Isbell's song "Maybe It's Time" was featured in the 2019 reboot of A Star Is Born. His most recent full-length album, Reunions (2020), is a critically-acclaimed collection of ten new songs. that showcases an artist at the height of his powers and a band fully charged with creativity and confidence. In April of 2021, it was announced that Isbell would appear in the upcoming Martin Scorsese film, Killers of the Flower Moon. 
 
In October 2021, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit released a special new covers album, Georgia Blue.

Peter One
 is a singer-songwriter from Côte d’Ivoire, currently living and making music in Nashville, TN. In the 1980s Peter One and his then duo partner Jess Sah Bi released their debut LP, Our Garden Needs Its Flowers, to mass appeal. The act quickly became one of the most popular bands not only in the Ivory Coast but all of broader West Africa, filling stadiums and playing on television and radio across the continent on many occasions. Due to the violent political unrest and economic hardship in Côte d’Ivoire, Peter immigrated to the US in the 90s to pursue his musical career. That plan was quickly derailed. Over the last 20 years, Peter has worked as a nurse in the United States, while slowly writing and recording music at home. He's now finished his first new record in over three decades. Stay tuned for more to come on that.
