Country music stars Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood raised walls on a Habitat for Humanity home today in Memphis, Tennessee, alongside former President Jimmy Carter and former first lady Rosalynn Carter. They will return next year to build and repair more homes during Habitat's 33rd Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project, scheduled to take place Aug. 21-27, 2016.
Each year, President and Mrs. Carter join Habitat for Humanity volunteers in a different location to build homes and improve communities, and raise awareness of the critical need for decent and affordable housing in the U.S. and around the world.
Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood's involvement in the 2016 Carter Project will make it the country music stars' eighth time to volunteer with President and Mrs. Carter. Brooks and Yearwood have been supporting Habitat since 2007, including building homes after Hurricane Katrina and in Haiti following the 2010 earthquake.
