Trace Helps a Hero
Trace Adkins will be the celebrity volunteer for an upcoming edition of the popular ABC-TV series, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, to help a wounded police officer in Lancaster, Texas.
Carlton Marshall lost most of his mobility and all of his hearing after being shot while leading a Dallas Police Department SWAT team. He suffered severe spinal cord damage, followed by hearing loss and a stroke. The family home was becoming infested with snakes and the foundation was sinking rapidly. The Marshals had hoped to modify their home to meet their needs and continue their long-time volunteer work with a horseback riding therapy program for children and adults with mental and physical challenges. Trace will be one of the volunteer workers helping to rebuild the home. This episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition will air at a later date.
