"EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION" IS SADDLING UP AND MOVING 'EM OUT TO REBUILD A SCHOOL DEVESTATED BY THE 2010 TENNESSEE FLOODS

Country Music's Brightest Stars Lend a Helping Hand for the "Music City Makeover"

The "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" team is taking the bull by the horns and heading to Tennessee, "The Volunteer State." With their sights set on the city of Nashville, the designers are poised to honor a community that lives by the code that neighbors help neighbors. After the devastating 500 year flood on May 1st of this year, much of "Music City" was left under water, a number of people died and there was widespread property damage. At the center of the tragedy is the Lighthouse School and the family who's been running it since 2003, the Sweatt family. The school became known nationally when news stations featured footage of one of their buildings floating down the interstate. Yet, despite the extensive damage to their own facility, the Sweatt family spearheaded recovery efforts, and to date have helped over 200 families.

The Lighthouse School and the Sweatt family are touchstones in the way that they inspire the community by lending a hand. They've provided shelter, food, water, clothing, counseling and myriad social and financial services. Many families had no place to turn to and no idea of what steps to take until the Sweatts offered them some guidance. Lighthouse has lived up to its name and become a beacon of hope to a shattered community, but now it could use some support too. Eight of their 18 buildings were damaged beyond repair in the storms, and their preschool was completely demolished. Their finances nearly depleted, they don't have the resources to hire skilled labor to rebuild the school. Lighthouse has been developing young minds for more than 30 years, but now they're faced with the brutal possibility of having to shut down the school.

The spirit of Nashville will come alive when some of country's most celebrated performers descend on the Sweatts and the school that has touched the hearts of thousands. It's a "Music City Makeover" when the community pools its resources to help rebuild the Lighthouse School. And for the first time ever, the family will find out how "Sweatt" life really is when they rediscover all that Nashville has to offer with the "Ultimate Extreme Staycation!" In just seven days, team leader Ty Pennington, designers Leigh Anne Tuohy, Paul DiMeo and Tracy Hutson, along with LP Building and Hardaway Construction, will go back to school and ring in a New Year!

The location address is: 5100 Blue Hole Road., Antioch, TN 37013-3709

"Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" is produced by Endemol USA, of Endemol Holding, and executive-produced by Brady Connell & George Verschoor. David Goldberg is Chairman, Endemol North America.
