White Intimidated By Cash Home
THE WHITE STRIPES frontman JACK WHITE fell in love with JOHNNY CASH's home in Nashville, Tennessee, and came close to buying it, but was too overwhelmed by the thought of living in his idol's former house. The singer recently relocated from his hometown of Detroit, Michigan, to Nashville after falling in love with the city while recording an album with country music legend LORETTA LYNN in 2003. The rocker and his new wife, British model KAREN ELSON, looked at Cash's home in nearby Hendersonville and immediately fell in love with the property. After much deliberation, White decided he wouldn't feel comfortable in the music legend's home. He explains, "It would be like living in a museum or something." The couple eventually bought a place on a street which was home to HANK WILLIAMS and GEORGE JONES.
