Any Civil Wars fans out on the interney (and who wouldn’t be a fan of the “Poison & Wine” duo?!?) should had over to their official site (thecivilwars.com). The group is fresh off of two Grammy nominations for Best Folk Album and Best Country Duo/Group Performance and they’re bringing in new fans by giving away the song “Barton Hollow” off of their 2011 album of the same name. To get this track, which pretty well sums up the duo’s sound, fans just need to sign up to receive the group’s e-mail newsletter. It’s actually like The Civil Wars are gifting fans twice. It’s great updates and great music all in one.

The Civil Wars Announce Holiday Single

The Civil Wars, the country duo best know for their GORGEOUS “Poison & Wine” duet on Grey’s Anatomy, is getting into the holiday spirit with a brand new single, “Tracks in the Snow.” Now, normally, we at Keepin’ It Country would be totally stoked just to get new music from one of our fave new acts (and recent ASCAP Award winners – Congrats guys!) BUT this brand spankin’ new track is being released on vinyl.

And not just any vinyl.


Oh, are we the only one’s who get that nerded out over new records? Well, if you ARE like us, check out the cover art below and be sure to order the record when it hits stores on November 25.

Brad Paisley, Ben Hayslip Win Big at Country ASCAP Awards

The 2011 ASCAP Country Music Awards have come and gone with Brad Paisley and Ben Hayslip taking home the big awards.

Paisley, who won the Songwriter/Artist Of The Year Award and Country Publisher Of The Year (for his company Sea Gayle Music) is a huge artist and household name. His honors were thanks to major hits “Anything Like Me,” “This is Country Music,” and “Water.”

But while most wouldn’t recognize Hayslip’s name, they’re sure to recognize his writing on some of the biggest tracks of the year. “All About Tonight” (Blake Shelton), “All Over Me” (Josh Turner), “Farmer’s Daughter” (Rodney Adkins), “Gimme That Girl” (Josh Nichols), and “The Shape I’m In” (Joe Nichols) can all be credited, at least in part, to Hayslip’s expert songwriting chops.

Check out a full list of all of the top honors after the jump!
