Tim McGraw, Chris Young, Cole Swindell & More to Take Part in Tracy Lawrence’s Annual Benefit Concert

One of Nashville’s favorite holiday traditions will continue this year as Tracy Lawrence hosts his two-part Mission Possible Turkey Fry & Concert on Nov. 24.

Tracy’s daytime turkey fry at the Nashville Rescue Mission will be followed by an all-star concert later in the evening at Nashville’s Wildhorse Saloon that features Tim McGraw, Chris Young, Cole Swindell, John Rich, Mitchell Tenpenny, David Tolliver and more. This year’s concert will be live-streamed via Talk Shop Live.

Over the years, Tracy and his team have raised close to $1 million and served approximately 93,000 meals to the homeless and hungry. Proceeds from this year’s event will benefit the Nashville Rescue Mission.

“The annual Mission Possible Turkey Fry is my favorite time of the year,” said Tracy during last year’s event. “Being able to bring awareness and raise money to Nashville Rescue Mission is such an honor. As the homeless population grows in our country, it’s important that we continue to work toward understanding all of the different situations that lead people down the path of homelessness. Rescue Mission is such an important part of our Nashville community and I look forward to working with them for many more years.”

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
