While many people across the country are making final preparations for their Thanksgiving meal, four time CMA and four time ACM Entertainer of the Year Kenny Chesney is adding last minute touches for his halftime performance during the Dallas Cowboys Thanksgiving Day game against the Washington Redskins at 3:15PM (CT) on FOX.

With his final rehearsal today at Cowboy's Stadium in Arlington, TX, Chesney is excited to a part of the kick-off of The Salvation Army’s 122nd annual Red Kettle Campaign. “This is a time of year when many people are in need of a helping hand. I’m excited to partner with The Salvation Army and the Dallas Cowboys to encourage the American people to help the less fortunate,” said Kenny Chesney. “I hope my music will elevate awareness for the Red Kettle Campaign, and in the end, help provide a warm meal, clothing or a bed for someone this holiday season.”

The nationally televised show marks the 16th year the Dallas Cowboys have helped The Salvation Army launch the campaign, which began on a San Francisco pier in 1891. Kenny’s performance will help raise awareness and millions of dollars for the Red Kettle Campaign, which collected a record $147.6 million last year. Funds will support people in need, including those still experiencing the lasting impact of Hurricane Sandy this Christmas season.

Kenny will perform a number of his top hits from past albums, as well as his most recent studio album, Welcome to the Fishbowl, which debuted at number 1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart. Since its release in June 2012, Welcome to the Fishbowl has been certified gold and includes the hit singles "Feel Like a Rock Star," "Come Over,” and current hit “El Cerrito Place.” Throughout his nearly 20-year career, Kenny has sold more than 27 million albums and had 24 #1 singles.

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 spanning the past 15 years. Previous halftime performers have included: Enrique Iglesias, Keith Urban, Daughtry, Jonas Brothers, Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Sheryl Crow, Destiny’s Child, Toby Keith, LeAnn Rimes, Creed, Jessica Simpson, Billy Gillman, Clint Black, Randy Travis and Reba McEntire.
