Jason Isbell appeared on the soundtracks for two of the biggest films of 2023, and even starred in one of them. In 2024, he keeps the ball rolling with GRAMMY nominations and tour appearances.
Later this year, Isbell is touring with Zach Bryan, along with Turnpike Troubadours, Sheryl Crow and The Middle East. He’s performing as an opening guest for Bryan, appearing at the Foxborough and Tampa shows of The Quittin Time Tour.
Isbell’s ball roll is only held back by a vocal cord issue he’s currently facing. He and his band, the 400 Unit, recently canceled their Liberty Hall gig in Lawrence, Kansas. This is the second cancellation in a row, following the canceled Springfield, Missouri, gig.
Isbell said in a social media post, “Looks like I got just enough of a virus from my daughter over the weekend to cause drainage that temporarily screwed up my vocal cords. I got checked out, got a prescription, and I’m sleeping at an angle and drinking a ton of water. Everybody is ok, I just can’t sing well enough to put on a show that meets our standards.” He clarified that he does not have COVID.
