“There’s something about the last few years that I’ve been through that have totally broken me in a lot of ways,” Williams says. “But you can choose to break down or you can choose to break open.”
Despite having split more than a year ago, John Paul White and Joy Williams took home their fourth GRAMMY award last night. White showed up to receive it alone, then today expanded on his message of thanks via Twitter.
To feel the tension that permeates ‘The Civil Wars,’ it’s not just about the lyrics, it’s about every single detail that went into the album.
“I’m just really proud of what we created together,” said Joy Williams. “And we created it together — we just happened to be in a bit of a civil war ourselves.”
This Saturday marked the birth of Miles Alexander, the first child for Joy Williams of the Civil Wars and her husband Nate Yetton.
