On this day April 10, 2007

The former home of Johnny Cash burnt to the ground. Cash and his wife June Carter used the base in Tennessee to write many of their songs, and to entertain fans and US presidents. Part of Cash’s famous late-period video “Hurt” was shot inside the house, 20 miles north-east of ‘country music capital’ Nashville. After the couple’s deaths in 2003, the home in Henderson was bought by Bee Gee Barry Gibb who was preparing to refurbish the property when fire struck – within a few hours, only the stone chimneys remained of the building.
