By on July 1, 2013


The One That Got Away,” the new single from The Civil Wars, is the #1 most added song at Triple A Radio upon release and debuted at #30 at the BDS Triple A Chart after only six days of airplay. Additionally, the music video for the song has been added at both VH1 and CMT. Created by 1504 Pictures, “The One That Got Away (Studio Cut)” provides a special behind-the-scene view into the duo’s dynamic while recording their highly anticipated sophomore self-titled album, which will be released August 6 on Sensibility Music/Columbia Records.

 Released June 11, “The One That Got Away” has received widespread critical praise. USA Today calls it a “…bluesy, pining single,” while Paste describes it as “haunting” and Entertainment Weekly asserts, “a crackling, morose blues-rock ballad…that swells with moments of fury.” The single is now available to stream and purchase and the album is now available to pre-order. See reverse for complete track listing.

 The Civil Wars was recorded in Nashville between August 2012 and January 2013. Charlie Peacock was once again at the helm as producer for the album. Additionally, Rick Rubin produced the duo’s performance for the track “I Had Me a Girl” in August of 2011. Peacock later completed the track by producing the instrumentation and mix.

 The album was recorded amidst a gruelling touring schedule, exhausting workload and a growing disconnect from their families. Personal statements from band-members Joy Williams and John Paul White can be viewed at
