Get Yourself a Piece of Burnt History: Johnny Cash’s Old Homestead Is For Sale

A lakefront property in Hendersonville, Tenn., (20 miles northeast of Nashville) that once belonged to Johnny Cash is for sale. The 4.5-acre property was home to Johnny and June Carter Cash from 1968 until their deaths in 2003.

However, the 14,000-square-foot mansion that the Cash family called home was destroyed by a fire in 2007. The remaining structures on the property include a stone foundation, tennis court, swimming pool, covered boat dock and a three-car garage that Johnny and June used as a wardrobe room that has been converted into an apartment.

James Gresham, the seller who purchased the property for $2 million in 2014, has not specified an asking price, instead telling the Wall Street Journal, “There is nothing you can use as a comp. We’re going to see what the market is and go from there.”

Highlighted in the 2005 film Walk The Line, the home was where Johnny retreated for his infamous 1960 detox, where Kris Kristofferson landed his helicopter in a heroic plea for Johnny’s attention and where countless guests visited the family, including Bob Dylan, Billy Graham, Al Gore and Ronald Reagan. It’s also where Johnny hosted his legendary “guitar pull” jams in the late ’60s and early ’70s and where he sat for his final music video, “Hurt.”
