For Sale: Johnny Cash’s Historic Lakefront Property

Current Owner Has Not Specified an Asking Price

There is no asking price listed because it’s one of the most priceless pieces of property in all of country music.

It’s 200 Caudill Rd. in Hendersonville, Tennessee — the lakefront property that Johnny Cash and his wife, June Carter Cash once called home for 35 years.

Cash purchased the place in 1968, and the couple hosted many star-studded guitar pulls through the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. Bob Dylan, Billy Graham, Al Gore and former President Ronald Reagan were among their celebrity guests when they lived there. It’s featured in 2005’s Walk the Line film and 2002’s “Hurt” music video.

The current owner finished an apartment remodel in what was once the couple’s wardrobe room. Former owners, architect Braxton Dixon and singer Barry Gibb, each purchased the home separately but both had plans to restore the property following a fire that destroyed the original home in 2007.

According to a press release, the current owner is selling due to health issues and would prefer that it goes to a buyer who would like to preserve the legacy of the Cash family.

The property is fenced-in and gated and comes with 4-and-a-half acres of land, pool and a covered boat dock overlooking Old Hickory Lake.
