When The Civil Wars' song "Poison and Wine" debuted at the end of an episode of ABC's Grey's Anatomy, it set off a flurry of activity. Viewers scrambled to the Internet to find out more about John Paul White and Joy Williams' band.
More than half a million people have watched the YouTube video for the song — which almost didn't make it to the Web in time.
White says the duo found out the show was going to use the song only four days ahead of time.
With his acoustic-pop sensibilities and mix of rock, bluegrass, and folk influences, Justin Townes Earle has earned the respect of critics and musicians all over — an accomplishment all the more greater considering what he's been through to gain respect.
