ATO Records and music supervisor Randall Poster ( Moonrise Kingdom, Boardwalk Empire, Rave On Buddy Holly ) have joined forces to release Divided and United, a two-disc set of Civil War songs brought to life through fresh interpretations by the pioneers, Hall of Famers and rising young stars of country, bluegrass, folk and beyond. Each song offers a unique window on the past, with themes exploring race, identity and reconciliation in a manner that echoes profoundly today. The tremendous talents on Divided & United span several generations and genres: Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton (on a duet with Stuart Duncan), Vince Gill, Lee Ann Womack, Ralph Stanley, AA Bondy, Jamey Johnson, Chris Thile, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Taj Mahal, Shovels & Rope, Cowboy Jack Clement, John Doe, Karen Elson and many more. Combined they have won close to 200 Grammy Awards, numerous Country Music Awards and include Rock And Roll Hall of Famers, Country Music Hall of Famers and Bluegrass Hall of Famers. Divided and United also features an essay by noted musician, filmmaker and historian John Cohen. Best known for his work with directors Wes Anderson, Martin Scorsese and Todd Haynes, Poster was inspired to make Divided and United while working on the film Country Strong in Nashville.
