The Guitar House

The Guitar House is located in Fayetteville, Georgia and was built by country western singer and songwriter, Elivs Carden.  The picture below is an arial view of the home.


The completion of the Guitar House inspired his Album “Living In an Old Guitar“.  Here is another older shot of the house from a different angle I found on this site. It seems to be a screen shot take from google maps. 


You can check it out on the Google Maps Satellite image

    This is in reference to The Guitar House in Fayettevill Ga I’m A Special Friend to John David Cardin the younger brother of Elvis Cardin in my opinion and all honesty he has been put to the side with no awards for this ability to write,sing,and play a guitar professionally just because some people don’t want to share the wealth. I’ve heard his music and been a close friend by his side and to be honest he needs to be the one in nashville tn hes wrote songs for alan jackson, brad paisley, and many others he needs to be awarded he has song right now called wake up call its beautiful pls contact him thru Johns sister because family fame thru elvis dont seem to carry on thru the family to give credit where credit and honest and fame is truly from the heart needs to go to. Pls contact John David Cardin in ref to this song ‘Wake Up Call’ and have send the CD which is copy written so it can’t be taken like many others hes wrote thru close female friends that just don’t mind caring and give this song thru john singing it a chance. Thanks. Friends Always Candy Waldrop

    John Carden is an outstanding songwriter and singer. His ability is definitely a god-given talent. I have heard his pitch cd and the songs are great! Any manager for a rock/country performer (male or female) should really take a listen to his music and lyrics.
    John, your music will hit – it’s just a matter of time. You’re on the right path now! Keep your eye on the prize and your heart on God!

    There are many things about John Carden that people have over looked. His heart most of all has been overlooked from which all of his song writing and music comes from. People could not see the forest for the trees and like many who may take a wrong turn in life and we all have, John has set his sights on a higher calling and knows now what he was created for. There are three things that endure…faith, hope, and love-and the greatest of these is love. God bless the broken road John Carden. You are going to Nashville. With love.

    Hey Princess, this is Candy I’m so glad you and John are together he really needed a blessing in his life and someone to encourage him especially on behalf of his music and singing and playing I pray that he doesn’t let his music just go to waste God is definantly on his side and for all the jealousy in the past the Good always outweigh the bad in the eyes of God. May God bless both of you And Congradulations I Love ya’ll and remember that me and tracy are always your friend Love Candy

    I Love the Guitar House and know Elvis Carden well !!! He is My Sister- In-Law’s, Ex Husband and the Father of My Niece and Nephew. I think that Elvis Can Sing Very Well, as Well as Build Fabulous Houses !!!! Elvis has Wrote and Sung Many Songs, I have Three of his CD’s. My Favorite Song that he Sings is the Song “Stephanie”, that he wrote Many Years ago, about My Niece and His Great Love for Her !!!! When I think about Elvis Carden, I think of the Lovely Guitar House and him, Singing and Playing a Guitar. I remember a Summer, Many Years ago when My Husband, My Three Children, Me, Elaine my Sister-In-Law, Elvis and their Children went to Panama City Beach, Florida and Elvis was Singing Margaritaville, the Hit Song by Jimmy Buffett. Elvis, caught the Attention of everyone on the Beach, people came from all around to hear Elvis Carden Sing !!! He Can Sing Very Awesome, I Never understood Why he Never became a Big Hit on the Radio or in Nashville, TN ??? Anyway Elvis, You Still have Many Fans and Always Will !!!!!!
