Kings of Leon Itinerary
Fans seeking the Kings of Leon experience can start by soaking up the Oklahoma landscape that inspired the song “Last Mile Home.” Although Caleb, Nathan, Jared and Matthew Followill grew up traveling the country, their Oklahoma experience takes fans to Talihina, where the band members gather with relatives each year for a family reunion. Go back in time with a trip to the attractions in the area and keep an eye out for the area landmarks revealed in the band’s documentary, “Talihina Sky.”
Stop 1: Tallgrass Prairie Preserve
Kings of Leon recorded the song “Last Mile Home” for the movie soundtrack to “August: Osage Country,” which was partly filmed in the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve. Jared Followill said, “We’ve been offered movies…We’ve said no to it, just because we had no connection to the movie. We had a really strong connection to this one.”
