BYUtv's original TV series, "The Song That Changed My Life" (www.thesongthatchangedmylife.com), tells the story behind an artist's inspiration and reveals the song that changed the direction of their life.
Now in its second season, the series features musical legends such as Joe Henry, Howard Jones, Mike Peters of The Alarm and Big Country, and Sondre Lerche. For American singer-songwriter, fiddler and guitarist Sara Watkins, that song is "Señor (Tales of Yankee Power)" by Bob Dylan which she heard at the age of 15. Hearing Dylan's unique style of storytelling for the first time, "Señor" had a profound impact upon her as a musician.
On Wednesday, February 13, at 6 p.m., the fifth episode invites audeinces into Watkins' world, thought and creative process as she shares how music has influenced her life. Watkins, formerly of the progressive bluegrass group, Nickel Creek, was part of the Prairie Home Companion "Summer Love" Tour with Garrison Keillor in 2010, toured with The Decemberists in 2011 and performed in Park City in early January.
