For the season premiere of A Year in Music, SiriusXM and former MTV VJ, Downtown Julie Brown, takes us back to the year 1963. Racial tensions were on the rise, which motivated musicians to help spark a change. One of them being Bob Dylan. Dylan was known for being able to read a news headline and turn it into an incredible song. Even The Beatles couldn’t stop listening to his monumental album, Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan that he released in May. He went on to perform songs from the album at March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom in August alongside fellow folk legend Joan Baez and the queen of gospel, Mahalia Jackson. Jackson became close friends with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and was even the one who helped introduce him for his life-changing “I Have A Dream Speech”. Learn more about this pivotal year in music with the sneak peek above, then set your DVR for the full episode THURSDAY at 8:30/7:30c on AXS TV!
