Jason Isbell is one of the finest poets working in American music. Mixing various aspects of Mark Twain and Bruce Springsteen, Isbell’s skill for penning lyrics that resonate with regular folks. He mixes sharp self-analysis and tempering tales of substance abuse, rural poverty and death with sardonic wit.

The songs are able to transcend the painful realities of race, class and personal politics with an honest and hopeful faith in the goodness of people, the people he knows so well.
