Band Of Brothers: X Ambassadors On Pushing An Agenda Through Music

X Ambassadors have had a promising start as a band. Their catchy single "Renegades" was used in a Jeep commercial after getting national airplay and attention from music critics. But one of their songs, "Hoping," was written in direct response to the election of President Donald Trump. The band is donating proceeds from that song to the American Civil Liberties Union in an artistic protest to the current administration. Two members of X Ambassadors, brothers Sam and Casey Harris, join us to talk about getting political in their music and the importance of putting your money where your mouth is. You'll also hear a 1A exclusive — a song written by musician Haile Supreme, inspired by the First Amendment and his life experiences.
