Here are three of the most iconic music moments that changed the course of history.

1. Johnny Cash holds a concert at a maximum-security prison

Many people may not know this, but the late, great Johnny Cash was an advocate of criminal justice reform. On January 13th, 1968, he recorded his first live album, At Folsom Prison, inside California's Folsom State Prison.

The beloved country singer ended his shows at the maximum-security prison with the song "Greystone Chapel," written by Glen Sherley, an inmate at the prison. This was one of many live recordings Cash did in prisons; he also recorded other live prison albums, such as At San Quentin (1969).

2. The Beatles perform for the last time

The Beatles performed their last gig ever on January 30th, 1969. The impromptu concert was 42 minutes long and held on the roof of the band's Apple Corps building in London. Most attendees weren't even sure if it was really a Beatles concert.

3. Dolly Parton releases "Jolene"

"Jolene" is arguably one of Dolly Parton's greatest hits. The song became one of the country singer's first hit singles after it was released in 1973. There have been countless other renditions of the song since its initial release.
