I have recently started listening to a new band. They are awesome. I also recently found out that 1/2 of the new group I was listening to is from my hometown. We share a lot of the same friends and that made me like them even more. I like to be able to relate. I think we all do. I don't personally know him but I do know that six degrees of separation makes for an interesting take on things, for me anyway.
Before I knew all of this, which really amounts to nothing for anyone except me. I mean before I knew this - just listening to them gave me chill bumps.
Here is a link to a video from the title track to THE CIVIL WARS new album called: Barton Hollow that will be released on Feb 1, 2011.
And another side note... This video was shot less than 5 miles from my mom and dad's house... So super cool. Please check them out. They are amazing singer songwriters... AMAZING!!!
