Country star Luke Combs is at home in Dallas, showing off a Twitter photo of himself with Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott after a recent concert.

Combs grew up a huge football fan, telling the team’s website that “the Dallas Cowboys were always on our TV on Thanksgiving Day growing up.”

Combs will help this Thanksgiving by performing during the Cowboys game. The show will support The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign. The star announced the holiday performance at American Airlines Center in Dallas recently

The star said he was used to seeing his friend Elliott “jump into the Salvation Army’s red kettle, so I’ve become very familiar with their program.”

Combs said The Salvation Army’s efforts humbled him. The charity works to put food on people’s tables and presents under Christmas trees each year.

He hoped that many people would see the charity’s efforts this year and beyond “through (his) performance.” 

Past notable Salvation Army Thanksgiving performers are Kane Brown, Thomas Rhett, Eric Church, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, Daughtry, Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Toby Keith, LeAnn Rimes, Billy Gilman, Clint Black, Randy Travis, and Reba McEntire.

“Luke Combs’ energy and spirit are just what we need to put a spotlight on the campaign in this milestone year and especially when so many people are struggling due to pandemic poverty,” Cowboys vice president Charlotte Jones said.

“We are so excited to have Combs perform on our national stage for a halftime show that I’m sure will inspire hope and generosity.”

Charlotte Jones is also the former national advisory board chairperson for The Salvation Army.

Luke Combs Gets 12th Straight No. 1 Nod

According to Music Mayhem Magazine, the North Carolina native’s latest single went to the top of the Mediabase Chart this week.

“Cold As You” went to the top of the chart, and it’s his twelfth consecutive No. 1 hit at Country Radio. Combs co-wrote the song with Randy Montana and Jonathan Singleton.

The song is on Combs’s deluxe album, “What You See Ain’t Always What You Get.”

Soon, Combs gets back to work with his tour. His first-ever headlining stadium tour will also feature guests Cody Johnson, Morgan Wade, and Zach Bryan.
