Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees has purchased the home where Johnny Cash and his wife, June Carter Cash, lived for 35 years. Gibb and his wife, Linda, bought the rustic retreat on Old Hickory Lake for an undisclosed amount, a lawyer for the Cash family said Wednesday. Hendersonville is 13 miles northeast of downtown Nashville.
"This place will always be the spiritual home for the Cashes," Gibb said. "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."
I've always thought of Barry Gibb and Johnny Cash as kindred spirits, so this makes sense.
