John Paul White is an American singer-songwriter, and was a member of the Grammy Award-winning duo The Civil Wars. He restarted his solo career with his 2016 release, "Beulah".
White was born in Muscle Shoals, Alabama and grew up in Loretto, Tennessee, on a chicken farm. He attended Sacred Heart School as well as Sacred Heart Church of Jesus in Loretto, Tennessee, as a child and graduated from Loretto High School. He is the oldest of four children.
White, along with friends from high school, released his first album independently as the band Nuthin' Fancy. The album was recorded with Jeff Quillen at Rock N Roll Dawg Sound/Studio in his hometown of Loretto, Tennessee.
White released the album The Long Goodbye in 2008. The following year White joined Joy Williams to form The Civil Wars. The duo won the 2012 Grammy Awards for best Folk Album, and Country Performance by a Duo or Group.
In 2015 he contributed the song "Kyrie", a duet with Emmylou Harris, to the album "Mercyland: Hymns for the Rest of Us, Vol. II." Then in 2016, White released a solo "Simple Song" for the album "Southern Family" by Dave Cobb.
White is a co-owner of Single Lock Records, which he founded in his hometown of Florence, Alabama, together with Ben Tanner (of the Alabama Shakes) and Florence financial consultant, Will Trapp. The label has signed multiple artists from the Muscle Shoals area, including the legendary "Funky" Donnie Fritts, along with indie standouts like Lera Lynn. White often collaborates with the artists on the Single Lock label.
His album, "Beulah", was released on August 19, 2016.
In 2017, White guested on the song "It Ain't Over Yet" with Rodney Crowell and Rosanne Cash. The track will appear on Crowell's album Close Ties.
In 2018, White embarked on a little publicized house concert tour to get feedback on new material. His loyal fans obliged, and this culminated with the April 2019 release of his album, "The Hurting Kind." The album was a bit of a departure from White's Southern Rock / Americana roots, and was an intentional tribute to the country music he grew up listening to. White co-wrote "I Wish I Could Write You a Song" with "Whispering" Bill Anderson, resulting in a distinctly Orbison feel on the track. White continues to tour in 2019 with several Single Lock artists, including acclaimed newcomer Erin Rae.
White lives in Florence, Alabama with his wife Jenny and their three children, John Paul Jr., Jack, and Julianna.
