How about three million miles with cool gear and serious swagger? Oh, and Ernest Tubb, of course. Nicknamed the Texas Troubadour, Ernest Tubb is one of Country Music’s early pioneers. He spread his gift for boot tappin’ toons all over North America, covering over three million miles in just nine years aboard his Silver Eagle Tour Bus.
