Jason Isabell Should Change His Name to Isabell Jason

By Logan McRay

CMT will be airing the “2018 AmericanaFest” on December 6th and has released a preview performance by Jason Isabell.

From Rolling Stone:

“Jason Isabell was the big winner at September’s Americana Honors & Awards, where he won three of the night’s categories, including Album of the Year for his latest effort The Nashville Sound. Later this week, the ceremony receives its cable television premiere when CMT airs 2018 AmericanaFest, a collection of performances and speeches from the Nashville event.”

In the preview, he performs the track “White Man’s World” which contains such gems as:

“I'm a white man looking in a black man's eyes Wishing I'd never been one of the guys Who pretended not to hear another white man's joke Oh, the times ain't forgotten”

And the groaner:

“I'm a white man living in a white man's nation I think the man upstairs must'a took a vacation I still have faith, but I don't know why Maybe it's the fire in my little girl's eyes”

Despite the fact that many rural Whites live in poverty and have their communities decimated by the opioid epidemic, Isabell sees fit to push a “White Privilege” narrative (using a traditionally White, rural art form) to apologize on behalf of a people he obviously hates. Where’s David Allen Coe when you need him?
