I'm gonna keep it real with you right now - there is a very good chance you've never heard of Jason Isbell, but I promise if you give him a listen, you're gonna like what you hear. The way he tells a story - his lyrics and his voice - are sure to get your attention.

Jason started out as a member of the roots-rock band the Drive-By Truckers. Since deciding to go solo, Jason has received great reviews for the music he's made with his new band The 400 Unit. Jason has also picked up a handful of Grammy Awards along the way - he's been nominated four times, and he's won four times. In 2015 and 2017 he took home the Grammy for Best American Roots Song and Best Americana Album.
