DENVER, Colorado -

Owasso residents Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood joined former President Jimmy Carter in Denver Wednesday to work on several new Habitat for Humanity homes.

Hundreds of volunteers joined them on the job site where 11 townhouses are being built.

County music stars Brooks and Yearwood have helped with various Habitat for Humanity projects in the past.

"This is all about love, you know. When you actually get out here and swing a hammer or use your drill or frame a wall, it's a wonderful feeling and I'm working right alongside the homeowner which is what we do, so they're taking pride in building their own home. It just makes you feel good," said Trisha Yearwood.

"It's just another form of love. Another form but it doesn't matter as long as we have good, safe housing in whatever shape it comes in," said Garth Brooks.

All of the homes are expected to be completed by the end of the week.
