Another concert, performed by the band St. Paul and the Broken Bones, will also take place Saturday in Birmingham.

Isbell, an Alabama native, is best known for his solo career, as well as being a former member of the band Drive-By Truckers. He won two Grammys in 2016 for Best Americana Album and Best Americana Roots Song.

Moore is facing accusations of sexual misconduct from multiple women, including one woman who said Moore initiated a sexual encounter with her when she was 14 and he was in his 30s.

Moore has denied the allegations and resisted calls from top Republican leaders to drop out of the race.

Trump has offered a full-throated endorsement of Moore in recent days, urging his followers on Twitter to “VOTE ROY MOORE!” on Friday while blasting Jones as a “liberal Democrat” who would be a “Pelosi/Schumer puppet.”
