The Civil Wars, Parlor Hawk

If you look at the musical relationship between The Civil Wars’ Joy Williams and John Paul White as a movie—appropriate given their arrival during the Sundance Film Festival—they have the perfect “meet-cute” scene to open the flick. Flash back 18 months to a Nashville conference room crowded with about 20 songwriters gathered to come up with radio hits for a mainstream country act. While the afternoon’s assignment was ultimately a failure, the gal from Northern California with a background in gospel and the Beach Boys and the lanky Alabama fellow whose daddy raised him to love Johnny Cash and Townes Van Zandt found themselves matched up via drawn straws, and immediately hit it off. Actually, “hit it off” is putting it mildly. The songwriting spark burst into a prolonged creative session, minus the 18 other writers from their first “date,” and The Civil Wars was born. $12 advance/$15 day of show. Parlor Hawk opens
