Johnny Cash’s former Home … A Burning Ring of Fire

 

The former home of the legendary, country great and dearly departed Johnny Cash was completely destroyed by fire. The Hendersonville, TN home which was recently bought by Barry Gibb of the Bee Gee’s fame was completely destroyed. What a tragic loss of one of country musics biggest icons. It was truly a historic address where so many events took place in the long history of country music.

“So many prominent things and prominent people in American history took place in that house — everyone from Billy Graham to Bob Dylan went into that house,” said singer Marty Stuart, who lives next door and was married to Cash’s daughter, Cindy, in the 1980s. (WFAA)
