Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit Announce Eight Night Ryman Auditorium Residency

Jason Isbell has shared that he and his band the 400 Unit will take on a residency series at the famed Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tenn. in mid-October. The residency, which marks Isbell’s eighth appearance at the venue, will consist of eight separate shows and feature a delicately curated opener for each evening.

On Oct. 14 Peter One will open, the following evening on Oct. 15 the Grace Group Choir will perform, next, on Oct. 16 Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit will welcome Vagabon. After a day off Kevin Kaarl will take on the role on Oct. 18, followed by Leyla McCalla on Oct. 19. Following another day off, on Oct. 21 Isbell’s wife and 400 Unit member Amanda Shires will open. Hermanos Gutierrez will perform the second to last opening set on Oct. 22 and finally, on Oct. 23 Cimafunk will open.

Back in 2021, Isbell’s residency at the famed Nashville institution showcased eight evenings of female African-American artists in the country and Americana realm, including Amythyst Kiah, Allison Russell, Brittney Spencer, Shemekia Copelan and Mickey Guyton.

Notably, the dates of the residency fall on the year anniversary of the release of Isbell’s album Georgia Blue, which was delivered after he promised the release if the Democratic party won the state in the 2020 U.S. presidential election, and features guests artists including Brandi Carlile, Béla Fleck, Julien Baker and the aforementioned Spencer and more.

Isbell is currently on tour and will remain so throughout the summer and fall, he will also make an appearance with Willie Nelson at the Outlaw Music Festival. He also has European dates with London-based folk-rockers The Rails following the Nashville residency through late November.
