Name: Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit
Date: December 16, 2017
Time: 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM CST
Event Description:
Alabama native Jason Isbell is both a product of his Northern Alabama roots and an example of how musical influences can help an artist evolve and mature. Born in Greenhill, Alabama, Isbell is undeniably inspired by the soul-tinged rock, country, and blues produced in neighboring Muscle Shoals. His sound continues to evolve but is equal parts loud and thoughtful, Southern and worldly. As a lyricist, Jason is willing to tell the difficult stories, whether raw, introspective, messy, or poetic. As an artist, he reveals his own vulnerabilities – his successes and failures – that listeners might find kinship, or perspective. The Wall Street Journal writes, "A composer of splendidly crafted songs, he performs with anintensity that connects the listener to the deep and genuine emotions that inspire his work."

His past albums include Sirens of the Ditch, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, Here We Rest, Live from Alabama and Southeastern. His most recent release is The Nashville Sound. The Nashville Sound is the follow up to 2015’s critically acclaimed Something More Than Free, which won two Grammy Awards (Best Americana Album & Best American Roots Song, “24 Frames”) and two Americana Music Association Awards (Album of the Year & Song of The Year, “24 Frames”). 

If Southeastern (2013) was the Getting Sober record (Jason has been searingly honest in both songs and interviews about the time he spent in rehab), and Something More Than Free (2015) was the New Clarity record, maybe this one, The Nashville Sound, is the Way Forward.
