White, both with previous solo careers, have teamed up to form the talented duo after meeing at a song-writing camp. Their unique blend of styles and beautiful, haunting lyrics have grabbed the attention of country superstar Taylor Swift, who called their music "exquisite." The song "Poison & Wine" has been featured on "Grey's Anatomy" and iTunes has recognized them as "Best New Singer-Songwriters." Paste Magazine has also featured them in "Best of What's Next," so it's no surprise that their fan base is quickly growing. I first heard about The Civil Wars when they were the musical guests on Jay Leno. I was blown away. The simplicity of the performance and their tight harmonies left me wanting more. Come to find out, their full-length album, "Barton Hollow," drops tomorrow, February 1st. That's not all. They may also be coming to a city near you!
