The Civil Wars’ Joy Williams and John Paul White have been on an indefinite hiatus since 2012. However, today, the Nashville folk duo formally announced that they’d be parting ways permanently.

Formed in 2009, the two-piece went on to earn widespread praise and even a Grammy nomination for their debut album, 2011’s Barton HallowDespite their growing success, they went on hiatus in late 2012, citing “internal discord and irreconcilable differences of ambition” as reasons for why they were “unable to continue as a touring entity.”

Even with “irreconcilable differences,” the duo continued to release new music, including their self-titled sophomore album last summer and a covers EP last November for Record Store Day.
