Jason Isbell sings 5 Bob Dylan songs – Happy Birthday Jason Isbell

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_message message_box_color=”mulled_wine” icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-quote-left”]When he (Dylan) was at his best he was as good as anybody,” Isbell said. “I think Dylan is a starting point that you will come back to a lot of times if you write songs for a living. I still find myself going back to his catalog and finding new things in it. … With Bob Dylan, I know I’m never going to wake up and not want to listen to Bob Dylan anymore.
