The future of the country duo The Civil Wars is in doubt, but not the group's popularity.

John Paul White and Joy Williams won their third Grammy in three years, taking best country duo/group performance for "From This Valley."

The song appeared on the duo's self-titled second album, which was released after White and Williams decided to take a break from working together.

The win was something of a surprise, coming against Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton; Kelly Clarkson and Vince Gill; Tim McGraw, Taylor Swift and Keith Urban; and Little Big Town.

"I'd like to apologize to Dolly Parton for depriving her of anything at all," White joked. "She's one of my biggest heroes."

White made no mention of Williams, who did not accompany him to the stage but has been in attendance during Grammy Week.
