Plans in place for Johnny Cash’s former home to become rehab centre

Papers have been filed to turn the 'House of Cash' into a medical facility

Johnny Cash‘s former home in Hendersonville, Tennessee could be turned into a rehab centre, if plans are approved.

The country singer’s old residence was sold to Barry Gibb of The Bee Gees in 2003 but was substantially damaged by fire in 2007. It was then sold to an investor from Texas called James Gresham for $2 million. Gresham has now filed new plans, which will see the property turned into a rehab facility if they are approved.

However, The Telegraph reports that local residents have expressed concerns about the property’s possible future and with having such a facility near their homes.

Earlier this year Cash’s son John Carter Cash revealed that there are four or five albums’ worth of his late father’s material that will eventually see release, following ‘Out Among The Stars’, the first of his fathers ‘lost’ albums to be made available to the public since his death.

Speaking to The Guardian, he said: “There are a few things that are in the works right now – probably four or five albums if we wanted to release everything. There may be three or four albums worth of American Recordings stuff, but some of it may never see the light of day.”

‘Out Among The Stars’ was recorded between 1981 and 1984 but was never released by Cash’s label Columbia Records. During the archiving of Cash’s estate, it was discovered that his late wife June Carter Cash had kept the tapes. “They never threw anything away,” said John Carter Cash. “They kept everything in their lives. They had an archive that had everything in it from the original audio tapes from ‘The Johnny Cash Show’ to random things like a camel saddle, a gift from the prince of Saudi Arabia.”
