Jason Isbell, formerly with his band The 400 Unit and the Drive-By Truckers before that, has a new solo release that is more intimate and emotionally revealing than his previous works. Released on Tuesday the 11th, it captures the 34-year-old's head and heart during a time of significant transitions, including his recent marriage to fiddler/singer Amanda Shires. Says Isbell, "If you’re honest enough with your audience over the years, you’ll see that the audience feels very similar to you. Even if they don’t agree with you all the time, they’ll still respect your opinions, and they don’t get to the point where they turn their back on you because you’ve revealed a part of yourself." See for yourself, this Thursday night.
