Anyone watching the CMAs tonight...lets pull for one of our own...Jason Isbell

Isbell has been around a while, most famously associated with Drive By Truckers. The guy is a phenomenal singer/songwriter. If you don’t know his music and like traditional or alt-Country or Americana...I can’t recommend him enough. He’s an outspoken liberal, and his album “Nashville Sound” is up for album of the year...despite being an “independent” album and not being pushed by a major label. Saw him recently at the Ryman in Nashville and it was unbelievable. Also, his wife Amanda Shires , who also sings backup and plays fiddle for him, is an incredible artist in her own right!

The night I saw him at the Ryman, they had invited the local ACLU to have a table in the lobby...freaking awesome!

Here’s taste from “Nashville Sound”

1. Liberal Redneck Trae Crowder opened a few Isbell shows this year

Wears his tour hat in some of his videos.
Here he is with Bill Maher.

2. Thats fucking awesome...I love Trae!

I love when he says “I’m like the Jane Goodall of rednecks”...I’m cheering, because that speaks to me! That’s me!! I stay out of most conversations about rural folks here because I know I understand it, and I can’t express it in a way for others to appreciate that viewpoint.

3. "Southeastern" is one of the best albums of the decade.

But my favorite of his songs are still 2 from his DBT run.

Yeah, he's pretty great.
