Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit will be hitting the road with James McMurtry in early 2018.

The tour begins on Jan. 4 in Oklahoma City and runs through mid-February.

Headliner Isbell says McMurtry, who is one of his favorite songwriters, "has that rare gift of being able to make a listener laugh out loud at one line and choke up at the next. I don't think anybody writes better lyrics."

The Country Music Hall of Fame recently named Isbell its 2017 artist-in-residence, and the singer-songwriter's The Nashville Sound is nominated for album of the year at the upcoming CMAs.
