During the football game halftime show, Combs, surrounded by Dallas Cowboys’ cheerleaders, treated viewers to an epic performance, which served as the kickoff to the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign, which is now in its 131st year.
Live from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, the North Carolina native, wearing a Dallas Cowboys’ hat and playing a blue acoustic guitar, performed a medley of his fan-favorite hits, including “When It Rains It Pours,” “Beautiful Crazy” and “Beer Never Broke My Heart.”
The performance was a “dream come true” for Combs as he always wanted to play the AT&T Stadium.

“Considering I’m a huge football fan, the Dallas Cowboys were always on our TV on Thanksgiving Day growing up, so it is a complete honor to be a part of their 25th Thanksgiving Day halftime show supporting The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign,” Combs shared ahead of the performance.
“Being here, helping the Salvation Army and the Cowboys and just giving back any chance that I have… I’m just a lucky guy and just enjoying it everyday I get to do it. It’s a pleasure,” Combs previously shared.
The Salvation Army is calling the 2021 campaign the most important yet, as the organization will provide Christmas gifts, food, shelter, rent, and utility assistance to millions of people struggling to keep a roof over their heads this holiday season due to pandemic poverty.
“Luke Comb’s 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,” said Charlotte Jones, executive vice president and chief brand officer for the Cowboys and former national advisory board chairperson for The Salvation Army. “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.”
The Salvation Army began its holiday fundraising campaign early for the second year in a row to ensure that hope marches on for millions combating the long-term effects of pandemic poverty. More than 4.6 million could face eviction and homelessness, while millions more face a daily challenge to put food on the table and pay bills like electric, water, rent, and mortgage.
“The Salvation Army could never express the full breadth of our gratitude for 25 years of an inspiring partnership with the Dallas Cowboys,” said Commissioner Kenneth G. Hodder, national commander of The Salvation Army USA. “It takes an army of partners and supporters to care for our most vulnerable neighbors, and we’re encouraged to see the Cowboys continue rising to the occasion each year.”
