    There are a few of his bigger/more beloved songs that I don't like as much.

    I respect that. It’s pretty damn hard to do an Isbell Top 10 and impossible to do a top five

    I love overseas, but it doesn’t make my top 10. Now if I’m in the truck, windows down on a nice day and at a red light .... you bet I’m air guitaring at the person in the car next to me.

    It’s been my first isbell song I throw on for the past year. Hate to say the other songs on Reunions haven’t had the same effect on me. But overseas just sticks out to me. Can’t wait to see it live again.

    This is my favorite on reunions by far. Not sure writing get much better than this..

    "Heaven's wasted on the dead"
    That's what your mama said
    When the hearse was idling in the parking lot
    She said you thought the world of me
    And you were glad to see
    They finally let me be an astronaut

    I’ve posted this in here before but it’s remarkable how he tells an entire story in 4 lines, that’s one of my favorites too

    I lost a good friend
    Christmastime when folks go off the deep end
    His woman took the kids and he took klonopin
    Enough to kill a man of twice his size

    Not for me to understand
    Remember him when he was still a proud man?
    A vandal's smile, a baseball in his right hand
    Nothing but the blue sky in his eye

    I’ve been known to get teary around this verse

    Missed the Relatively Easy discussion but that is one of my favorite Isbell songs. Southeastern is such a heavy album, largely written right around a difficult point in his life. To end it with a song that oozes perspective is just *chef’s kiss* to me.

    My favorite isbell songs are nearly everything he puts out. I can play any of his albums through completely and still want to listen to it again as soon as it's over.

    Great interview. Only Children could be a Prine song, although he was more referring to directly pulling from sings I guess.
