Arguably the most revered roots-rock singer-songwriter of his generation.”—Rolling Stone

Singer-songwriter Jason Isbell comes from northern Alabama and is closely tied to the fabled southern musical enclave of Muscle Shoals, whose studios produced some of the most enduring popular music of the 1960s and ’70s. Isbell learned to play multiple instruments as a boy, and at age 22 he joined the southern rock band Drive-by Truckers. Six years later he embarked on a solo career. His breakthrough recording Southeastern won Album of the Year at the 2014 Americana Music Awards. His follow-up record Something More Than Free debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s rock, folk, and country music charts and earned him two Grammy Awards.
