The Civil Wars just released their second album today, and I'm really excited to pick it up. Their debut album, Barton Hollow, was excellent and one of my favorites. 

Last November, the Grammy Award winning duo, Joy Williams and John Paul White abruptly went on hiatus in the middle of their tour, citing, “internal discord and irreconcilable differences of ambition”. Yikes! It didn't look like there would be a future for The Civil Wars. Somehow, the duo put their frustrations and turmoil into their music, even though the two are still not speaking with one another. 

The first single from the album is a great song called, "The One That Got Away". Check out that magic and tension in "The One That Got Away":

How beautifully uncomfortable is that video?!

What do you think of The Civil Wars and "The One That Got Away"? Share your thoughts.
