Tracy Lawrence held his 11th annual Mission: Possible Turkey Fry Tuesday, Nov. 22 to benefit Nashville Rescue Mission.

Later that evening, Lawrence was joined by Big & Rich, Ben Rue, Jerrod Niemann and Halfway to Hazard for the second annual Tracy Lawrence Mission: Possible Charity Concert at Nashville’s Wildhorse Saloon. During the concert, Lawrence revealed a new homeless fundraising initiative he will be launching in May 2017, the Mission: Possible Golf Tournament and Charity Concert, a partnership with WSM that will benefit Lebanon, Tennessee’s Brooks House and the Nashville Rescue Mission. The Brooks House is a non-denominational, faith-based transitional, non-emergency shelter where women and children receive temporary shelter.

Funds raised by the singer at his annual event have helped provide more than 75,000 meals to those in need, and more than 5,000 turkeys have been fried and donated to the Mission.
