Trail Mix: See Jason Isbell Live in Asheville

get more from BRO

2013 will certainly be seen as a seminal year in the career of Southern rock troubadour Jason Isbell.

In February, Isbell married singer/songwriter Amanda Shires, and in June he released Southeastern, an ode to his newfound sobriety and his deepest, most poignant record to date. Along the way, Isbell managed appearances on CBS This Morning, Conan, and Letterman, taped an Austin City Limits spot, toured incessantly across the US and Europe, and saw Southeastern lauded across the land – the record ended up on best of the year lists from American Songwriter (who labeled it the best of the year), NPR, and Amazon, among many others.

Since 2007, when Isbell left Drive-By Truckers, his rise to the upper echelon of Southern rock and roll has been meteoric. Three critically acclaimed records – 2007’s Sirens Of The Ditch, 2009’s Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit, and 2011’s Here We Rest have served notice that this Alabama singer/songwriter will long be a powerful force in the world of contemporary Americana.

Jason Isbell will be visiting The Orange Peel in Asheville tomorrow night, January 23rd. Trail Mix would love to give you the opportunity to check out the show.
