Amanda Shires slides her chair back, its legs audibly groaning against the wooden floor, and leaps up from the table. She circles the rustic space, swinging one arm in an exaggerated fashion to mimic an elephant, while thrusting her hips as she hops forward. Shires, a Texas native who grew up playing fiddle with the Texas Playboys and Billy Joe Shaver, put out a series of acclaimed solo albums that mixed poetic flair with an experimental streak and roots music traditions before detonating it all with To the Sunset , which sounds like Radiohead and Kate Bush jamming with the Band inside a space shuttle. On October 19th, Isbell will release Live From the Ryman , a collection of performances culled from six sold-out shows he hosted at the famed Nashville venue in Comprising songs from his three most recent albums, Live From the Ryman captures the Unit in fine form and Isbell as a bandleader who can switch between gifted storyteller and slashing guitar player with ease. Shortly after the release, the group will return to the Ryman for another six shows beginning October 22nd — an annual tradition he always anticipates.

Amanda Shires: I had no idea I was gonna be a songwriter, because I was too young to know my own evolution. He heard a couple of my terrible songs and said I should move to Nashville and be a songwriter.
