Default Jason Isbell cover of Whipping Post

He was great in the drive by truckers but man! Has he become my favorite musician since he got sober and started the 400 unit.

Thought you guys might enjoy this cover. They rock the hell out of it!

I'll let you know if he plays that when I see him in about 6 hours.

I've been following under the radar artists for 25 years (like Robert Earl Keen, Hayes Carll, Steve Earle, Fred Eaglesmith, Todd Snider (rules) James McMurtry, Paul Thorn), sometimes driving 200 miles on a school night for a show. None have affected me as deeply as Jason. Music should make you feel something, and some of his can figuratively drop me to my knees.

If you know of a soldier killed in action (and don't we all), go to the 17:05 mark on this full show tube to hear a most excellent version of Dress Blues, a true story song about a kid from Isbell's high school.

That was great! Thanks for sharing! Jason and his wife are both phenomenal musicians, her band is just as good, sometimes better....

Thanks sunedog. Isbell is one of my all time favorites. And your right, if his music don't make you feel something you have no soul.

snap a few pics if you can. No cameras were allowed at red bank. McMurtry opened up there. Had a local blues harmonica player join for super 8.

I thought I was the only one who liked this on this site. Buddy introduced me to Isbell a year or two ago, and now we've been to see him anytime he comes close. Dress Blues is the only song I've ever described as "Beautiful". If that doesn't bring a tear to your eye, you have no soul.

Saw him in Durham at DPAC a couple of months ago. Amanda was with him, and Mercy, his 2 year old daughter even made an appearance. Phenomenal artist. To me, he's like Guy Clark in that he just doesn't write a bad song.

Elephant - Live.
Love his intro, and of course the song speaks for itself.

I’m happy to see others here that appreciate really special music.

Here is another performance that was spectacular. And you’re right. He doesn’t write a bad song. He even said in a recent interview that he won’t even go into studio until he has 12 songs he is happy with because he doesn’t want people having to skip over songs

Went saw him in Baton Rouge in January, wife came, she listens to him, when I do, more of just background music for her while we're in the kitchen. Sitting down, in a somewhat intimate setting, and he sang Elephant, look over at her, and she had a tear on her face. After the show, asked her what she thought, "I've never heard songs written like that".

Cover Me Up live, in a small setting, is probably one of the best songs I've ever heard. He is one of the best songwriters of our generation, and is finally starting to get a little mainstream following.

I listen to him damn near every day.

I ran across this and found it particularly interesting. A couple of guys who have never heard of Isbell listen to Elephant for the first time and video their reaction as they dissect the lyrics and gradually comprehend the story.

wow that was great! Thanks for posting that. Will definitely share with other friends that are fans. Nice to see they gave him a real fair listen. Hard to deny music that is written purely from the heart.

I found this this last week and thought it was a cool collaboration

This entire concert is legitimately excellent.

Cover Me Up, starting around 1:06, is really, really amazing.
