NASHVILLE - Country singer Tanya Tucker has sold her home and several hundred acres near Nashville to an investor who says he plans to build an upscale subdivision and golf course.

The 22,620-square-foot main house, which was featured along with Tucker and her family in the 2005 TLC reality series "Tuckerville," will become the clubhouse.

Eagle Ridge Investments recently bought the 500-acre property off State Route 840 in Williamson County plus an adjoining 160 acres for $13.5 million, according to one of the investors, D.J. Keehan.

"There's just beautiful terrain over there," Keehan said. "It's a gorgeous piece of land for a golf course."

Tucker's agent did not immediately return a phone message about the sale on Thursday.

Plans call for construction of 495 houses around an 18-hole public golf course and a public restaurant.

Construction is expected to begin this summer, with the first homes to be sold next year starting around $550,000.

"People are looking to move back to the rural areas," Keehan said. "They're looking for something quieter. It's unbelievably tranquil and peaceful out there."

NEW YORK - Lindsay Lohan made David Letterman's heart beat faster when she told him she plays a stripper in her next film, "I Know Who Killed Me."

"You're just gonna kill me, you know I have a heart condition. You're just gonna kill me," the CBS' "Late Show" host said Wednesday night.

The 20-year-old actress said the audience will be seeing "a lot" of her in the "really dark, scary film."

Lohan also said she took lessons for the role.

"It's really difficult to get yourself up there," she said.

Lohan was at a loss for words when Letterman talked about her "Georgia Rule" co-star Jane Fonda. Last year, Fonda praised a studio executive's scolding of Lohan for her absences on the set of the movie.

"You're 20, Jane Fonda is 70 for god's sakes and looks just tremendous, and more than looks great, has this palpable sense of vitality," Letterman said. "It radiates."

Lohan was silent for a moment, then replied: "She does, no, she's amazing."

"Georgia Rule," also starring Felicity Huffman, was to open in theaters Friday.
