Jason Isbell Joins the SteelDrivers on New Song 'Brother John'
Isbell assists on slide guitar and also co-produced the song, which was co-written by the SteelDrivers lead singer Gary Nichols and Barry Billings. "I think he pushed us a little more," Nichols told Rolling Stone Country of Isbell's help on the track.
"If you listen to the songs we cut, they're almost on the edge of 'slow,' which with a banjo roll doesn't always work. He just allowed us to just be the band in the studio, and we kind of let him drive."
The nearly four-minute track is a murder ballad where the SteelDrivers tell the tale of love gone terribly wrong. Read more and listen to the track here.
