Bright & Early: Up In Flames Edition

June 27, 2011 9:30 AM 0 comments

Good morning, Nashville. When one of the mansions on Belmont Boulevard went up in flames over the weekend, news spread quickly that it was the home of  Cowboy Jack Clement, a legendary music producer for icons like Johnny Cash, Louis Armstrong, George Jones and U2. Though everyone in the house including Clement (and his three cats!) thankfully made it out unharmed, the fire destroyed some pretty significant memorabilia including unreleased Cash and Armstrong recordings. As for Cowboy Jack, he was left sitting in his back yard in an Elvis-print bathrobe and a pair of slippers while his $621,000 home of 40 years burned to the ground.
