Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter and guitarist Jason Isbell and his mighty band, The 400 Unit, are on a U.S. tour following the release of their highly anticipated new album “The Nashville Sound” on June 16. The album is the followup to 2015’s critically-acclaimed “Something More Than Free,” which won two Grammy Awards and two Americana Music Association Awards.

Isbell has become one of the most respected songwriters of this era, and when he steps onto the stage with the mighty 400 Unit, they become one of the strongest live acts on the road today, captivating audiences worldwide. The 400 Unit features Derry deBorja (keyboards), Chad Gamble (drums), Jimbo Hart (bass), Amanda Shires (fiddle) and Sadler Vaden (guitar).
