Virtual concert to feature performances by Lawrence, Tim McGraw, Chris Young and others
Tracy Lawrence’s annual Mission:Possible Turkey Fry and Benefit Concert has become a mainstay of the holiday season. The country music icon and philanthropist to-date has helped raise nearly $1 million dollars and prepared approximately 93,000 meals for families in need since the event’s inaugural kick-off in 2006.
This year’s two-part event, taking place on November 24th, will start the day with the traditional turkey fry at Nashville Rescue Mission followed by an all-star virtual concert event. This year’s benefit concert will feature performances by Lawrence and fellow powerhouse acts Tim McGraw, Chris Young, Cole Swindell, John Rich, Mitchell Tenpenny, David Tolliver and more.
Tickets for the livestream concert, including special event bundle packages, are on-sale now via Talk Shop Live. Proceeds from Mission:Possible Turkey Fry and Benefit Concert will go to Nashville Rescue Mission as they continue their vital work within the homeless communities of Nashville, TN.
“We actually fry turkeys in the parking lot of the Nashville Rescue Mission the week of Thanksgiving,” Lawrence tells us exclusively on The Music Universe Podcast. “It was started by me and a handful of friends that had been frying turkeys on Thanksgiving morning for friends and family, and there were just a couple of us. We got the idea that we wanted to do something for our community and it was something that we enjoyed, and we thought that we could drive awareness of the plight of the homeless and things we cared about.”
All Mission:Possible events closely follow all COVID safety guidelines per Health Department protocol.
