Weekend Music Break: The Civil Wars Do Michael Jackson

They may be a broke-up band, but they’re still winning Grammys. Here’s a song from happier times.

The Civil Wars turn “Billie Jean” on its head, to marvelous effect, in a live concert from 2011. (Thanks to Nobel-winning economist Paul Krugman, of all people, for the tip.)

The Civil Wars won a Grammy this week for Best Country Duo/Group Performance, even though they’ve been broken up since late 2012. The duo have been silent or maddeningly vague on the reasons for the breakup. But they are “not on speaking terms” and still show no signs of reuniting.
