    Randy Travis joined forces with Extreme Makeover: Home Edition to help the Elcano family get a brand new Bakersfield home and raise $60,000 for the kids college funds. The show will air on Sunday, November 21 on the ABC Television Network (8:00 - 9:00 p.m., ET/PT.) Travis' new CD, Passing Through was released on Tues. Nov. 9. His new single, "Four Walls," which is performed during the set at the Elcano fundraiser during the show, is about a simpler time on the farm when "Four walls, three words, two hearts and one love" were all anyone needed.

    Glen and Jennifer Elcano were living their dream, spending practically 24 hours a day together operating their small family farm in Bakersfield, California. He would harvest feed and hay while she drove the bale truck behind him. Then one fateful day, Glen was driving home from making a delivery when a car accident killed him instantly. Now, Jennifer and her two young children are barely managing the farm on their own. She and the kids have hardly had time to mourn Glen's death, must less keep the farm running and make repairs to their small 100-year-old dilapidated farmhouse. The cast of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" and Randy Travis came together with several hundred members of the local community to help the Elcano?s get a new start on life on the farm.
