House of Cash


1 comment

To the editors:

I have a correction to David Whiteis's November 13 review of the recent Johnny Cash concert: Cash's "posh Nashville estate" (which is actually in nearby Hendersonville) is not called "Cashville." It is called the House of Cash. And it is posh.

I know this because I attended the same Nashville elementary school as Johnny Cash's son, John Carter Cash, and John Carter's weekend sleep-overs at the House of Cash were the talk of the school.

Once Johnny Cash rented out a movie theater and took the entire school to see Superman. What a guy.
