'The Long Way Around': Jackson Browne, Live At The 2014 Americana Music Awards

Winner of the 2014 Spirit of Americana Free Speech Award, singer-songwriter Jackson Browne demonstrated exactly why the honor was bestowed upon him with a rendering of "The Long Way Around," a cut from his album Standing In The Breach.

The song wraps a melody around a look back at his life and times, touching on gun violence, environmental destruction, income inequality and other issues. But, as he always does, Browne burnishes the politics with poetry.
