Chesney's Thanksgiving performance will mark the 16th year the Cowboys have helped The Salvation Army kick off the annual Red Kettle Christmas Campaign. Last year The Army raised more than $147 million between Enrique Iglesias's Thanksgiving performance at Cowboys Stadium and Christmas, providing millions of Americans in need with shelter, food, clothing, toys and other assistance.
