From the Columbia Records Press Release, Joy Williams gives a track by track description of their new album.
The Civil Wars track-by-track by Joy Williams
The One That Got Away
This song pays homage to regret. Nearly everybody I’ve come across has somebody in their life that they wonder what life would be like if they’d never met that person. It’s that sliding-doors moment—in the blink of an eye everything could change. Either for the positive or the negative.
John Paul and I wrote this song in the screened-in porch of my and Nate’s new home. I remember warm breezes blowing, a mild day. I had recently had my son, Miles, who happened to be asleep with Nate in the living room, right next to the porch. I remember asking John Paul to play quietly so he didn’t wake up the baby.
The Civil Wars new album debuted at #1. Joy and John say thanks.
#1. Wow. Thanks to each and every one of you for sending The Civil Wars straight to #1 on the Billboard charts. Your support and continued word of mouth is what did that, and I am so grateful. Here’s to you as we celebrate.
– Joy Williams
Thanks for your continued support. It does not go unnoticed.
