Luke Combs will help support The Salvation Army’s annual Red Kettle Campaign with a halftime performance at AT&T Stadium during the Dallas Cowboys' Thanksgiving Day game against the Las Vegas Raiders. His performance will mark 25 years of a Cowboys and Salvation Army tradition "Considering I'm a huge football fan, the Dallas Cowboys were always on our TV on Thanksgiving Day growing up, so it is a complete honor to be a part of their 25th Thanksgiving Day halftime show supporting The Salvation Army's Red Kettle Campaign," Luke shares. "I'm humbled to be able to try and help put food on people's tables and presents under their trees for Christmas. I hope lots of people will become aware of how they can help this year and beyond through my performance." For the second year in a row the Red Kettle campaign kicked of early to help those still struggling due to the coronavirus pandemic. This year, The Salvation Army estimates they will need $175 million — almost 50% more than last year — to help keep Americans in their homes this holiday season and beyond.
