Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood Build Memphis Home with Habitat for Humanity

Country music’s power couple joined forced with Habitat for Humanity to help make one Memphis family’s dream come true.

On Nov. 2, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood headed south to join former President Jimmy Carter and wife Rosalynn to help build a new home for a local family in need. The famous couple has volunteered with the organization and the Carters for many years.

“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,” a press release stated. “Brooks and Yearwood have been supporting Habitat since 2007, including building homes after Hurricane Katrina and in Haiti following the 2010 earthquake.”

 

Brooks and Yearwood were all smiles as they got to work, hammering nails and raising the walls of the structure alongside other volunteers. The pair even spent extra time after the build greeting and taking photos with other volunteers and fans.

The two will return to Memphis next year for the organization’s 33rd annual Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project, which is set to take place Aug. 21-27. For now, Brooks is back in Nashville and will be in attendance at tonight’s (Nov. 4) 49th annual CMA Awards, where he is nominated for Entertainer of the Year.
