I'M NOT SURE IF BARRY WOULD DO ANY ENTERTAINING WITHOUT HIS BROTHER ROBIN ...

IF THE BROTHERS GIBB WERE GOING TO CROSS OVER TO COUNTRY THE OBVIOUS CHOICE TO ASSIST THEM IN THIS ENDEAVOUR WOULD BE NONE OTHER THEN THE KING OF COUNTRY MUSIC MR KEITH URBAN ...

THEY ALREADY HAVE A CONNECTION WITH THEIR CAREERS STARTING IN THE LAND DOWNUNDER ... CONTINUING ONTO FAME AND FORTUNE JUST LIKE JOHNNY CASH ...

With Barry's problem with cold weather and his whole family living in Miami I don't think for one minute that he and Linda will move there, shame he would get more privacy. I think he needs a place to rest from all the fans coming and going to his home...and to be able to write...it would be great if he did do a couple of concerts...Robin does them alone I don't see why Barry can't do some by himself! He's a big boy!He does a lot of shows concerts in Miami without Robin so why not!As for Country music, well nay fans who has the first albums from AU will tell you they were country to begin with...

Barry Gibb should feel down righ guilty for paying such a low sum of money for an estate that was worth at least 20 million in any condition.
Tommy Cash his brother obviously needed the commission to give the house away at such a ridiculus amount. ALL I CAN SAY IS SHAME ON EVERYBODY INVOLVED. what should have been restored for the public and the son of Johnny, for a lifetime of income much like a smaller scale Graceland. This is no different than selling Graceland to whoever wants it a 10% the value. SHAME ON YOU TOMMY CASH
However I can't blame Barry Gibbs, but he could have at least shown some respect and gave the extremely low asking price.
THIS IS ONE BIG DISGRACE IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS!!!!!!!!!!

OOOOOOH......how sad that the Cash?Gibb home has been destroyed by fire...I wonder if the furniture..(the beautiful old CASH bed was saved! What a big loss for all Johnny and June Cash fans. What a loss for the Gibb family who had such great plans to restore the home to it's original beauty!!!! A BIG PART OF HISTORY HAS BEEN LOST!

All I can say is that Randy Carson cannot spell, and seems a little basic. Please have respect for Barry Gibb, he is the most prolific songwriter of the modern era, he will make a country album that will make most country singers envious. let us not forget what he did for Kenny Rogers, I believe him when he has said he has always been a country songwriter, just listen to some of his solo work, it has country all over it, give him time and space, and he will deliver the goods.

Maybe it was fate that set the house on fire. Maybe no one else was supposed to live in that house. It was and will forever be Johnny and June's house on the lake.
