A shot through the window.
Conway Twitty’s mansion, Twitty City, is located in Hendersonville, TN 20 minutes north of Nashville. It was his home until his death in 1993. Many of the country stars throughout the years have built beautiful homes in Hendersonville. Johnny Cash’s home was located around the corner but burned to the ground a few years back. It appears one of the Bee Gee’s bought it and while work was being done, it caught on fire and poof, it was gone.
The story was, that Conway Twitty’s four adult children did not get along with wife number three and when Conway died there was a huge fight and many lawsuits. As always, no one wins and the home, recording studio, the kids’ homes, his mom’s house, located behind Conway’s mansion, were all sold.
Turns out Trinity Music City, USA purchased the entire complex for their live studio audience taping that are televised and special concerts that are held there. The venue holds church services on Sundays, as well as concerts featuring religious music and attractions.
Twitty City has a magical light display during the Christmas season. The kids and I visit every year so this was my first visit during summer and in broad daylight. I was hoping for a tour of the mansion, unfortunately, tours aren’t available during the summer. Tours of the mansion and gardens are free and are offered Wednesday through Saturday from 10 am – 2 pm.
I was still able to walk the gorgeous grounds and take lots of pictures. This place is dreamy. I truly think Twitty City is a potential “gold mine”. You just don’t see places like this anymore. Graceland is so commercialized compared to Conway’s former estate. If you are ever in Hendersonville, TN be sure to drop by One Music Village Blvd for a wonderful experience.
