Former Drive-By Truckers singer-songwriter Jason Isbell will return to Sydney in the New Year for a show alongside Tift Merritt.

Isbell has been to our shores in the past to play support slots for the likes of Ryan Adams and Justin Townes Earle. He’s bringing with him his new record, Southeastern, due out in February and full of songs exposing his innermost thoughts. North Carolina export Merritt, meanwhile, has recently put out the not-so-suitably-titled Travelling Alone.
