LEE GREENWOOD CHRISTMAS WITH THE HARRIS FAMILY

LEE GREENWOOD AND “EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION” CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS WITH THE HARRIS FAMILY OF SMITHVILLE, TEXAS

COUNTRY MUSIC SUPERSTAR PERFORMS “GOD BLESS THE USA” IN THE HOLIDAY TRIBUTE TO OUR WOUNDED VETERANS AIRING DECEMBER 10, 2012

Nashville,
TN (December 7, 2012) – “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” returns with a
new two hour primetime holiday-themed special episode with Ty
Pennington and the team of designers, “Harris Family, Parts 1 & 2,”
on MONDAY, DECEMBER 10 (8:00-9:00 & 9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on ABC. 

On February 19, 2007, while on patrol in Iraq, a massive IED struck the
truck that SSG Shilo Harris was traveling in resulting in devastating
injuries, with burns to over 40% of his body.  During the months of
painful surgeries that followed, Shilo and his loyal wife, Kathreyn,
found a true calling — to help wounded warriors through the agonizing
and traumatic processes of recovery, rehabilitation and learning to face
a life that will never be the same. Shilo, once sufficiently healed,
began a career as a motivational speaker, giving hope to others
similarly wounded, while Kathreyn, taking up the cause as well, began
working for the Army Wounded Warrior Project. Shilo and Kathreyn have
dedicated their lives to giving back.

In honor of Shilo, Greenwood performs “God Bless the U.S.A.” in this
moving holiday-themed tribute to our wounded veterans. 2013 marks the
30th Anniversary of Greenwood’s self-penned patriotic anthem.  The
impact this song continues to have is immeasurable. It has been a source
of pride and patriotism at naturalization ceremonies, public
celebrations, and military events, and a source of comfort and solace to
those whose family members have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
