What is there not to like about Thanksgiving? We mean, there is the food. There is the couch. There is old Aunt Edna at the end of the table. And yes, there is football.
But now, they’re adding Luke Bryan?
This just might be the best Thanksgiving ever.
It was announced Oct. 27 that Bryan will perform live during halftime of the Dallas Cowboys game against the Carolina Panthers on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 26.
And what makes it even better?
Bryan is doing it for a good cause.
The performance will kick off The Salvation Army’s annual Red Kettle Campaign, which helps to raise millions of dollars for the poor and needy throughout the holiday season. “As a football fan, I’m especially excited to be performing on Thanksgiving Day,” says Bryan in a recent press release. “It’s also an honor to spotlight two great organizations like Dallas Cowboys and The Salvation Army and raise awareness for all the great work they do.”
“Luke Bryan is one of the biggest names in country music, but he has an incredibly humble spirit and is always searching for ways to give back and help others. For us, it was a perfect fit for what the Red Kettle kickoff represents for our partnership with The Salvation Army,” added Charlotte Jones Anderson, executive vice president and chief brand officer for the Dallas Cowboys and former national advisory chairperson for The Salvation Army.
