See Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit’s New Live Video for ‘Hope the High Road’

Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit just released a new video for “Hope the High Road.”

The video was shot in Nashville at the headquarters of Pulse Lighting, the company that does all the lighting for Isbell’s shows. The performance is flawless, making the video every bit as badass as Isbell and the 400 Unit.

For casual country fans, Jason Isbell and the 400 unit seem to have exploded onto the scene. Of course, they haven’t — they’ve been at it for years. Isbell’s last three records, Southeastern, Something More Than Free, and his most recent release, The Nashville Sound have all received wide critical acclaim.

“Hope the High Road” Lyrics

I used to think that this was my town
What a stupid thing to think
I hear you’re fighting off a breakdown
I myself am on the brink
I used to want to be a real man
I don’t know what that even means
Now I just want you in my arms again
And we can search each other’s dreams

I know you’re tired
And you ain’t sleeping well
Uninspired
And likely mad as hell
But wherever you are
I hope the high road leads you home again

I’ve heard enough of the white man’s blues
I’ve sang enough about myself
So if you’re looking for some bad news
You can find it somewhere else
Last year was a son of a bitch
For nearly everyone we know
But I ain’t fighting with you down in a ditch
I’ll meet you up here on the road

I know you’re tired
And you ain’t sleeping well
Uninspired
And likely mad as hell
But wherever you are
I hope the high road leads you home again
To a world you want to live in

We’ll ride the ship down
Dumping buckets overboard
There can’t be more of them than us
There can’t be more

I know you’re tired
And you ain’t sleeping well
Uninspired
And likely mad as hell
But wherever you are
I hope the high road leads you home again
To a world you want to live in
To a world you want to live in
