Video | Graham Nash Shares Levon Helm Tribute

Legendary performer Graham Nash was a huge fan of the late The Band drummer Levon Helm. When Graham found out Helm was near death, Nash wrote a song about the Arkansas native and recently performed the tune on a visit to a UK television show.

“Back Home” contains many references to Helm including the line “take a load off” similar to what Levon sings in “The Weight.” We were struck by Nash’s heartfelt delivery of the song and thought you might be too. Take a peek:
