Thomas Rhett is definitely ready for some football, especially as he takes the field for a special halftime show performance at the iconic Dallas Cowboys game on Thanksgiving Day.

The country singer has a lot to be thankful for this year, and he wanted to celebrate all of his little victories among some of the loudest fans in the country. Rhett teased his joining of the football tradition with a quick social media video discussing all the best parts of the autumn season, including a sarcastic comment about just who will play at the Cowboys Stadium this holiday.

“Man, I love fall. I mean, I love everything about it—the leaves, the temperature change, pumpkin everything. Most of all, I love Thanksgiving. I love being with my family, my friends, all the food. I love watching the Dallas Cowboys halftime performance. You know, I wonder who it will be this year? It’s always somebody awesome. I guess we’ll find out Thanksgiving day,” Rhett voiced over the simple zoom-out clip.

With the halftime performance also comes the responsibility of Rhett kicking off the annual Red Kettle Campaign by the Salvation Army, in which red kettles are placed in a number of locations around towns in America for people to donate their loose change and more to support a good cause during the holiday season. Rhett even got behind the #FightForGood initiative put out by the Salvation Army by fundraising for the hungry and homeless.

Rhett isn’t the only one getting into the Thanksgiving spirit for country music this year. Stars like Lauren Alaina, Dustin Lynch, Cam and Sara Evans will all parade around New York City during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Lineup famous for its massive balloons and holiday performances.

Fans can tune in to Rhett’s performance and the Dallas Cowboys taking on the Los Angeles Chargers at AT&T Stadium on Thanksgiving Day at 4:30 p.m. EST on CBS.
