Jason Isbell has been part of a beloved rock band (Drive By Truckers), is married to a critically acclaimed singer-songwriter (Amanda Shires), was the winner of last year's Americana Music Award for Song Of The Year ("Alabama Pines"), appeared on other great albums (Kim Richey's "Thorn In The Heart") and has recently gotten sober.
The foundation of his past is what seems to have uplifted his new record "Southeastern," which is receiving great acclaim. Look for the thoughtful singer-songwriter to turn more heads in Newport
