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"
