Jason Isbell Sweeps the 2014 Americana Music Awards

Jason Isbell was the big winner at the 2014 Americana Music Awards last week.

The artist picked up trophies for Artist of the Year, Song of the Year (“Cover Me Up”) and Album of the Year for his highly acclaimed 2013 release Southeastern.

On the heels of the awards, dates have been announced for a Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit February 2015 tour (see tour dates below).

Southeastern (Southeastern Records/Thirty Tigers) is an artistic triumph on the highest level. Isbell courageously opened himself up and created his most personal work to date. Through his songs, Isbell articulates his deepest fears, failures, regrets and personal growth with poetic beauty and grace.

Watch Isbell perform his winning song "Cover Me Up" on Austin City Limits:

"Do the things that scare you. That's the good stuff,” Isbell stated during his Song of the Year acceptance speech. Southeastern has resonated with so many as it has gone on to sell over 125,000 copies to date. The album has received an overwhelming about of support from the press.

Isbell has been on tour in support of Southeastern since its June 2013 release. Audiences have been growing steadily as venue sizes continue to increase. On October 24-26, Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit will play an unprecedented three sold out nights at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium.
