Where does someone rich and famous like Brad Pitt go to get away from it all? Why, Hickory Tree, TN, of course.
Pitt has found a sanctuary away from the paparazzi (and apparently Angie and the kids too) on the Holston River in the small Tennessee community.
Seven miles south of the Birthplace of Country Music – Bristol, TN, the town of Hickory Tree – population 7236, runs along the banks of the river. The largest city within a 50 mile radius is Johnson City, TN, population 61,028.
So what does the Hollywood star do while in Hickory Tree? He fishes.
Pitt, an avid fly fisherman since starring in 1993′s A River Runs Through It, has found the place locals call “the best kept fly fishing secret in the world.”
There are rumors that the mega-star purchased property in the area, and I am on the trail to see if I can get verification.
