Sheryl Crow Buys Some Land Near Nashville

BUYER: Sheryl Crow
LOCATION: Nashville, Tenn.
PRICE: $650,000
SIZE: 15.84 acres

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: Though she can’t seem to sell a couple of the many luxury properties in her personal real estate portfolio — more on that in a minute — nine-time Grammy winner Sheryl Crow has nonetheless quietly snatched up, as we first heard word from The Bizzy Boys at Celebrity Address Aerial, three contiguous river front lots near Nashville, Tenn. for a total of $650,000.

The three parcels all back up to the snaking Cumberland River and together span 15.84 largely undeveloped acres. Aerial images show at least one farm building of unknown size and utility and a short, L-shaped boat dock.

Your Mama really has no idea why Miz Crow, a single momma to one child, would buy these three parcels. Maybe she wants someplace to park her tour bus and/or drop a kayak in the river? Whatever the case our rudimentary calculations show the all but undeveloped lots are about 13.5 miles from the 49-acre country estate in Nashville’s leafy, semi-rural southern suburbs that Miz Crowe acquired in 2001 for $3.6 million.

Like Los Angeles, the greater Nashville area is a bee hive of rich and/or famous folk and, indeed, the 37.92-acre property immediately to the south of Miz Crow’s newly acquired riverside land was previously owned by country music mandarin Alan Jackson who sold it in 2008 to Kenny Chesney for $5.3 million. The property was ravaged by floods in May 2010 and property records show the muscle-bound country star sold the spread at a punishing loss in September 2010 for exactly $1,000,000.

In addition to a gulf-front home in Santa Rosa Beach, Fla, that she picked up in early 2003 for exactly a million clams and is not for currently for sale Miz Crow owns two expansive, high-maintenance properties that she can’t seem to sell for all the price cuts in the world. In the late 1990s Miz Crow paid $5.3 million for a gated, 10.28-acre multi-residence compound that abuts the base of the Runyon Canyon hiking area in the foothills above Hollywood. She’s had the property on and off the market since October 2012 when it was listed for $15.95 million; It’s currently priced at $11,950,000.

She also still owns Cross Creek Farm, a 146-acre working farm about miles south of Nashville in College Grove (Tenn.) that she bought in 2007. The pastoral spread includes a nearly 11,000 square foot mansion, extensive equestrian facilities a salt-water swimming pool and a recording studio. Miz Crow, bless her real estate heart, has had Cross Creek Farm on and off the market for about four years at a wide variety of decreasing asking prices. First listed at $7.5 million it was later up for grabs at $5.8 million and it came up for sale again in late 2013  for $3.85 million. (The current asking price includes the big ol’ main house and 51+ acres while a three-bedroom guesthouse on 96 adjacent acres is being sold separately.)
