The 89-year-old country star, who recently made a guest appearance alongside Dolly Parton during her recent Christmas special, drew inspiration for his hit song, Shotgun Willie, from a fire that occurred at the cabin. 

The three-bedroom house that is surrounded by a scenic landscape was hand-built by the Country Music Hall of Fame singer himself and is situated just 30 minutes outside of the bustling city of Nashville. 

Sold! Willie Nelson’s, 89, Tennessee country home has officially been taken off the market after being sold for $2.14 million; the singer was seen in September 2022 in North Carolina 

The inviting home was initially listed in October 2022 for $2.5 million and officially sold for around $2.1 million.

Since building the rustic getaway with his own hands, ‘the only individuals that have ever lived in the cabin include the country legend himself, and the current tenants,’ according to People

Nelson’s former home sits on a whopping 150 acres of land and is surrounded by lush greenery, trees, a barn, and a few ponds. 

The exterior of the cabin is comprised of both crafted, log pieces and stone details on the steps, the base of the porch, and also the chimney.

The stairs lead up to a large, wooden porch that can easily fit chairs to give residents the perfect opportunity to relax and look out at the surrounding, naturistic views. For a unique touch, a red roof could be seen on top of the home. 

Upon entering, a comforting and cheerful living room directly connected to a kitchen could be seen, with the walls made of log details. Exposed wooden beams and a vaulted ceiling offer a warm feeling for residents.

The kitchen cabinets and storage are also made of classic wood, with numerous windows offering plenty of natural light to flow inside. 

Light fixtures on the ceiling include a retro-inspired, gold chandelier situated over the kitchen table. Two separate ceiling fans were also added, with wooden blades to coincide with the theme of the home. 

A large Persian red rug is placed in the middle of the living space, along with a smaller, rectangular matching rug near the entryway. 

A ladder could be seen placed on the wall, leading up to a loft area on the second level that currently acts as a third bedroom. The interior also contains one bathroom. 

The fireplace is a main focal point in the cabin and is made entirely out of stone, providing a 1970s feel to the room.

A fire notably occurred at the home in 1970, and upon returning to see the cabin engulfed, Willie braved the flames to retrieve his guitar named Trigger, along with a pound of marijuana. 

Following the incident, the country singer was later given the nickname Shotgun Willie, which became the inspiration behind the hit track and studio album of the same name that was released in 1973.

Willie, who will celebrate a milestone by turning 90 years old this year in April, will soon be seen on the big screen. 

A five-part documentary titled, Willie Nelson And Family, will officially premiere at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival later this month on January 20. 

According to the festival’s website, the documentary which was made by award-winning filmmakers, Thom Zimny and Oren Moverman follows, ‘the highs, lows, and in-betweens of Willie’s personal life and professional career. 

A press release for the film stated that ‘alongside close friends and family who have accompanied him on a remarkable journey, Willie tells his story in his voice’ in the film, billed as the ‘first authorized work exploring the life’ of Nelson.
