Kenny Chesney will give a halftime performance during the Dallas Cowboys vs. Washington Redskins game on Thanksgiving Day (11/22), starting at 3:15 PM/CT and airing on FOX. The performance at Cowboy’s Stadium in Arlington, TX will kick off The Salvation Army’s 122nd annual Red Kettle Campaign.

The nationally televised show marks the 16th year the Dallas Cowboys have helped The Salvation Army launch the campaign. The Red Kettle Campaign collected a record $147.6 million last year. Funds support people in need during the holidays, including those still recovering from Hurricane Sandy.

Since the partnership between the Dallas Cowboys and The Salvation Army began in 1997, the Red Kettle Campaign has raised more than $1.5 billion with the help of multiple top-tier musical acts including Keith Urban, Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Sheryl Crow, Destiny’s Child, Toby Keith, LeAnn Rimes, Clint Black, Randy Travis and Reba McEntire.

Supporters of The Salvation Army can also ring a virtual Red Kettle bell online at, donate by phone at 1-800-SAL-ARMY or text the word “GIVE” to 80888 to make a $10 donation to the Red Kettle Campaign.
