About Jason Isbell
Born in Green Hill, Alabama, Grammy Award winner Jason Isbell has been on the music scene since 2000. While he is best known for his solo career with The 400 Unit, he was a member of the Drive-By Truckers band for six years between 2001 and 2007.
As a child, Isbell’s grandparents taught him to play a variety of instruments. He started out playing in a garage band and a country cover band at the tender age of 14. By the time he was 16, he was playing at the Grand Ole Opry.
He would join the Drive-By Truckers in 2001, at the age of 22, after working as a songwriter.

In 2013, he released his fourth studio solo album entitled Southeastern, which featured accompanying vocals by his wife Amanda Shires. The album received positive reviews from critics. His fourth album earned him several Americana Music Awards in 2014, including Artist of the Year, Album of the Year and Song of the Year for “Cover Me Up.”
