I’ve waited way to long to discuss Jason Isbell’s, Southeastern, album that was released last year. It has been on heavy rotation in my car over the past several months.
Jason grew up very close to where I live in North Alabama so I feel compelled to support him based on just that but let me tell you……he deserves my support, and yours, based on raw talent. He is, without a doubt, one the favorite new singer/songwriters that I have discovered in years.
Jason may be best known as a member of Drive By Truckers but for the last 6-7 years he has focused on his solo career. His hard work paid off with the release of Southeastern which was, and continues to be, a huge hit. Tonight I have two of my favorite songs from that album for you. First up is Traveling Alone followed by a live performance of Different Days.
Different Days – Live
As always, let me know what you think!
Wow, this guy is really good. Will check out his cd…
Reminds me of Robert Earl Keen and I mean this as a compliment…
Thanks for the feedback to the Jason Isbell post. I’m glad you liked his music. I think he’s a real talent.
Before your comment, I wasn’t familiar with Robert Earl Keen except for his great Christmas song “Merry Christmas From The Family”. I’ve checked out more of his music based on your comment and I have to say that I really enjoyed it. I will try to do a post about him in the figure. Thanks for reading my blog.
Thanks for this.
Bought Southeastern after reading your post and have been listening to it a lot…
A great album and Isbell is a very fine songwriter, indeed.
Many thanks for the tip…
