Fire Destroys Longtime Home of Johnny Cash

Methinks the Johnny's ghost didn't like the idea of a Bee Gee living in his house.

A piece of history lost, certainly. But a rather poetic end if you ask me.

At least the place can't be turned into some type of Graceland exhibit.

At 2.3 Mil I do hope it was insured.
