John Paul White is best known for his time as a folk duo with the The Civil Wars with Joy Williams. In 2012 the pair won a grammy for best Folk Album, and Country Performance by a Duo or Group. Prior to that White started as a solo artist releasing “The Long Goodbye” in 2008. In 2016 White circled back to where he started, as a solo musicians this time with the album “Beulah.” This year White teamed with Rodney Crowell and Rosanne Cash for the tune “It Ain’t Over Yet,” which will be featured on a future album.
The Alabama singer/songwriter put his all into The Civils Wars touring more than 300 days out of the year. On off days it wasn’t un-common for White to be writing more music. After The Civil Wars split White spent much needed time with his family. Soon after the ich came back in the result of “Beulah.”
“I was in it to win it. I’d already been fighting to get up the ladder for so long. If a venue wanted us to play, we’d do it. It was all for taking that next step up the ladder. I think one of those years, we were home for 40 days out of the entire year, and I’ve got a pretty good feeling that some of those days were spent in Nashville, and not at home. And I wanted to be that busy. But I could never do that again. I have a completely different kind of bucket list now,” says White of his time with The Civil Wars during an interview with Rolling Stone.
