    Any Jason Isbell fans here? Don't hear much about him (or anyone else since this...

    ...place is nearly dead), but he's become one of my favorite Alt Country artists. If you weren't aware, he was with The Drive By Truckers for about 6 years, leaving them @ 2007, and has been solo since, using Muscle Shoals musicians for his band called The 400 Unit (named after a psych ward at hospital in Alabama).

    Anyway, we have tickets to see him in February, and it should be a great show. Here's a fan favorite called Cover Me Up, from a live performance at ACL.

    I call my bathroom Jim instead of John so I can tell people that I go to the Jim first thing every morning.

    If you say the word 'gullible' very slowly it sounds just like oranges.

    Swish-baby, I have a couple of CDs by the guy, and they are a little laid-back for me. Wasn't a big fan of DBT, either, even though they have all the elements of a band I SHOULD like. Too Stones-like, I think.

    Just read an article on JI, will try to dig it up and post a link.
