Tracy Lawrence Celebrates 10 Years of Annual Charity Turkey Fry

Tracy Lawrence Celebrates 10 Years of Annual Charity Turkey Fry

Tuesday morning (Nov. 23), Tracy Lawrence braved the chilly temperatures in Nashville to once again host his annual “Mission Possible” turkey fry, where 500 birds were cooked and over $63,000 was raised for the Nashville Rescue Mission to feed the hungry this Thanksgiving. Tracy started the turkey fry 10 years ago, always bringing along some of his famous pals to lend helping hands for a great cause.

Since it was a big anniversary to celebrate for Tracy, he decided to add to the turkey-frying festivities by throwing a special concert later that evening at Nashville’s City Winery. Special guests included Charlie Daniels, Lorrie Morgan, Darryl Worley, Halfway to Hazard and Brad Arnold from 3 Doors Down. The night also included a silent auction to continue to raise funds for the cause. High-dollar auction items included a signed jersey from Pekka Rinne of the NHL’s Nashville Predators and a guitar signed by all the artists performing that night, as well as by Vince Gill, Brad Paisley, Kellie Pickler and Randy Houser.

Between the performances, a special plaque presentation was made in memory of the late Rob Bironas. The former Tennessee Titans kicker, who died in 2014, was a constant presence at the annual turkey fry over the years.

Now that Tracy has closed the books on his 2015 turkey fry, he can look ahead to what 2016 will bring, including a new studio album.

Brian Kelley Finds A Solo Home

Earlier this year Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard announced that while Florida Georgia Line would continue, both guys would also be venturing out to do their own musical projects. As their FGL song “Long Live” is knocking on the door to number-1, Tyler is also climbing the chart with Tim McGraw and their duet “Undivided.”

Now, Brian is giving fans a taste of what’s to come with his solo project – he shared, “There’s a new kind of cowboy in town…who’s ready to ride this wave? Can’t wait for y’all to hear this new music.”

Brian also made some news in announcing that he’s partnering with Warner Music Nashville when it comes to any future solo projects he has, “I couldn’t be more grateful for everyone who has helped me on my journey to get here. I’m humbled to team up with Warner Music Nashville to take the music I’ve been dreamin’ and schemin’ up to the next level. This is just the beginning of a whole new adventure. My vision for what’s next is a vibe and state of mind – get ready to ride the wave with ya Beach Cowboy, y’all!”
