Billy Dean's Barn Burns

While on tour with KENNY ROGERS this past holiday season, Country artist BILLY DEAN had to endure some bad news, as fire destroyed the artist's farm barn, at his home, in SMITHVILLE, TN. The farm barn, 1500 square feet, was part of DEAN's 'DEAN ACRES,' and contained the artist's fishing boat, tractor and many career keepsakes.
“I lost a lot things that were very meaningful to me but no one was hurt and that’s really all that matters at the end of the day,” said DEAN. “We’ll rebuild but I’m really going to miss that tractor and fishing boat this spring.”
The blaze is not expected to affect the country star’s plans for 2012 public events at his home. In coming weeks, DEAN is expected to make an official announcement about public events to be held at 'DEAN ACRES.'
