Johnny Cash is dead and his house burned down. This sentence is a song title by Larry Gatlin & the Gatlin Brothers, and alas, it is also the truth. The Nashville-area lake house where Johnny and June Carter Cash lived together for more than three decades burned down in 2007, four years after Johnny’s death. The Bee Gee’s Barry Gibb bought it and was restoring it when it burned. Neighbors included an Oak Ridge Boy, while past neighbors included Roy Orbison and Luther Perkins, both whom tangled with fire themselves. In 2008, Johnny’s parents’ home across the street was put up for auction on eBay starting at $1.4 million.

But another home of Johnny Cash remains intact: Cinnamon Hill, the family’s winter home at Rose Hall Resort, Jamaica. Johnny purchased the circa-1747 sugar plantation great house from a friend in the 1970s. This is the site of the 1982 home invasion detailed in the autobiography "Cash." The Cinnamon Hill Golf Course surrounds the property.
