Jason Isbell Picks Up Best American Roots Song at 2016 Grammy Awards
Isbell thanked his wife, Amanda Shires, who provides harmonies on the track; his band, the 400 Unit; producer Dave Cobb and those who voted, noting, "It's a real honor" to accept the award. At the end of his speech, Isbell also thanked Muscle Shoals, Ala., for "teaching me how to play music."
“Twenty-four frames roll past the camera every second during a movie,” Isbell explains. “I’ve seen some stuff that’s faster, but [it] always looks like a British TV show. That’s what the song is called, and I think it’s really interesting — it kind of sounds like the way indie rock sounded when I was 15.”
Other Best American Roots Song nominees at the 2016 Grammy Awards included the Mavericks' “All Night Long,” Don Henley and Merle Haggard's “The Cost of Living,” the Punch Brothers' “Julep" and Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell's “The Traveling Kind."
