“Sheryl Crow is one of the most popular entertainment artists today and we are excited about the opportunity to have her with us on Thanksgiving Day to kick off one of the most important fund-raising drives in America,” said Jerry Jones, the Cowboys' owner.
The Cowboy’s eight years of support for the Army’s Red Kettle charity drive has helped raise nearly $800 million. Past Cowboy game half-time performers have included Destiny’s Child
, Toby Keith
, LeAnn Rimes
, Jessica Simpson
, Billy Gilman
, Clint Black
and Reba McEntire
. In addition to their half-time performance, the entertainers also have been available for media and other appearances on behalf of the Red Kettle campaign.
“I look forward to continuing the wonderful tradition established between The Salvation Army and the Dallas Cowboys. Both organizations help the needy in countless ways, and together, we can raise funds to offer hope to our neighbors in need during the Christmas season and year round,” said Ms. Crow.
