“The King of Americana.” – The Nashville Scene
“…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.” – New York Times Magazine
Two-time GRAMMY winner Jason Isbell has announced tour dates in Summer 2017 with his band, The 400 Unit. The mighty 400 Unit is: Derry deBorja (keyboards), Chad Gamble (drums), Jimbo Hart (bass) and Sadler Vaden (guitar).
Jason and the 400 Unit are putting the final touches on their highly anticipated follow up to 2015’s Something More Than Free. The new album was recorded at the legendary RCA Studio A in Nashville with GRAMMY Award-winner Dave Cobb returning as producer. Cobb produced Something More Than Free, which won the GRAMMY Award for ‘Best Americana Album’, and includes the song “24 Frames”, the GRAMMY winner for ‘Best American Roots Song’. The new, yet-to-be-titled collection will officially be the first Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit album since 2011’s critically acclaimed Here We Rest.
Most recently, Jason won ‘Album of the Year’ for Something More Than Free and ‘Song of the Year’ for “24 Frames” at the 2016 Americana Music Awards, held on September 21 at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.
