Live From The Ryman was primarily recorded during Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit's six sold out nights at Nashville's legendary Ryman Auditorium in 2017. The double album features 13 live versions of songs from Isbell's last three critically acclaimed, award-winning studio albums - Southeastern (2013), Something More Than Free (2015) and The Nashville Sound (2017) - including the Grammy winning tracks "24 Frames" and "If We Were Vampires" plus fellow standouts "Cover Me Up," "Something More Than Free" and "Elephant," fully documenting Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit's emergence as one of the finest live bands on the road today.
Isbell announced his departure from the band Drive-By Truckers in 2007, deciding to set out on his own as a solo artist. His first album, Sirens of the Ditch, arrived later that year in July. The record was also released by New West Records, continuing Isbell's relationship with the Americana/folk label.
Following two full-length album releases adding the backing band the 400 Unit, Isbell eventually recorded and released his fourth solo album Southeastern in 2013. Southeastern saw Isbell's star shining brighter, climbing to the #23 slot on the Billboard 200 after selling 18,000 copies in its first week.
Something More Than Free was Isbell's breakout record, receiving the 2015 Grammy-Award for Best Americana Album, and moving 46,000 units in its debut week. It debuted at #1 on Billboard's rock, folk, and country record charts.
Live From The Ryman was released on October 19th, and charted at #38 on the Billboard 200. The double record is pressed on green vinyl!
