Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit @ Ryman Auditorium / Nashville TN / October 9, 10, 11, 13, 14 & 15, 2017

It was “Jason Week” at the Ryman, and I would not have missed every moment of it for the world. In fact, the common thread amongst the contingent of faithful fans like me who showed up every night for all six shows was just that it just wouldn’t feel right any other way. After successfully […]

Jason Isbell @ Franklin Theatre / Franklin TN / January 9, 2017

Attending my first concert of 2017 was a challenge. The first and only e-mail warning about this special benefit show at the Franklin Theatre arrived in my inbox at 10am on a Friday with the short notice that tickets were going on sale at noon. Surely, this scant two hours warning would keep things under […]

Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival @ Harlinsdale Farm / Franklin TN / September 25, 2016 (Day Two)

Was it Sunday church, the Titans’ football game, or maybe just the ridiculous heat that lessened the early crowd at the second day of the second annual Pilgrimage Festival? With not a single cloud in the sky, my guess is that it was Mr. Sunshine and the 90-degree heat that made many choose a late […]

Jason Isbell @ City Winery / Nashville TN / December 28 & 29, 2015

The following was overheard above the cries of a teething infant at the Hermitage, TN household of Mr. and Mrs. J. Isbell: “Honey, what do you want to do over the Christmas holidays? Why don’t we drive down to Nashville and play a couple of shows together for our friends down there?” Well, thanks again […]

Mike’s Music Lists: Jason Isbell at the Ryman Auditorium

The wheels were set in motion back on June 11, 2013. The crowd for Jason Isbell’s Grimeys in-store appearance were told that our newest local Americana hero would be making his headlining Ryman debut on August 17. Little did we know back then that this would mark what looks to be an ever-expanding annual event. […]

Jason Isbell @ City Winery / Nashville TN / December 29, 2014

Sorry, but no apologies for all the attention given to Jason Isbell in this space. Even though he is still riding the wave of a record almost two years old (Southeastern), I simply have not tired of its songs—especially hearing Jason perform them live. This time out, Jason filed a break in a steady touring […]

Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit @ Ryman Auditorium / Nashville TN / October 24-26, 2014

Jason Isbell has been on one hell of a ride since June 2013, when he released his fourth solo LP, Southeastern. In between touring the world to promote the record with his crack 400 Unit, Isbell has taken in beaucoup accolades for having produced perhaps the best singer-songwriter album of this young century. The praise […]
