I saw Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit in concert in February of this year. They were amazing. Anyone else a fan of his music?

Southeastern is an amazing record. I think he's one of the best songwriters on the planet. And he's got a damn good band too. I have to give credit to some kind soul on this site for posting a video a couple years ago. Jason Isbell is worth checking out.

I've been a massive fan for years. I've bought countless copies of his CDs and gave them to friends....they're all now converts. He DESTROYED the Bluebird in Bloomington Saturday night. He's the real deal: fantastic songwriter, incredible guitarist and his singing his ridiculous. and, yes, the band is first class as well.

He is a huge talent!!!. I've loved his music since his Drive By Trucker days. His lyrics illustrate a story. His grandmother was at the concert I attended. He ask her to stand up. He dedicated " Traveling Alone" to her. He said it was her favorite song off Southeastern. I hope he sees many years of success.

He's one of my favorite songwriters I've ever heard. Just incredibly talented.

Having have lived in Alabama for the last 40 years, I've had the pleasure of seeing Jason grow and develop. Personally, I like his solo efforts better than the 'Truckers. Jason's former guitarist (400 Unit), Browan Lollar is now part of St. Paul and the Broken Bones - another incredibly fine act from the musically rich state of Alabama! It's all real, real good!

I suspect Jason is going to be my post Allman Brothers obsession that keeps me musically sane well into my old age

Another big fan here. He played a pretty cool benefit show with Cooley and Patterson on Sunday night for anyone who might be interested.

I took note of him when he played Cortez the Killer with the Mule at the Beacon. I never could get into the truckers for some reason but liked him. Southeastern seemed a little too dark and slow when i first heard it but it's really growing on me. Talented writer and musician for sure. Seems to be very focused now that he's sober .

He jams with Deer Tick a lot. They're my favorite young band at the moment. I think John McCauley's writing and Jason's have some things in common.

I grew up in Alabama. They have always had some amazing talent there. My father was a lead singer and rhythm guitar player in a local band.

I digress. Look at who else had some appreciation for Alabama music. Look at the t shirt!

I'm glad you're learning to love Southeastern. I was amazed by it the first time I heard it. Maybe it's a southern thing. I grew up in the same area as Jason. When I heard his lyrics that mention real places and attitudes, I know exactly what he is talking about. His real talent shows through the lyrics because people who have no clue about these places still love the songs. I guess attitudes are universal.
