WILMINGTON — Jason Isbell has performed in Wilmington plenty throughout the years and is returning to the Wilson Center stage at Cape Fear Community College this winter with his band, 400 Unit.

The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter will be landing in town on Feb. 19, 7:30 p.m., in celebration of “Weathervanes.” It’s the musician’s ninth studio album, released in June.

“There is something about boundaries on this record,” Isbell said, according to a press release from CFCC. “As you mature, you still attempt to keep the ability to love somebody fully and completely while growing into an adult and learning to love yourself.”

A part of Drive-By Truckers, for six years (2001-2007), Isbell embarked on a solo career in 2007. He has taken home numerous awards over the years, including Americana Music Honors (both stateside and in the U.K.), Country Music Hall of Fame, and even a Grammy with his current band, featuring Sadler Vaden, Jimbo Hart, Derry DeBorja, and Chad Gamble. 

The 400 Unit “make a big noise,” Isbell said in the release. He last performed at the Wilson Center in 2022.

Artist pre-sale tickets will be available Nov. 8-9, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and will open to Wilson Center members on Nov. 9, 10 a.m. Tickets go on sale to the general public online at 10 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 10. The box office will open from 2 p.m. through 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, for in-person and telephone purchases (910-362-7999).
