Many fell in love with Iron and Wine when Beam's tender and spare rendering of The Postal Service's "Such Great Heights" was featured on the Garden State soundtrack in 2002. That same year, the South Carolina-born, Texas-based Beam announced himself as a classic American tunesmith with a precocious musical signature on Iron and Wine's epically sparse debut album The Creek Drank the Cradle, followed by 2003's The Sea & The Rhythm EP, 2004's full-length Our Endless Numbered Days, 2005's Woman King EP, as well as In the Reins, a collaboration with rock band Calexico.

In 2007, Iron and Wine released the lyrically evocative, casually atmospheric The Shepherd's Dog, which debuted at No. 24 on Billboard's Top 200 Album chart and earned praise from critics, who hailed as a major musical leap forward.

The New York Times called it "the brilliant culmination of [Beam's] experiments," while Entertainment Weekly noted that Beam "has added dimension to his style without sacrificing its gorgeous tranquility." Filter called The Shepherd's Dog Iron and Wine's "grandest album to date," while Q compared it to quicksand, calling it "subtle, surprising, and utterly absorbing."

In 2008, Iron and Wine's song "Flightless Bird, American Mouth" was featured on the best-selling soundtrack to the movie Twilight.
