Kenny Chesney was in Dallas today to announce that he’d be the half-time performer for the Cowboys Thanksgiving day (Nov. 22) game, which serves as the kickoff for the Salvation Army’s 122nd annual Red Kettle Campaign.

Executive vice president Charlotte Jones Anderson and Major George Hood from The Salvation Army introduced Chesney, who joins a long list of celebrities and performers who’ve participated in the Red Kettle Campaign, including Enrique Iglesias, Keith Urban, Toby Keith, the Jonas Brothers and Kelly Clarkson, benefiting millions of people most in need.

“It’s an honor to be here at Cowboys Stadium again and to be a part of Thanksgiving Day,” Chesney said. “It’s been an incredible tradition that I’m really honored to be a part of. I just want to thank Charlotte and her dad and everybody for having me here.”

Chesney said his goal will be to keep the halftime performance upbeat, and he doesn’t expect the audience to be much different than he’s accustomed to.

“I don’t think we’re going to come here on Thanksgiving Day and play a bunch of slow songs,” Chesney said. “It’s going to be a fun eight minutes or whatever it is we’ve got on stage. I do realize it’s a very diverse audience that will be watching, but I think that definitely defines the audience we play in front of every summer, every show. We have a very smart, very eclectic audience out there.”

    I just saw him on the Giant/Cowboys game. Can’t wait for Thanksgiving. Too bad he’s going to miss his Grandma’s cooking on Thanksgiving.
