Nashville’s Elite Offer Barry Gibb a Warm WelcomeWhen Bee Gees legend Barry Gibb purchased Johnny and June Carter Cash's lakefront home in nearby Hendersonville, Nashville's music community buzzed with excited anticipation. On Wednesday, Dec. 13, BMI hosted an intimate reception at its Music Row offices for Mr. Gibb, along with his wife Linda and their two sons, Ashley and Stephen. The aim was simple: to introduce one of music's most preeminent songwriters to Music City's finest.
