Every week, we invite an artist to our studio to play a cover tune live on the air for a little thing we call Copy That. This week, we were joined by one of our favorite singer-songwriters: Jason Isbell. Following the release of his new album, Something More Than Free, and hot off a set at the 2015 Newport Folk Festival, Jason joined me in the studio to talk about his new (chart-topping!) record, as well as the lasting impact of Bob Dylan’s performance at Newport in 1965. Jason caps off the visit with a rousing performance of Todd Snider’s “Play A Train Song” (which has also been covered in the past by Robert Earl Keen). Check out the performance and interview below, plus hear his performance at Newport via NPR Music. Continue reading →
