The very, very dear Civil Wars have officially called it quits after two years of a questionable hiatus:

Joy Williams comments, “I am saddened and disappointed by the ending of this duo, to say the very least. JP is a tremendous musician, and I will always be grateful for the music we were able to create together.

The duo, which is comprised of Joy Williams and John Paul White, are offering a farewell gift - a free online download of “You Are My Sunshine,” which has only been available on vinyl:

"I sincerely hope that ‘You Are My Sunshine’ will be accepted as a token of my gratitude for every single person that has supported our duo throughout the years. I’m so thankful and my heart is full"
