Country singer Thomas Rhett will help football fans nationwide celebrate Thanksgiving as the halftime performer during the Dallas Cowboys game on Thursday, Nov. 23.

The announcement was made Tuesday morning on Twitter.

Rhett recently released his third studio album, Life Changes, which reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200. One of the singles, "Craving You," includes a cameo from Arlington-raised country darling Maren Morris. No word on if she will make an appearance in her hometown on Thanksgiving.

Rhett is the latest in a long line of country musicians to perform during Thanksgiving halftime. In 2016, the honor went to Eric Church and in 2015, it was Luke Bryan. Kenny Chesney performed in 2012 and Keith Urban performed in 2010.

The halftime performance kicks off the annual Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign, which raises money to provide food and shelter to the homeless and hungry, as well as Christmas toys to underprivileged children. The campaign, which runs Thanksgiving Day through Christmas Eve, has raised $2.2 billion since the Cowboys partnership began on Thanksgiving Day in 1997, according to a statement. 

The Dallas Cowboys take on the Los Angeles Chargers at 3:30 p.m. on Nov. 23.
