Tracy Lawrence Trades the Guitar for the Turkey Fryer
Annual event aids Nashville’s homeless.
It’s almost turkey time and Tracy Lawrence is getting in the spirit of the season of gratitude by sharing his blessings—and his turkey fryer—with the Nashville Rescue Mission.
On Nov. 26, Tracy hosts his 8th Annual “Mission Possible” Turkey Fry. The event brings together area entertainment and sports celebrities to fry turkeys that will provide meals for those less fortunate in the Nashville area. In the past, country stars like Jason Aldean, John Rich and Brad Arnold have donated their culinary skills for the cause, and this year, Tennessee Titans Rob Bironas and Andy Levitre, along with the lovely Titans cheerleaders, will be manning fryers.
“The Nashville Rescue Mission is a blessing to our community,” says Tracy. “Each year I am humbled by the outpouring of support from friends who give their time to be part of the Turkey Fry. This special day allows us the opportunity to help raise awareness of the great services the Mission provides every day to the homeless and those in need.”
Since 2006, nearly 6,500 turkeys have been cooked at the Turkey Fry, providing over 40,000 meals to Middle Tennessee’s homeless population.
The event is free and open to the public, or you can follow along on Twitter @NashvilleRescue.
