The home burned to the ground after an accident involving the use of a flammable sealer. The Cash home was being remodeled and renovated by new owner Barry Gibb of pop singing group the Bee Gees. Johnny often worked on his music at the home and welcomed fellow artists like Bob Dylan and Kris Kristofferson to write with him there. He recorded some vocal tracks in the home in 2003, after his wife June Carter Cash died, but did the bulk of his recording away from the house. “It was a sanctuary and a fortress for him,” Marty Stuart told Nashville’s daily newspaper The Tennessean.
