Michael Jason Isbell (/ˈɪzbʊl/; born February 1, 1979) is an American singer-songwriter and guitarist from Green Hill, Alabama, in Lauderdale County. He is known for his solo career, his work with the band The 400 Unit, and as a former member of Drive-By Truckers for six years, from 2001 to 2007. Isbell has won four Grammy Awards.
As Isbell, Shires and engineer Matt Ross-Spang put the finishing touches on fiddle, Ritter paces the room, listening thoughtfully and saying little. It’s readily apparent, even to a newcomer, the trust he places in Isbell and the rest of the 400 Unit; with all of Ritter’s parts already recorded, he seems content to hang back and observe the masterful team he’s assembled at work. Ritter and Isbell crossed paths a number of times over the last few years, but it wasn’t until the two toured together in 2016 that they discovered a special musical connection. The news was a dream come true for Shires, who had been a fan of Ritter’s since his 2003 album Hello Starling. She particularly connects to Ritter’s lyrics and found in him something of a kindred writing spirit (not to mention a close friend). What I really like to do is talk about writing, she says. We did a lot of talking about writing.
