The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) issued a press release on Monday (Aug. 20) attacking Democratic Tennessee Senate candidate Phil Bredesen, and more specifically, Jason Isbell and Ben Folds.   

The two are scheduled to play at Bredesen's benefit concert later on in the day, and the NRSC vocalized their disdain over Folds' support for Bernie Sanders and Isbell's comments on Christians who voted for Donald Trump. The release is titled, "Phony Phil partners with the unhinged left."   

Isbell responded to the slam on Twitter, making light of the situation. See below.
