Dallas Cowboys FINALLY Catch A Break, Kane Brown Will Perform Thanksgiving Halftime Show

The Dallas Cowboys are 2-5.

They have what Green Bay knew in an inept head coach, the defense has given up more points than any other team in the league, players are calling out members of the coaching staff for being unprepared, they lost their star QB Dak for the season, and their backup Andy Dalton almost got his head torn off last week.

But – there is good news, Cowboys fans.


I know, I know. Catch your breath.

The Cowboys play Washington, so the game (and halftime show) should be the furthest thing from electric.

I need to say this and put it out in the forefront because it’s important – the halftime show will benefit the Salvation Army and people in need this holiday season. It’s been a mf’er of a year and the Salvation Army does great work helping kids, families, and anyone else in need during tough times.


The Red Kettle Campaign has started early this year, and it’s never been more important to donate early if you can as COVID may severely hurt the in-person donations.

Having said all that, and how important this is, shouldn’t we go BIG? This is Texas. This is country music. People need big help.

You want people to be excited to watch the halftime show and donate, but what you will have this year is Kane Brown trending on Twitter for all the wrong reasons – I guarantee you (we’ll follow up when that happens).

Hm….I can think of one guy that would have had people cranking up their TVs and donating in droves…

Or maybe even a thoroughbred Texas boy who just signed a major record deal, but continues to put out legit country music, Parker McCollum (I know, he’s a Houston Texans fan, but you know what I’m getting at). There are plenty of big names that make a ton of sense.

Hell, Kane doesn’t even know what “red dirt” means and recently said:

“There are people who are, you know, ‘red dirt country,’ who are still on Merle Haggard and Johnny Cash, and they can’t stand me. My fans love all genres of music.”

Folks – the Cowboys fans might boo the performer more than the team. I’m sure it’ll be cathartic for them given the year they’ve had to endure.

I’m ready for Turkey Day.
