Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit are taking to the stage this Thursday, January 19 in The Walt Disney Theater at Dr Phillips Center.


Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit features musicians from the legendary Muscle Shoals region, the band was assembled by Isbell after he left Drive-By Truckers.


The band takes its name from the 400 Unit, which is what locals once called the psychiatric ward of Eliza Coffee Memorial Hospital in Florence, Alabama


The 400 Unit includes fiddle player Amanda Shires, who founded country supergroup The Highwomen in 2019 and is Isbell’s wife.


Jason Isbell has established himself as one of the most respected and celebrated songwriters of his generation.


The North Alabama native possesses an incredible penchant for identifying and articulating some of the deepest, yet simplest, human emotions, and turning them into beautiful poetry through song.


Isbell sings of the everyday human condition with thoughtful, heartfelt, and sometimes brutal honesty.


Isbell broke through in 2013 with the release of Southeastern. His next two albums, Something More Than Free(2015) and The Nashville Sound (2017), won Grammy Awards for “Best Americana Album” & “Best American Roots Song”. Isbell's song "Maybe It's Time" was featured in the 2019 reboot of A Star Is Born.


His most recent full-length album, Reunions (2020), is a critically-acclaimed collection of ten new songs that showcases an artist at the height of his powers and a band fully charged with creativity and confidence.


In April of 2021, it was announced that Isbell would appear in the upcoming Martin Scorsese film, Killers of the Flower Moon.



Peter One, half of folk duo Jess Sah Bi & Peter One, will be providing support, so get there early!
