Do you have that one band or musician that is your go-to? That you can listen to over and over and over and never, ever, get tired of? That actually makes you feel emotions when you listen to them? For me, that is The Civil Wars. I’ve mentioned them briefly in posts before, but I’m not sure you understand my complete and unashamed love for them. I listen to them when I’m happy, sad, mad, stressed….and a calming sense of relief comes over me. I’m not exaggerating. Their voices are raw and beautiful and full of emotion and that somehow balances mine out and just makes everything better.
But the really sad part? They are no longer together….I will never get to see them perform….and it is truly heartbreaking. All I can do is continue to enjoy the two full-length albums over and over again. And pray for a miracle.
