Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit Play 2nd Tom Petty Cover At 2nd Ryman Show


For the second consecutive night Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit paid tribute to Tom Petty at The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Like Monday’s opener at the historic venue, Tuesday’s show featured an encore that began with another cover of a classic Petty tune.

Currently in the midst of a six-night Ryman residency, guitarist Jason Isbell and his band started honoring Petty with a pair of covers during their set Saturday in Memphis. Monday’s Ryman show saw them tackle “Refugee” and last night the collective kicked off their encore with “You Wreck Me.”

Earlier in the evening Isbell and his wife, fiddler Amanda Shires, The 400 Unit guitarist Sadler Vaden, bassist Jimbo Hart, drummer Chad Gamble and keyboardist Derry deBorja offered several songs from their latest studio LP The Nashville Sound, along with selections from Isbell’s time in Drive-By Truckers and his other previous solo efforts.

Tuesday’s take on “You Wreck Me” from Petty’s 1994 solo album Wildflowers was captured by Ian Duffy, view the audience-shot video below:
