Jason Isbell and Amanda Shires Share New Track “The Color of a Cloudy Day”


Jason Isbell and wife Amanda Shires have released an acoustic duet titled “The Color of a Cloudy Day” for Amazon’s Amazon Acoustic playlists, which features exclusive songs written by some of today’s top songwriters. The song is a rare collaboration between the pair, who frequently join each other on stage but almost never co-write.

“Usually we only help each other edit songs that we write individually,” Isbell said.¬†“This song deals with crime and punishment. The protagonist isn’t exactly innocent, but he isn’t guilty of the crime for which he’s being punished.”
