Jason's Isbell's second song on The Dirty South (Drive-By Truckers) is "Danko/Manuel." It's an acoustic-based shuffle and features some really soulful vocals from Isbell. As you could guess from the title, it talks about two deceased members of The Band. Isbell is singing about the way life could be, how you don't always do what's best for you, how things have turned out to be "Something else you can't believe." It's a very powerful song and one of the highlights from a record that is full of great songs.
