Jason Isbell, a Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, will not perform in Derby City this weekend after contracting COVID-19.
Isbell and his band, the 400 Unit, were scheduled to perform at The Palace Theatre in Louisville on Friday, January 14 and Saturday, January 15. The singer tweeted that he is “fine,” but that he will have to reschedule the Louisville shows, as well as those in Columbus, Ohio, Wilkes-Barre, Pa., and Wilmington, N.C. Two shows in Asheville, N.C., were canceled entirely.
Those who purchased tickets will be eligible for refunds.
Isbell said he is vaccinated and is experiencing only mild symptoms of the virus.
“Georgia Blue,” Isbell’s most recent album, was released in October.
