The numbers are in and Tracy Lawrence has raised $175,000 for the Nashville Rescue Mission this year. That’s the largest amount the even has ever had in its entire 16 years.

Every year, just before Thanksgiving, Tracy hosts what he calls the Mission: Possible Turkey Fry and Benefit Concert, it gives support to the homeless and those in need.

During the annual turkey fry, Tracy was presented with the honorary title of Tennessee Colonel in recognition of his philanthropic service to Nashville and the state of Tennessee.
