Award-winning roots stalwart Jason Isbell and his band the 400 Unit have announced plans for a coast-to-coast tour in spring, with 19 new dates scheduled from Florida to California.
Kicking off April 14th with a show at the Savannah Music Festival in Savannah, Georgia, the tour will wrap May 10th with a stop in Isbell’s home state at Von Braun Center in Huntsville, Alabama. Along the way Isbell will perform in cities such as Orlando, Florida; Charleston, South Carolina; San Antonio, Texas; and Knoxville, Tennessee, where the band is booked for a two-night stand at the Tennessee Theatre. English-folk singer-guitarist Richard Thompson is slated to open most dates, though the details of Thompson’s appearances have not yet been specified.
Isbell and band are currently on tour with singer-songwriter James McMurtry through February, in continued support of the critically acclaimed album The Nashville Sound.
Already a two-time Grammy winner for Best Americana Album (Something More Than Free) and Best American Roots Song (“24 Frames”), Isbell is nominated for another two honors at this year’s January 28th ceremony: Best Americana Album (The Nashville Sound) and Best American Roots Song (“If We Were Vampires”). Rolling Stone recently named The Nashville Sound to its 40 Best Country and Americana Albums of 2017 list, while “If We Were Vampires” was lauded as the best country song of the year.
