Barton Hollow, the first full length album from The Civil Wars is available for a mere $5 at Amazon as an MP3 download. Since it’s release in February, Barton Hollow has peaked at #1 on the iTunes album charts, #1 on the Billboard Digital Albums chart and #2 on the Billboard Folk Albums chart. The band has performed twice on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno in the last year. In addition, the Civil Wars have been nominated for Best Emerging Artist by the Americana Music Association. Lastly, it didn’t hurt that Taylor Swift tweeted about the Civil Wars in late 2010.

Standout tracks on the album include the title track, the emotional barnburner “Poison & Wine and “My Father’s Father.” Check back soon for our review of Barton Hollow. An album we feel is one of the most consistent albums of 2011.
