I guess we’ll have to find another Nashville celebrity home to take the lead spot in our informal “Tour of the Stars Homes” that we take visitors on when they visit Nashville for the first time.
Sadly, Alan Jackson’s 19,000 square-foot home is now for sale. His house has been the highlight of our tour for many years.
Alan Jackson and wife Denise have said that they’ve been wanting to downsize, but it wasn’t until recently that they put their house up for sale.
The house is located at 1301 Moran Road in Franklin, Tennessee.
The stonework at the gated entrance to the house says “Sweetbriar”, the name he affectionately gave to his 135-acre property.
The asking price for Alan Jackson’s 6-bedroom, 7-1/2 bathroom house built in 1997 is $38 million.
Photos Of Alan Jackson’s Home
This 4-minute video shows everything that you can’t see from behind the gate when you’re driving by Alan Jackson’s house.
We’ve driven by several times (often, in our Jeep Wrangler that we named AJ), and we’ve even seen photos of various parts of his home in the past.
But it’s nothing compared to this:
As you can see, Alan Jackson’s home has the following:
- a 20-car garage
- full-size gymnasium
- an airplane landing pad
- in-ground pool
- 3 ponds
- several guest cabins
- 5 fireplaces
- home theater room
- marble floors & hallways
- boat dock
- huge balcony
Bordered by Harpeth River, surrounded by equestrian estates. Amenities include stocked & aerated lake with boat house & 3 ponds. 20 car garage, gymnasium, 2 bed log cabin overlooking river, barn with 2 bed apartment above, pole barn & more. Source
Here’s what the other homeowners on the block are like, according to the U.S. Census.
Take A Virtual Tour
You can also take a virtual tour of Alan Jackson’s home. In the virtual tour, you get to see all of the same spaces highlighted in the video above, but you get a full 360-degree view of each of them!
- The pool is amazing. But I can’t imagine how hard the pool boy has to work to keep the leaves out of that pool!
- And the gymnasium is really cool too. Somehow I don’t see that being used very much though.
- Alan’s “car garage” is literally a museum! What a cool collection of Alan Jackson’s favorite things!

The buyer is a trust in the names of Willis and Reba Johnson. Willis Johnson is the founder and chairman of publicly traded Copart Inc., a Fairfield, Calif. company that auctions off wrecked cars for insurance companies and other institutions. He resigned as CEO of the company in February. Corporate filings indicate Johnson’s 11.4 percent stake in Copart is worth roughly $340 million. Source
In 2010, Alan Jackson said goodbye to Sweetbriar, his 135-acre estate in Franklin, Tenn., which he sold for $28 million. The “Gone Country” singer then moved into a slightly smaller but equally luxurious home in the same Nashville suburb. Perched on top of a hill, the 14,000-square-foot mansion offers panoramic views of the scenic surroundings. The singer and his wife paid $3.675 million for the estate in June 2010, but less than a year later, they’ve listed the home for $3.995 million. Source
