What's in A Song

In our National Public Radio series What’s in a Song, we explore the tapestry of America's musical diversity one song and one story at a time. Each installment exposes the meaning of a particular song through passion and story. Songwriters, singers, and those whose lives have been changed by song are our guides, and their words are woven seamlessly with the music to illuminate the musical traditions in America. The series is funded by the generous support of the R. Harold Burton Foundation and the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Foundation.
