Spin magazine calls southern singer-songwriter Jason Isbell “one of the finest lyricists working today.”. An Alabama native, Isbell began his career as a member of the popular alt-country band Drive-By Truckers. In 2007, Isbell embarked on a solo career, garnering popular and critical acclaim for his stark and poignant story songs. The raw, open power of Isbell’s 2013 album Southeastern landed the record on top-ten lists across the country. The New York Times calls Isbell “one of America’s thoroughbred songwriters, with a knack for rueful melodies and the kind of grainy blue-collar detail that pins a song in your mind.”.
