After more than two decades in Knox County, Knoxville Habitat for Humanity raised the walls on its 450th home on Friday.

For the next 8 to 9 weeks, volunteers will help build the home, but this house, in the Lonsdale community, is part of a larger Habitat project.

"This is called Music Row. We are building these homes with generous donations from the Charlie and Moll Anderson Family Foundation. They do a private concert each year in their home with a country music star," said Robyn Ulrich, who was a past chair of the  Knoxville Habitat Board.

The foundation underwrites the Music Row houses from that annual benefit concert.  

The latest home marks the fifth in the Music Row project. Also on Friday, Knoxville Habitat also dedicated the Reba McEntire house.  She performed at the fundraiser last fall, raising $250-thousand dollars for the non-profit.
