Cash's Tennessee home destroyed by fire

Posted on Tue, Apr 10, 2007 at 4:59 PM

Joanne Cash, the sister of the late great Johnny Cash, responded in a press release about the fire that destroyed the country icon's Hendersonville, Tenn., home earlier today:

"Of course we are all in a state of shock. I feel that an era has passed. Just today in prayer, I had decided to move on, even discarding old newspaper clippings not realizing that this terrible thing would happen. My prayers are with the Cash family and especially the Gibb family during this time."

The Hendersonville, Tennesse home of Johnny Cash has been destroyed by a fire, that broke out at appoximately 2pm CST this afternoon. The 13,000 square-foot house was purchased by Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees in 2006, and it was under renovation at the time of the fire. Initial reports indicate that the house was completely destroyed.

Joanne Cash is available for interviews on request. Her new CD, Gospel, was released February 20th, and includes three previously unreleased duets with her famous brother. For more information, visit
