The one with some good music.

Just wanted to share my current musical obsession with you guys - The Civil Wars. I have been a fan of Joy Williams since I was a preteen (and she was blonde), but nothing could have prepared me for her current project. She has teamed up with the handsome (read: Johnny Depp lookalike) John Paul White. Together they have such chemistry (you can definitely tell that they are friends after the show ends for the night) and powerful voices.

They have a free download of their live show at Eddie's Attic, and their new album, Barton Hollow, was just released. Go download both - you won't be disappointed - promise!

Last weekend my friend, Ashley, and I caught their show here in Virginia at Jammin Java. We were completely blown away. At one point they did a cover of "You Are My Sunshine"...chills.

Here are a couple of photos I snapped at the concert...

My hot date ;)

I'll leave you with their video for Poison & Wine - enjoy & have a great weekend!

That is all.


  1. I just recently began listening to the Civil Wars. They are brilliant. Thanks for putting the download on my radar!!!

  2. I just heard this interview of the Civil Wars on NPR the other day in the car and fell in love instantly, and then I saw your status about the concert. I'm insanely jealous that you got to see them live! :)

  3. Oh my goodness, I just stumbled upon your lovely blog and it was so wonderful to see you mention Joy Williams...I adore her too, and this new song is amazing...I LOVE it!!! Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you have a Wonderful Weekend!

  4. I'm always looking for new music/bands, and this was my first listen of the Civil Wars. They have such a nice sound - thanks for sharing! I love your pictures, too - I haven't been to a good show in awhile, and this makes me want to!

  5. He DOES look like Mr. Depp!
