In some ways, music doesn't get much more modest or minimalist than it is in the hands of, three time Grammy Award winning due, The Civil Wars, comprised of California-to-Nashville transplant Joy Williams and her Alabaman co-songwriter, John Paul White. The Civil Wars have won Best Song Written for Visual Media at the 55th annual Grammy Awards for their collaboration with Taylor swift and T Bone Burnett on "Safe and Sound" from THE HUNGER GAMES soundtrack. "Safe and Sound" was also nominated for a 2013 Golden Globe Award. Following their critically acclaimed and certified RIAA Gold debut album, BARTON HOLLOW, The Civil Wars will release their highly anticipated, self-titled second album on August 6th. Charlie Peacock was once again at the helm as producer for the album.
