– The Civil Wars will open dates for British singer Adele in mid-May for one week of her tour of the U.S.

The duo released their second disc (their first album "Live at Eddie's Attic" was available as a free download), "Barton Hollow," which debuted at 12 on the Billboard 200. The duo will return for a second performance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on May 6.
