Jason Isbell covers Dire Straits at Ryman – Watch

We leave you this week dear reader with a clip (just filmed on someone’s phone sorry – but thank you person with the phone, we’re not complaining) of Jason Isbell and his 400 Unit performing an electrifying cover of Dire Straits’ ‘Brothers in Arms’, a song known to make grown men weep inconsolably. The song was played as part of Isbell’s yearly residency at the Ryman which has become something of an institution in americana circles. RS Country have a full set list if you’re interested. Have a good one.
