Jason Isbell’s “Southeastern”

Former Drive By Truckers guitarist and Muscle Shoals native Jason Isbell is one of the most exceptional songwriters and performers out there right now. If you like Ryan Adams, then you’ll like him. In fact, they’ve toured together before, which makes sense considering their similar Folk / Rock / Americana sounds. His latest album Southeastern might just be a masterpiece – something he credits in part to his newfound sobriety. As Isbell put it in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, “[the creative process] felt more natural to me…My focus stays strong – I can work on a song for six or seven hours in one day, and not get bored or tired of it.” I would highly recommend getting the album, and be sure to get tickets to one of the shows listed below before they all sell out!

Here he is with one of my favorites off Southeastern – “Cover Up”

And one of my favorites of all time off of the 2009 album Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit – “Cigarettes and Wine”
