HGTV’s epic reboot of ‘Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’ will feature LeAnn Rimes, the latest celebrity to join a cadre of special guest stars who will support massive community build and renovation efforts for local heroes.
In the past week, we announced the exciting news that Anthony Anderson and Laila Ali would be making guest star appearances on HGTV’s reboot of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Today, we’re happy to share another great addition to the Extreme Makeover family. LeAnn Rimes is officially on board! And yes, that’s THE LeAnn Rimes. You know, singer of the iconic bops Can’t Fight the Moonlight and How Do I Live? — not to mention, two-time GRAMMY Award winner and a 2009 recipient of the Academy of Country Music Humanitarian Award.
Rimes will be joining forces with volunteers, designers and series host Jesse Tyler Ferguson, to support massive community build and renovation efforts for local heroes. She will appear in one of 10 highly anticipated new episodes of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition that will air on HGTV in early 2020.
“I was an avid fan of the original Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, so when I heard about the reboot on HGTV, I just had to have a hand in it,” said Rimes. “It’s an honor to help renovate a dream home for a deserving family, and I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and get to work. Let’s move that bus, y’all!”
A powerhouse vocalist, Rimes has sold more than 44 million records worldwide and is a multi-award winner of the Billboard Music Awards, Academy of Country Music Awards, Country Music Association Awards and Dove Awards. She became the youngest recipient of a GRAMMY Award at age 14, winning the category of Best New Artist. On screen, Rimes was an executive producer and star of a 2018 original Hallmark Channel holiday movie, It’s Christmas, Eve — for which she also wrote and recorded original songs on the film’s soundtrack. In addition, she was honored with the Ally of Equality Award from the Human Rights Campaign for her 20-plus years of support of equal rights. So yeah, you could say she’s an asset to the Extreme Team.
