    I'd put Crack the Case above it, although very different type of song, but pretty much agree. Feed the Fire is fucking awesome. Very excited for the new album especially with Dave Cobb producing.

    Well shit, Taylor Goldsmith has done it again. I feel like shitty bro country artists have been trying and failing to write this song since Jimmy Buffett released A1A.

    20 minute mark FYI.

    Thanks for sharing. Probably a top 10 all time song for me. And they did it well as expected.

    It’s always insane how Isbell has so many fans like this. “Mr Isbell, I was your biggest fan until someone told me Dress Blues has a line that’s anti-war!”

    You'd have to be willfully ignorant to listen to his music (much less to claim him as your "favorite") and be surprised at his political ideology. It's pretty damn apparent.

    It's like people telling Tom Morello to stick to music or the morons sitting in front of me who walked out on a Roger Waters concert because he put "Fuck Trump" all over the screens. What the hell do these people expect?

    Isbell and Earle toured together in 2009. Met both of them and watched them play to a crowd of about 30 people in Vail. Sound was so fucked up I thought Isbell was going to beat the shit out of the sound guy.

    Bummer. I really enjoyed his first two or three albums. Harlem River Blues is still a great listen. Need to check out his more recent stuff.

    Jte was dating a roadie. They had a nasty breakup and Isbell took her on the road with him. Jte felt betrayed.

    I guess I wondered if it had anything to do with Amanda. She’s on the cover of one of JTE’s albums and I don’t even think she played on it.
