Blurt winner of our 2013 Artist Of the Year award Jason Isbell apparently has a certain segment of his fan base that greatly admires him but is a bit in the dark about his career to date; we plan to rectify that by sending a copy of the issue of BLURT featuring Isbell on the cover to one of the NBC producers at The Voice. Said producer apparently sent an invite to Isbell that read thusly: “I came across Jason Isbell online and was hoping to chat with him about auditioning for us if it’s something that interests him?” This would be for the eighth season of the reality program.
