Lawrence fries turkeys to help needy

Friday, November 5, 2010 – Tracy Lawrence will host his Mission Possible Turkey Fry, on Tuesday, Nov. 23 to benefit the Nashville Rescue Mission.

"The Nashville Rescue Mission works hard to care for the homeless and rehabilitate those working through personal issues such as addiction or abuse. Our mission is to raise awareness of the services provided by the Nashville Rescue Mission to the homeless, as well as to remind the community of the 'everyday' need to support our local mission and neighbors all year-round. This event is one of my favorites of the year. It's a true and heartfelt gesture by all; I'm in awe each year of the support from my friends and the community who come out to lend a hand, make a donation, and fry up some turkeys," Lawrence said.

Joining in on the outdoor fry festivities will be Brad Arnold, GAC's Suzanne Alexander, Burns & Poe, Chelsea Field, Matt Gary, LoCash Cowboys, Lathan Moore, Lorrie Morgan, Danielle Peck, The Roys, Jett Williams and the Titans Cheerleaders.

The Mission Possible Turkey Fry is open to the public. Donations are appreciated.

Since the Mission Possible inception, Lawrence and his friends have donated more than 5,000 turkeys, provided nearly 35,000 meals for the homeless and raised more than $100,000.

Last year, Mission Possible raised nearly $15,000; more than 500 birds were cooked and served with a total of 950 turkeys donated to the Nashville Rescue Mission. The Nashville Rescue Mission shared the meals with other non-profit organizations (Meals On Wheels and Nashville Cares).

"Whether it's someone you know, a friend or a loved one, or a friend of a friend, or a distant stranger, we've all been in a bind or have suffered at one point or another. People helping people shouldn't be a 'holiday' gesture, but part of our everyday routine. Care and kindness are free; it's the 'little things' we can share with our friends and neighbors in need that will make a great difference. It's a 'heart' decision; your small sacrifice can make big changes in someone's life," Lawrence said.

CD reviews for Tracy Lawrence

CD review - Headlights, Taillights and Radios After a successful Kickstarter campaign, Tracy Lawrence has resurfaced with his 13th studio album. Released on his own label, "Headlights, Taillights and Radios" is an 11-track radio friendly album that is polished with a contemporary gloss. As always, the melodies are simple, the hooks infectious and the voice unmistakable. The single Footprints On The Moon is country's answer to Train's Drops Of Jupiter. Let's catch a ride on a shooting star We'll wave goodbye ...
CD review - The Rock On the heels of his successful Tim McGraw-Kenny Chesney collaboration, Find Out Who Your Friends Are, Tracy Lawrence's latest is an uplifting set filled with Christian songs in the vein of Randy Travis' "Rise and Shine." The songs here don't quite have the same lyrical punch as some of Travis' work, but it is a solid album nonetheless. Lawrence's warm baritone and effortless, emotional delivery make each track sound genuine and heartfelt. I'm Done is a ...
CD review - All Wrapped Up In Christmas Although there's no lack of country Christmas CDs, it's hard to find many strictly country Christmas songs. That makes "Cold Beer" on Tracy Lawrence's first ever Christmas CD something a little special. It says, in part: "I'll sit at this bar with my good friends/And we'll all toast Christmas cheer...with cold beer." It is doubtful many country folk roast chestnuts December 25, let alone do so on an open fire, but they no doubt pop tops like a Budweiser ...
