Johnny Cash’s Former Home Site Sold
Johnny Cash's former home in Hendersonville, Tenn., has been sold.
The home, where Cash lived with June Carter Cash near Nashville, was owned by the Bee Gees' Barry Gibb and his wife Linda since December 2007. The couple wre restoring the 13,880-square-foot home when a preservative compound ignited in April 2007 and destroyed the structure.
"This place will always be the spiritual home for the Cashes," Gibb said in January 2006 when he announced the purchase. "My wife Linda and I are determined to preserve it, to honor their memory. We fell in love with it. It's an incredible honor for us. We plan to use the home to write songs because of the musical inspiration."
According to Nashville's Tennessean, Gibb sold the property for $2 million to Lakehouse Holdings, a Tennessee limited liability company.
The house was built in 1968, and Johnny and June lived there for 35 years, hosting celebrity guests from Bob Dylan to Billy Graham. Gibb reportedly purchased the lakefront house and 4.6-acre lot for $2.3 million.
