Jason Isbell Adds Springtime Dates to 2018 Tour Schedule
Americana fans can rejoice: Jason Isbell has officially announced that he is extending his January tour with 19 new dates. According to Rolling Stone, the singer's trek, originally scheduled to come to an end in February, will pick back up in April with dates in Florida, Texas, California and more.
Along with his band the 400 Unit, Isbell kicked off the tour in support of his June 2017 album The Nashville Sound. The critically acclaimed album netted Isbell his first CMA Awards nomination, as well as a Grammys nod for Best Americana Album in 2018. The new dates almost double Isbell's tour, which was originally slotted to take him to 22 cities.
James McMurtry joins Isbell as his opening act through February, and on the recently announced second leg of the tour, English singer-songwriter Richard Thompson is scheduled as the supporting act for most of Isbell's new dates (the exact details of Thompson's performances have not yet been revealed). Tickets for shows starting in Savannah, Ga., in April will go on sale on Jan. 12 on Isbell's official website.
