Jason Isbell On Mountain Stage

Amanda Shires and Jason Isbell perform on Mountain Stage.

Jason Isbell recently told Mountain Stage host Larry Groce that "there are much worse things you can be called than a former Drive-By Trucker," but that "I've been out of that band as long as I was in it."

Already a proven songwriter capable of unflinching honesty, Isbell goes even deeper on his new album, Southeastern, on which he proclaims, "I sobered up / I swore off that stuff / Forever this time." With a set drawing entirely from Southeastern, Isbell is backed here by members of his longtime band The 400 Unit, along with a special guest: his wife, singer and fiddler Amanda Shires.

Set List

  • "Live Oak"
  • "Different Days"
  • "Traveling Alone"
  • "Cover Me Up"
  • "Stockholm"
  • "Flying Over Water"
