Music today has been The Civil WarsBarton Hollow (2011). If you type into Google ‘What happened to the Civil Wars?’, this is what comes up:

But last year, in the middle of a tour, the band abruptly cancelled the rest of its dates, citing “internal discord and irreconcilable differences of ambition.” The two musicians haven’t appeared together since. (2 Aug 2013)

Like Plant and Krauss, they were a female/male duo (Joy Williams and John Paul White) with a country influence. Their harmonies and chemistry and songs were something special, like First Aid Kit when they sing together, magic happens. Check out the Poison and Wine video and listen to Barton Hollow, their self-titled second album (2013). Very sad they couldn’t get along, they had a lot more to give, and it’s just not the same when they are not together.
