'Cowboy' Jack Clement's Home Catches Fire, Equipment and Memorabilia Lost

Posted By on Sat, Jun 25, 2011 at 6:05 PM

WSMV and The Tennessean both report that Music City legend "Cowboy" Jack Clement's house on Belmont Blvd. caught fire today, June 25, due to unknown causes. Though no injuries have been reported, the blaze — allegedly a three-alarm fire — has already destroyed musical equipment and memorabilia.

The 80-year-old Clement is a singer-songwriter and producer (and former engineer for Sun Records' Sam Phillips) who has written for and worked with Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Ray Charles, U2, Dolly Parton, Jerry Lee Lewis, Townes Van Zandt and more, and he hosts a show on Sirius Radio that was — at least according to the site's schedule — being broadcast as the fire raged in his home.
