Nashville is no stranger to big names and bigger houses. Music City has long been home to legends of country music like Dolly Parton, Alan Jackson, and Charlie Daniels, but we're known for more than southern twang. Because we're always curious, here's five lesser known homes of Nashville's stars!

Reese Witherspoon

It's not all about music in Nashville. Southern native and Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon purchased a sprawling Oak Hill estate in need of serious repair. The 1930's home came with a gorgeous brooke running through the property, but also a gutted kitchen, laundry room and all the problems a historic home entails.

Reese and her husband planned to restore it to it's former glory, as so few houses like this exist anymore. The couple has been quiet about their progress since buying in 2014, but we're eager to see what they done with this gem in the rough.

Jason Aldean

ACM Entertainer of the Year and a major force in modern country, few stars have seen as much success as Jason Aldeen. While Nashville has long been his home, he purchased this beautiful home in 2009 in nearby Thompson's Station, hot off his successful album "Wide Open."
The 9000sqft home features reclaimed wood floors, a spacious outdoor living space, and custom-built spiral staircase. Add in a pool and 120-acres if you want to stretch your legs, and you've got a home fit for a king.

Ben Folds

Ben Folds isn't usually the first name when you think of Nashville music, but it likely should be. Best known his his indie, singer-songwriter tunes and a few radio hits, Folds had a big hand in saving the historic RCA Studio A from demolition a few years back. His roots in Nashville run deep, and he's composed pieces for the Nashville Symphony and Nashville Ballet.
While his home might not be the extravagant estate we've come to expect of stars, it's a far cry from the studio floors he reportedly slept on while trying to make a name for himself in the early 90's.

Jack White

It's not all country and acoustic in Nashville. Jack White, front man from The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, and head of Third Man Records here in town is dead set on taking Nashville's blues roots and bringing them in to the modern age.
His gated home in Oak Hill is a stand-out from what is mostly a suburban dead end. You'd think hard rock and quiet neighborhoods wouldn't mix, but apparently his neighbors didn't even know he lived there until he dropped in on the annual potluck.

Taylor Swift

Taylor owns not one, but two Tennessee homes. Makes sense, seeing as the international pop-sensation got her start as a country star right here in Nashville. One is a jaw-dropping penthouse in The Adelica downtown, complete with a wrap around balcony and wine room. Her view of the city must be breathtaking.
The other is a historic, $2.5 million dollar, 5600sqft Brentwood mansion complete with it's own 2000sqft guest house. The home and land have a storied history linking back to the 1930's and some of Nashville's original elite. Wonder if she'll let us crash for the weekend?
