Country music fans now have the opportunity to purchase one of the most legendary country homes. Johnny Cash’s former lakeside property in Hendersonville is on the market!
The Man in Black purchased the 4-acre property that sits along Old Hickory Lake back in 1968 and he made it the famous landmark it is today. It was the home that he shared with June Carter Cash for the majority of their 35-year marriage and they hosted some very impressive house guests. They welcomed visitors like Bob Dylan, Al Gore, Billy Graham and even former President Ronald Reagan.
The house was featured in Walk the Line, it was where Cash hosted his star-studded guitar pulls and it was the scene for his last music video, “Hurt.” It’s a music lover’s haven.
The gated-property has a pool, garage, tennis court, guard station and a boat dock on OHL. The current owner also remodeled the wardrobe that was formerly used by Cash and Carter — turning it into an apartment.
Cash isn’t the only famous owner of the home. Architect Braxton Dixon and Barry Gibb, of the Bee Gees, are also former owners that planned to restore the property after the fire in 2007.
The current owner is selling due to health issues and is hoping to find a buyer that will help preserve the history and legacy of Cash and Carter.
The former home of Cash is allegedly going to be sold in an auction, according to The Tennessean.
