Tracy Lawrence Talks Giving Back, Donates More Than $300,000 To Homeless Charities in November

Tracy Lawrence hosts an annual turkey fry, concert and golf classic aimed at giving back to the Nashville community.

Tis the season for giving back, and country singer Tracy Lawrence is embracing the trend with both arms.

Lawrence opened his wallet to Middle Tennessee charities on Giving Tuesday, spotlighting organizations aimed at ending homelessness across the area. The "Alibis" singer gave $10,000 each to Safe Haven, People Loving Nashville, Shower Up, The Laundry Stop, Brooks House and Open Table.

His generosity comes on the heels of his annual Mission Possible Turkey Fry and Benefit Concert last week that cooked a record-breaking 1,200 turkeys to feed more than 9,600 hungry people this holiday season. In addition to his turkey fry, Lawrence's following benefit concert featuring Gary Allan, Travis Denning, Alexandra Kay and Halfway to Hazard raised an additional $250,000 for Nashville Rescue Mission.

"While we were able to reach new records at the Turkey Fry last week, we realize there is a growing need around Middle Tennessee that continues to need our support," Lawrence said in a statement. "We're thankful for all our supporters that make it possible for us to lend a hand to multiple organizations."

The singer's philanthropy doesn't stop there. In 2020, Lawrence and the organization added a celebrity golf classic to its annual list of events. The fundraiser, which happens every spring, has raised more than $800,000 for Middle Tennessee homeless charities.

Lawrence is capping a year that has seen his career ramping up again. With 18 No. 1 songs to his credit, the singer has capitalized on the surge in the popularity of 90s country music. He shared the stage this year with Jason Aldean and Brad Paisley and had a co-headlining tour with Clay Walker. He also hosts his nationally syndicated radio show "Honky Tonkin' With Tracy Lawrence" and recently launched his first podcast, "TL's Road House."

"My management has done such a great job at getting my brand value back up and my visibility back up," Lawrence told Country Insider. "I have a great social media team, a lot of good communication, and a lot of strategy meetings. Getting momentum is so hard, and once you get it, keeping it going is even harder."
