Kings of Leon Guitarist Moving Because Of Fan Mail

Kings of Leon rocker Caleb Followill is selling his house because he keeps getting scary fan mail.

The guitarist has had a steady stream of bizarre post sent to his house in Nashville, US, since the group became successful in Europe.

He told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "There are kids from the UK who go to Nashville and leave me presents. My cousin, who looks after the house, hides them from me - he said I'd be scared.

"The other day I was there and left the house for a second, and when I got back there were four playing cards, four kings, with all of our names on them in the door.

"There is an apartment complex across the street and there are people renting the place out and watching."

The band - which also includes Caleb's brothers Nathan and Jared alongside their cousin Matthew - even gets visits from young groupies hoping to meet the band at their hidden farm retreat, located further out in the state of Tennessee.

Nathan explained: "We've got a farm in the middle of nowhere. It's so hard to find. But we pulled up and by the mailbox were two girls in go-go boots, little outfits, just waiting."

The band followed up winning their first Grammy by nabbing 2 BRIT award trophies for both International Group and International Album for Only By the Night.
