“When you look back at the music that’s been a part of creating our nation…we tend to look at historical figures as something in our past as opposed to looking at people who are struggling in their present,” Tim explained on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

He continued, “Music lets you see what they were thinking at the time, what the population was thinking, what people and artists were thinking. Art always drives things forward.”
