WNRN joins with the Americana world celebrating the release of the new album from Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, The Nashville Sound. It is the July 2017 Acoustic CD of the Month.

The Nashville Sound debuted at the top of the Americana Charts, came in on Billboard charts on the Rock and Country charts in the top 4, and was generally met with high praise and critical acclaim. Rolling Stone has posted a track by track review. Saving Country Music tells its readers to get over any objections to any overtly politically message Jason Isbell has in the songs and just bask in the glory of it, plus gave it a rare “Two Guns Up.”

Isbell replied to Trevor Noah of the Daily Show that he is a folk musician since he writes songs that preserve the stories of our times. Some of  these stories are: the coal miner’s children of today, a man’s post-election concern for his toddler daughter’s future, a look at love in marriage, previous romance’s demise, dealing with anxiety, then ending with a sweet tribute a family that makes music together.
