  8. Tommy Zamow Says:

    Anytime you roll into my home state of WV with a guitar… I’ll be in the audience. Hell, if you ever need a place to pass out while you’re in Morgantown, you’re more than welcome to invade my apartment for as long as you like.

  9. Brian Walker Says:

    War Eagle.

  10. Jason Says:

    I must say to the War Eagle folks, I’ll give you 8 points and bet you a Franklin on the Iron Bowl. Taking all comers.

    Woo Pig Sooie! just doesn’t have quite the same ring.

  15. Brent Hinson Says:

    I’ll take that bet Isbell. If it weren’t for the Vols lacking special teams, then it would have been humiliation last weekend. War Eagle buddy!

    1) Taos, New Mexico
    2) Levon Helm
    3) The Stuffed Avocado at Trudy’s in Austin, TX (trust me)
    4) french actresses
    5) songs about the rodeo

  17. Joel Says:

    Have to say the age where you don’t have trivial arguments with your parents is a great thing, thought of that a lot since hitting 30, much time wasted.

  18. Blake Says:

    I saw you at the UT game! Solid list.

  19. Justin from Wisconsin Says:

    just finished reading ‘The Known World’ per your recommendation. excellent. thanks for that. see you soon.

  20. Mike Copnte Says:

    Why do you like the G7 capo? I have one and don’t see anything special about it with the possible exception that you can carry it in you pocket. there is a cantalevered one with adjustable pressure that looks pretty cool.

  21. Tony Savela Says:

    Hej Jason.

    I’m a big fan of your work, both in DBT and with your “new” band. I would like to add the “Seven mile island”-album to the list of things that rock… “Cigarres and Wine” is along with Levon Helms “Growing Trade” my favorite song of the year. Makes me wish I was born in Texas.

    Cheers/ Tony from Sweden
