FREE Denver Music Download: TV Show Nashville’s Great Duet Song ‘If I Didn’t Know Better’
Are you a fan of Wednesday night’s new hit TV show Nashville, which revolves around the battle for dominance between a country-music veteran (Friday Night Lights’ Connie Britton) and a young upstart (Hayden Panettiere). But there is also a great duet between actress Clare Bowen’s Scarlett O’Connor—a star-struck waitress at Nashville’s legendary Bluebird Café and the niece of Rayna’s bandleader, Deacon Claybourne (Charles Esten) and actor Sam Palladio’s Gunnar Scott character. The breathtaking song—performed by Clare Bowen and Sam Palladio—that came at the episode’s end is actually a cover of a song by The Civil Wars. The song in question: “If I Didn’t Know Better,” which appears on The Civil Wars’ 2009 live album, Live at Eddie’s Attic. The Civil Wars—singer-songwriters Joy Williams and John Paul White—won the Grammy Award for Best Folk Album and Best Country Duo/Group Performance earlier this year.
The disc that contains “If I Didn’t Know Better” is available as a free download HERE from the band’s site HERE, and had been downloaded more than 100,000 times as of early 2011. Their song, “Poison & Wine” was featured on Grey’s Anatomy and was included by Taylor Swift in her official iTunes playlist.
