Jill Riley recently got back from Nashville, where she saw Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit perform the sixth of six sold-out nights at Ryman Auditorium. "When the show was over, Jason Isbell and his band came out to do their bow," Jill recalls, "and he looked like he had just basically run a marathon. The look of accomplishment and pride that he was showing for the fact they did six sold-out nights at the Ryman. That had to be a dream come true."

Watch the video above to hear Jill's description of this memorable show at a landmark venue. "I'm so glad I went to Nashville to see Jason Isbell at the Ryman," Jill says.
