Fishman artist Jason Isbell and his wife, the fiddler and songwriter Amanda Shires, stopped by the Country Music Hall of Fame a few weeks ago and played a short live set for an exclusive audience as part of the Soundtrack of America: Live From Tennessee to Downtown Chicago series. The set included “Speed Trap Town,” which is included on Jason's latest album, Something More Than Free, released in 2015.

Jason and Amanda's performance was captured in 360-degree video and was streamed live in downtown Chicago, Illinois on a two-sided video wall, the location of which was only disclosed on the day of performance. This series of concerts was designed to promote travel to the state of Tennessee, and also included performances by Old Crowe Medicine Show, Citizen Cope, and others. 

Jason's incredibly natural live acoustic sound is powered by the Fishman Matrix Infinity pickup system and the Aura Spectrum DI preamp.
