Democrat-supporting Country Singer Jason Isbell Will Only Allow Vaccinated Fans To Go To His Show

Grammy award winning country singer-songwriter Jason Isbell recently announced that he and his band The 400 Unit, will only allow vaccinated fans to attend their concerts. Proof of their inoculation or at least a negative COVID-19 test is being required by the Democrat-supporting musician, before they could enter one of his shows.

“With the number of COVID-19 cases rising due to the Delta Variant, all attendees of this event must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or have tested negative for COVID-19 within 72 hours of the event. NO EXCEPTIONS!” reads a warning on the ticket sales website.

Born in Green Hill, Alabama, Isbell first made a mark in the country scene as a member of rock band Drive-By Truckers, but it is his solo work that thrust him into stardom. 

Conservatives remember Isbell as that singer who campaigned for pro-gun control Democrat Phil Bredesen in the Tennessee Senate elections back in 2018. Bredesen would eventually lose by a large margin to Republican candidate Marsha Blackburn.

“It’s been a long time since we’ve been able to go into places and play shows for people, and I don’t think that’s gonna last very long unless we do it carefully. I think it’s up to all of us to do what we can just to keep the music business running, because we’re going to get shot back down again real soon if we don’t start doing this,” Isbell told MSNBC in an interview.

“For all of our shows, everywhere going forward, we’re going to require either a vaccine card or a negative test, and we’re going to ask everybody to wear masks. I feel like we’ll probably get some pushback from some states on that,” Isbell added.

Even after Obama held a wild party wherein none of the guests observed social distancing and mask-wearing, Isbell seems too cautiously paranoid that he even cancelled a show in Houston because the owner of the venue refused to implement COVID-19 mandates.

The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, which was supposed to be the venue for the Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit concert, refuted the country star’s claims.

“The Pavilion gave Mr. Isbell and his team several options to produce a safe event at the venue and even offered to postpone the show to a date when the protocols could be implemented. All options were denied,” the venue said in an official statement.
