`The Civil Wars` split up

Los Angeles: `The Civil Wars`, musical duo composed of singer-songwriters Joy Williams and John Paul White, have split up permanently.

The four-time Grammy Award-winning duo had been on hiatus since 2012, reportedly. The band posted a statement on their Facebook page saying that it was a "difficult decision".

"The Civil Wars - made up of duo partners Joy Williams and John Paul White - have regretfully decided to permanently part ways. The difficult decision ends a tumultuous period for the four-time Grammy Award-winning band, who has been on indefinite hiatus since late 2012.

"As a thank you gift and farewell, the band is offering a download of their rendition of `You Are My Sunshine`. Recorded in 2010, the track was originally released in 2011 as a b-side to the band`s limited edition Barton Hollow 7" vinyl. This is the first time the song has been available digitally in the US," the statement said.
