Categories: Acoustic Sunrise + CD of the Month
WNRN’s Acoustic CD of the Month for September is the self-titled second CD from, The Civil Wars. Joy Williams, and John Paul White, recorded this intimate album before abruptly ending their European tour last fall – and maybe their musical partnership. The album is full of heartache and regret, aching harmonies, and their unique chemistry of collaboration.



Williams and White’s debut. Barton Hollow, won them 2 Grammys and the high expectations of what the future would sound like . This self-titled second collection was written on the road while trying to balance the demands of family, travel and the pressure of two strong voices trying to find their path.

Listen all month for tracks from WNRN’s Acoustic CD of the Month for September, the self-titled release from The Civil Wars, only on Independent Music Radio – WNRN.
