Tracy Lawrence To Receive The 2023 CRS Humanitarian Award
Has done much to help homeless
Tracy Lawrence will get a special accolade during the 2023 Country Radio Seminar. The singer is this year’s recipient of the CRS Humanitarian Award, an honor given each year to a star whose philanthropic efforts leave lasting impacts on the causes they champion.
Lawrence’s charitable efforts often revolve around homelessness. His annual Turkey Fry and Benefit Concert, a staple of the Nashville community’s Thanksgiving season, has provided 73,000 meals since its inception. In 2022 alone, the event fried a record-setting 1200 turkeys to be distributed to families across Middle Tennessee. An array of star guests have lent their talents to the benefit concert portion of the Turkey Fry, too: Travis Denning, Gary Allan and Alexandra Kay are all recent performers at the event.
Additionally, the singer’s Mission: Possible initiative has raised more than $2 million to support unhoused people over the years. As part of his charitable work, the singer mounts a Mission: Possible Celebrity Golf Classic every year; the event raised $800,000 across its first two years.
