Hear Jason Isbell and Amanda Shires Strip Down ‘Born in the U.S.A.’ on Rollingstone.com

“‘Born in the U.S.A.’ is one of my favorite songs of Springsteen’s, making it one of my favorite ever,” Isbell tells Rolling Stone. “I love that the song paints a picture of struggle in the face of the American dream, and the irony in the chorus is delivered with such force that it nearly transcends irony altogether.”- Jason Isbell

Best Marriage Proposal: That Couple During Jason Isbell’s Set

It happened near the end of Jason Isbell’s set, right when he played “Cover Me Up,” the romantic, twangy, bedroom-eyes ballad off his latest, Southeastern. Isbell in fact wrote the song about his band’s fiddle player and now-wife Amanda Shires, so it was surprisingly unsurprising when mid-way through, a pocket of the subdued crowd all turned and lovingly gazed at a couple who had just gotten engaged. Did someone just get married? Isbell asked the crowd. “Congratulations,” he quipped. “I hope that song works as well for you as it did for me.” -RollingStone.com
