Jason Isbell Reunites with Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley for Benefit Show

Jason Isbell reunited with his former Drive-By Truckers bandmates Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley for a special show—billed as “One Night Only for Terry Pace”—at the Shoals Theater in Florence, AL on Sunday night. The gig was a benefit for their good friend, University of North Alabama professor Terry Pace, who suffered two strokes in March.

The trio worked through a 25-song, career-spanning acoustic set that featured tracks from 1998’s Gangstabilly, 2001’s Southern Rock Opera, 2003’s Decoration Day, 2004’s The Dirty South, 2006’s A Blessing and a Curse, 2008’s Brighter Than Creation’s Dark, 2010’s The Big To-Do and 2011’s Go-Go Boots. The show marked Isbell’s first performance with Hood and Cooley since he joined Drive-By Truckers on stage during 2011 show at Huntsville, AL’s now defunct Crossroads Cafe, though he parted ways with the band in 2007.
