In 2007, Drive By Truckers guitarist Jason Isbell decided to leave the Southern rock outfit for life as a solo artist. That same year, Isbell made his first big move by releasing “Sirens of the Ditch,” an album combining progressive country with the classic soul and gospel music born of Otis Redding and Aretha Franklin. Receiving critical acclaim, Isbell once again finds himself on the road, this time with his band, the 400 Unit, supporting his self-titled sophomore release, playing the National on Saturday, Feb. 21, at 8 p.m. $13-$15. 612-1900. — Alexander Chang
