Jason Isbell has always existed just outside the confines of mainstream country, so it will be interesting to see what he does with an album called The Nashville Sound. That’s the name of the former Drive-By Trucker’s next LP, which he announced via The Tennessean this morning alongside a run of shows at Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium this October. The Nashville Sound is Isbell’s third album with producer Dave Cobb, including 2015’s Grammy-winning (and Album Of The Week-winning) Something More Than Free. He’s also releasing a live album called Live From Welcome To 1979 on Record Store Day featuring covers of Bruce Springsteen, John Prine, Candi Staton, and the Rolling Stones.
The Nashville Sound is out 6/16.
