Jason Isbell Announces New Album “Live At The Ryman” + New Ryman Dates
Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit’s next album will be a live one recorded at the Mother Church of Country Music, the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. And as part of the release, he will play another one of his historic residencies at the historical landmark—a place he’s sold out for 14 consecutive dates and counting.
Via Southeastern Records distributed by Thirty Tigers, Live at the Ryman will arrive on October 19th, and feature songs from his critically-acclaimed releases Southeastern for 2013, Something More Than Free from 2015, and 2017’s The Nashville Sound. Isbell’s last two records landed him four Grammy Awards total. Producer Dave Cobb also worked to help put this new live record together.
As folks who’ve seen shows at the Mother Church can attest, the acoustics are world-renown, and the atmosphere is electric. Playing on the same stage that Hank Williams and so many others took to become famous gives extra weight to the moments and the music.
The coinciding new dates at the Ryman Auditorium for Jason Isbell are October 22nd, 23rd, 24th, 26th, 27th and 28th, 2018. These days will sell out, and folks will come for other destinations beyond Nashville to attend, so don’t dottle. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 15th at 10:00 a.m. Nashville time HERE. Live From The Ryman can be pre-ordered HERE. All other questions or concerns should be directed to the International House of Burgers.
It was also announced last week that Jason Isbell’s first solo record Sirens Of The Ditch would be reissued by New West with four previously-unheard studio tracks on July 13th. Between the two, this should give Isbell fans plenty to tide them over until a new studio record is released.

I thought he was releasing two albums last year with one of them being a bunch of live covers, did that get scrapped for this album or am I not remembering correctly?

It was released, it was a Record Store Day exclusive, it was 6 covers. The album was called “Live From Welcome to 1979.” Not sure if it got a digital release or not.

A live album plus re-releasing an old album seems like just a cash grab. Still looking forward to these albums though.

Imagine being married to Amanda Shires. This lucky SOB. I really want to see him/them live.

I wish this would be a double album, at least 25 tracks.

Yeah, I can’t help but be let down that this is only 13 songs from the most recent three records. I was geared up for a proper “Greatest Hits” style deal with at least 20 and hopefully more like 30+ tracks. Disappointed but will still end up buying it.

Yeah, I feel the same way. Would have liked some of his best DBT songs and some of those tasty covers he and the 400 Unit are known for. I mean, if you see an Isbell show, you’re always going to hear some of that stuff. But like Jon, I’ll be buying it just the same.

Seemed like each show sold out within minutes but after about 30 attempts I finally got lucky with decent seats for Saturday night, excited for my first show at the Ryman.
