For 12 years now, Tracy Lawrence has been getting together with his friends to give back to those in need during the Holidays.
Lawrence’s 12th Annual Mission Possible Turkey Fry took place in the parking lot of the Nashville Rescue Mission where volunteers manned 60 different fryers to cook over 600 turkeys.
During the event, Lawrence told us, “This event started with a group of friends…it started off innocently, we thought it’d be a great way to give back to the community…” And what a way to give back.
Lawrence also told us that he thinks they feed about 7,000 plates.
On top of that, other cities like Dallas and Louisville have gotten in on the frying and Lawrence hopes to bring it to more cities in the future.
We hope that as the turkey fry grows each year, maybe Lawrence will consider re-writing “Paint Me Birmingham” to something like, “Fry Me a Turkey, Ma’am.” Or something?
