Jason Isbell has become a favorite of David Letterman. Dave doesn't gush about many of his musical guests. We all know how much of a fan he was of the late Warren Zevon. He seemed genuinely impressed recently by Vintage Trouble. Dave has also been effusive in his praise of Isbell when he makes the rounds as he did last night.
Southeastern is one of my favorite records of 2013 and "Stockholm" one of its finest songs so I was excited when I learned that's what he was playing. The performance didn't disappoint. It is spirted, inspired, and wonderful. You need to check this out and then -- and this is rare -- I'm with Dave: you need to buy this record.
