Storytellers Sneak Preview: My Morning Jacket Gets “Golden” Advice from Grandma


When Jim James visited his grandmother for Christmas in 2001, and told her he and his band My Morning Jacket had gotten a van and would start touring and playing bars, she warned the frontman, “Bars are dark and lonely places.”

Not exactly the most encouraging thing to hear, but the band took it to heart, and even quoted her in “Golden,” a song from 2003’s It Still Moves. Hear James tell the whole story, and their tender rendition of the song, in the clip above, and watch VH1 Storytellers: My Morning Jacket on Friday, June 3rd at 11pm.
