Johnny and June Cash's Hendersonville Home in Ruins

Please click on photos for a larger view.

Bee Gee member Barry Gibb bought the late Johnny and June Cash's lakeside home in 2006.  Gibb planned to utilize the home as a vacation home.  However, a blaze started during renovations and ruined the majority of the structure.  Even though it is tragic that fire destroyed the Cash's home, it seems almost fitting that the home belonged mainly to Johnny and June.

Johnny and June entertained U.S. presidents, Billy Graham, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison (he used to live next door), Marty Stuart, Kris Kristofferson, Bono, Tom Petty, and many fans and friends.  Johnny and June lived at their sprawling retreat from 1968 to 2003.  Part of Johnny's poignant video, Hurt, was filmed on his beloved sanctuary.

I photographed the property on June 11th, 2012. I have posted additional photos below if you like to view the photos.

June's favorite color was blue.  I thought this was a touching gesture.
