Alan Jackson Helps Dedicate House as Part of National Habitat for Humanity Home Builders Blitz
The legendary Alan Jackson and Ply Gem®, a manufacturer of building products, recently helped dedicate a house with a Nashville-area family as part of the Habitat for Humanity national Home Builders Blitz week.
Jackson was named ambassador of the Home for Good project by Ply Gem and his song, “You Can Always Come Home,” has become the anthem for the program.
“This is the reason why I love this country so much – we step up and we give of our time. Thank you Ply Gem and Habitat for Humanity,” Jackson said before handing the house keys over to Rutherford County Area Habitat homeowner Keosha Hendricks, and her daughter Akori’ Yanah. “This is just a house, but you and Akori’ will make it a home.”
Hendricks did her best to hold back tears as she accepted the keys from the Country music superstar.
“I’m so grateful to be a part of this program. The experience has been amazing and my daughter is going to have a stable, healthy home,” she said through tears. “Thank you Habitat, Ply Gem and Alan. We finally have a home to call our own.”
Jackson’s wife Denise was also on hand for the dedication. Watch more in the video above.
