Country Music Hall of Fame member Alan Jackson and his wife Denise got a nice chunk of change for some Nashville area real estate. TMZ reported on Sept. 26, 2020 that the couple's 22k square-foot home in Franklin, Tennessee was for sale for a whopping $23 million. Per Zillow, the home sold on March 10 for $19 million.
Per the celebrity homes website Virtual Globetrotting, Alan Jackson purchased the newly built home in March of 2009 for $795K. The four time Grammy Award winner and 16-time CMA Awards winner's abode has five bedrooms, eight bathrooms and four half bathrooms. The 22k square-foot mansion's other amenities include a 15 car garage (a downgrade from Jackson's prior 20 car garage), pool, pool house, firepit and outdoor kitchen.
The hilltop estate has a gated entrance, and it sits amid 120 acres of green space.
Such a jaw-dropping place doesn't come cheap: Zillow estimates a monthly house payment of over $100K. That's even steep for a lot of country music icons, but fortunately, it's free to window shop over at realtors French King Fine Properties' website. George Strait's the king of country music (outside of commercials for The Voice), but based on these pictures, he's not the only veteran superstar and honky-tonk songwriter living like royalty.
In recent years, the Jackson family's listed other homes for sale, including a Florida estate, their Gone With the Wind inspired home Sweetbriar in the Nashville area and a lakefront home with a two-story boathouse in Clarkesville, Georgia.
Before becoming a country music star, Jackson grew up in Newnan, Georgia, where he met and married his high school sweetheart.
