NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The famous Tennessee lakeside property where Johnny and June Carter Cash spent much of their 35-year marriage has been listed for sale.

According to a news release on Thursday, the owner James Gresham is selling the 4-acre property in Hendersonville about 20 miles northeast of Nashville with the hopes that the new owner would preserve the Cash legacy. No listing price has been set.

Unfortunately, their home was destroyed in a fire in 2007, but the property includes a pool, a dock, stone walls and a three-car garage that has been turned into an apartment.

The property ranks high in country music legend. Reportedly Kris Kristofferson landed a helicopter there to try to pitch a song to Cash, and scenes from Cash’s music video, “Hurt,” were also filmed there.
