ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Country star Luke Bryan will perform at halftime as the Dallas Cowboys host Carolina on Thanksgiving Day to kick off The Salvation Army’s annual Red Kettle Campaign.
The Cowboys on Tuesday announced Bryan will be the featured entertainer Nov. 26 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.
It’s the 19th year that the Cowboys and The Salvation Army have joined forces for the holiday season fundraising event. The Red Kettle Campaign runs from Thanksgiving through Christmas Eve. Last year’s effort raised nearly $145 million.
Bryan had one of the top albums of both 2013 and 2014 with “Crash My Party.” His fifth album, “Kill the Lights,” came out in August.
Bryan in 2014 was named entertainer of the year by the Country Music Association. He’s nominated again this year.
