Alan Jackson's Nashville-area home has sold for $28 million, according to NashvillePost.com . The 18,600-square-foot Williamson County home, which also has a 20-car garage, a gymnasium and a pair of two-bedroom guesthouses, was put on the market almost a year ago for $38 million.
The buyer is a trust in the names of Willis and Reba Johnson. Willis Johnson is the founder and chairman of publicly traded Copart Inc., a Fairfield, Calif., company that auctions off wrecked cars for insurance companies and other institutions.
The ultimate sale price of $28 million is more than double the highest figure any single-family residential parcel in Middle Tennessee is known to have sold for in recent memory, according to the website.
