What Does The Green Hornet & Honky Tonk Music Have In Common?
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.
The 1964 Silver Eagle, named The Green Hornet, now sits restored in the Ernest Tubb Record Shop in Nashville, Tennessee. A tour inside is free, but we’re givin’ y’all a sneak peek inside.
