Jason Isbell and his band The 400 Unit have just notched their best-charting, and best-selling record of Jason Isbell’s career with The Nashville Sound. Selling a total of 54,000 units, including 51,000 in pure album sales, it puts Isbell #1 in country, and #4 overall for this week on the album charts.
The Nashville Sound
It’s not just talent that sifts certain artists to the top of the heap of their discipline, it is timing. And Jason Isbell is one of the defining artists of our era because he is Southern, and enlightened, and can understand the perspective of the poor Southern man, as well as the faraway intellectual.
Jason Isbell has officially announced his sixth solo studio album called ‘The Nashville Sound.’ Produced by long-time collaborator Dave Cobb, recorded at the historic Studio ‘A’ in Nashville, and to be released by Thirty Tigers via Isbell’s own Southeastern Records, the album is highly-anticipated by many country and Americana fans.
