Four-time Grammy winner, Isbell, is at the top of his game. He is widely acclaimed as one of the best songwriters and has acquired a devoted audience who has pushed his last two albums to the tops of the charts. This new album is a seamless collection of ten new songs that delve into relationships with lovers, friends, children, parents, and one’s self. There are moving songs about youth and childhood, a deep dive into the challenges of relationships, and deeply personal songs about alcoholism and parenthood. All of them depict an artist at the height of his powers and a band fully charged with creativity and confidence.

With the number of COVID-19 cases rising due to the Delta Variant, all attendees of this event must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
