Hear It Here: Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Jason Isbell, Steve Earle, Rosanne Cash & The War and Treaty Collaborate On "The Times They Are A-Changin'"

The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Jason Isbell, Steve Earle, Rosanne Cash and The War and Treaty collaborate on the old 1964 Bob Dylan classic, "The Times They Are A-Changin'." 

All proceeds from the song will support Feeding America. Their mission is to feed America’s hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage our country in the fight to end hunger. Just $1 can help provide at least 10 meals to kids, families and individuals facing hunger.

Nitty Gritty Dirt Band lead singer Hanna begins and ends the song on lead vocals, but each guest adds their own vocal approach to their respective verse. Isbell’s brings a country-folk drawl while Cash takes an elegant ballad approach, all before Michael and Tanya Blount Trotter of the War and Treaty bring home the song’s fourth verse.

“I’ve been a fan of Bob Dylan’s since I was a teenager, living in California,” said Hanna. “I was fortunate enough to see him sing ‘The Times They Are A-Changin’ in concert the year the song was released.”

“It moved me deeply then and that hasn’t changed,” Hanna said of the song upon its release. “The lyrics are as relevant today as they were when Dylan wrote it. Maybe even more so.”
