Country music superstar Kenny Chesney will perform at halftime when the Cowboys host the Redskins on Thanksgiving Day to kick off the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign. Chesney was on hand Sunday for the announcement at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

The Nov. 22 show will be part of the Salvation Army’s 122nd annual holiday giving effort that features red kettles for donations. The Salvation Army last year received nearly $148 million during the period.

Well, at least we hope Kenny gets some good Thanksgiving turkey dinner, since he'll be working on a holiday!
