Luke Bryan to Kick Off 125th Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign with LIVE Halftime Performance During Cowboys Thanksgiving Day Game

Country music star Luke Bryan will perform LIVE at AT&T Stadium during halftime of the Dallas Cowboys game against the Carolina Panthers on Thanksgiving Day, November 26, kicking off The Salvation Army’s annual Red Kettle Campaign. The nationally televised halftime performance marks the 19th year the Dallas Cowboys have partnered with The Salvation Army to launch the iconic annual campaign, which raises millions of dollars throughout the holiday season. Donations help provide meals and shelter for families and Christmas toys for millions of children, in addition to numerous other social services programs year-round, such as substance abuse programs, shelter and counseling for victims of domestic violence, and military veteran assistance.

From its humble beginnings as a Salvation Army captain’s start-up program in 1891 in San Francisco, the Red Kettle Campaign has grown into one of the most recognizable and important charitable campaigns in the United States. It provides toys for kids, coats for the homeless, food for the hungry and countless social service programs year-round. As part of the campaign, more than 25,000 Salvation Army volunteers throughout the country ring bells and solicit donations to the Red Kettles.

Luke Bryan was joined by Charlotte Jones Anderson, Lt. Col. Ron Busroe and the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders before his concert in Dallas to announce that he will kickoff The Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign with a halftime performance during the Dallas Cowboys Thanksgiving Day game.

The Red Kettle Campaign runs from Thanksgiving Day through Christmas Eve and is the largest and longest-running fundraiser of its kind. It raised $144.7 million last year alone, with more than $2 billion raised since the Dallas Cowboys Thanksgiving Day partnership began in 1997. For the second year, this campaign will include an invitation for donors to share their reasons for giving on social media, and Luke Bryan will add his own #RedKettleReason.

The Red Kettle Kickoff Halftime Show has been nationally televised for all of its 19 years, reaching millions of viewers with the campaign’s message. Bryan is the newest addition to a list of Red Kettle Kickoff celebrity halftime performers, including Selena Gomez, Kenny Chesney, Enrique Iglesias, Keith Urban, Daughtry, Jonas Brothers, Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Sheryl Crow, Destiny’s Child, Toby Keith, LeAnn Rimes, Creed, Jessica Simpson, Billy Gilman, Clint Black, Randy Travis and Reba McEntire.

In addition to giving online or to the traditional bell ringers that will be stationed at retail locations across the country, supporters can donate through the Army’s text-to-give program. By texting the word “KETTLE” to 80888, donors can send $10 to the Red Kettle Campaign. Continue reading

A portion of the proceeds from the URBAN™ Guitar Collection, as well as guitar packages, will go to Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation (www.mhopus.org) and The GRAMMY Foundation (www.grammyfoundation.org/).

I’ve watched some of the greatest guitarists in the world perform and I’ve seen people just learning how to play,” said Urban.  “The looks on their faces are almost always the same and the connection with the instrument is genuine.”

Urban recently released his seventh studio album FUSE, which marked the first time that ANY country artist has simultaneously debuted at #1 on the all-genre charts in the United States, Canada and Australia. He is currently on the road for his “Light The Fuse Tour“.  At each show, Keith uses the standard Phoenix guitar – the same guitar that will be available at HSN – and then signs it and gives it away to one lucky fan in the audience.

We are thrilled to welcome Keith Urban to HSN,” said Joy Mangano, President of Ingenious Designs, an affiliate of HSN.  “Great stories and great storytelling are at the heart of everything we do, and I can’t think of a better guitarist and storyteller than Keith.  His guitar-playing skills are legendary, and the passion he has for music will surely inspire our viewers to pick up a guitar and play when Keith makes his debut in November.”

Urban has sold more than 15 million albums, won four GRAMMY Awards and was the first artist to win the Country Music Association’s Horizon Award®, for best new artist, and go on to win Best Male Vocalist, a title he’s captured three times, as well as the coveted Entertainer of the Year Award. He’s won five Academy of Country Music® Awards, an American Music Award® and People’s Choice Award®.  He’s had 15 No. 1 singles and five consecutive platinum or multi-platinum albums.
