Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit

Danny Clinch

Put on your best pair of cowboy boots and get ready for a double dose of Americana. Jason Isbell and James McMurtry head to Dallas for the second show of their 2018 tour in support of Isbell’s latest album, The Nashville Sound. The record has been the former Drive-By Truckers guitarist’s most critically acclaimed to date, earning Isbell his first CMA Award nomination and a chance for a Grammy for best Americana album later this month. Isbell also was designated the 14th artist-in-residence of Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum last October. McMurtry, the son of Texas icon and Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Larry McMurtry, hasn’t released an album since 2015’s Complicated Game, which reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Heatseekers chart. Both artists are known for their deep and thoughtful lyricism, Isbell’s painted by characteristic softness that matches the melancholic self-reflections he explores. McMurtry evokes an almost Jim Carroll-esque sense of humor with his music.
