Where there is generational tragedy, there are also heroes and a community building harmony and repairing fractures through music. In this episode, host Will Dailey guides you on a trip from a town engulfed in terror to a city repairing itself one song at a time, either with the Shakespeare of songwriting or a community invested in the power of music — all while weaving the stories of iconic rockers like Leon Russell and groove pioneers like the GAP Band as they define the sound track for the hum of the heartland.
