Planning on shakin’ things up? Try on this country house for size: Singer Lorrie Morgan is selling her riverside home in Lebanon, TN, less than an hour outside of Nashville, for $1.2 million.
Morgan was the youngest singer to join the Grand Ole Opry, and over the course of her four-decade career, she’s charted more than 25 hit singles, including “Five Minutes” and “What Part of No.” She’s also known for her tangled love life: The singer’s been married six times and once told Larry King that “drama is something that lets you know you’re still alive.”
So it makes sense that Morgan transformed this elegant four-bedroom, 7,372-square-foot home into an entertainer’s dream. According to listing agent Bonnie Coleman, on any given night you might find neighbors, friends, or fellow Grand Ole Opry performers enjoying pizza made in the outdoor stone oven, taking a dip in the pool, or boating next to the private dock.

Musicians have long been playing fiddle music in the Appalachians for years, but it wasn’t until 1927 in Bristol, Tennessee that the first recording country music recording deal was signed. In this year, Victor Records signed Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family.
Jimmie Rodgers was born in Meridian Mississippi, in 1897. Originally he worked on the railroads until his ill health got the better of him and it was only during this time that he followed his earlier love of entertaining. In 1927 he followed word that Victor Records were setting up a portable recording studio and made his way there.
