GOODBYE: the civil wars - you are my sunshine

the civil wars - you are my sunshine
though they've been on indefinite hiatus since 2012, the amazing vocal duo of the civil wars officially broke up today. it's a shame that singer joy williams and john paul white weren't able to reconcile their issues, so as a parting gift, they're sharing a free mp3 download of a rare vinyl cover of 'you are my sunshine' to their fans. here's what they had to say of the decision:

Joy Williams
“I am saddened and disappointed by the ending of this duo, to say the very least. JP is a tremendous musician, and I will always be grateful for the music we were able to create together. I sincerely hope that ‘You Are My Sunshine’ will be accepted as a token of my gratitude for every single person that has supported our duo throughout the years. I’m so thankful and my heart is full. Looking ahead, I’m excited to share the music that I am writing and recording in the midst of this difficult transition. I’ve loved being back in the studio, and have missed performing live. I look forward to seeing you soon.”

John Paul
“I would like to express sincere thanks to all who were a part of the arc of The Civil Wars—from the beginning, to the end, and all points in between. My deep appreciation goes out to all who supported, disseminated, and enjoyed the music. Whatever shape or form the next chapter takes, thanks for being a large part of this one.”
