Jackie Greene’s upcoming album Back To Birth is quickly approaching, and he just shared another track from the record on The Bluegrass Situation.
“[‘Motorhome’] was a song I wrote for Levon Helm after the first time I met him some years ago,” Greene says. “Levon was such a hero of mine. I imagined myself driving through the Southeast in a cool vintage Airstream — stopping where I wanted, playing banjo and mandolin at night, sipping Coca-Cola and hanging out with my dog, Charlie. That kind of freedom is intoxicating, so I put it into a song. For some reason, I imagined that might have been the kind of thing Levon would’ve done in his younger years.”
