Luke Bryan better not kick the dust up at his newly announced performance or he might just ruin the turf. The country star will be the halftime performer for the Cowboys vs. Panthers football game on Thanksgiving Day.

The game, which is now a 19-year tradition for the Cowboys, aims to raise money for social services like shelter and food. Bryan's halftime show will help launch the annual Red Kettle campaign held by the Salvation Army. Bryan is no novice when it comes to philanthropy. The singer also supports charities that raise money for AIDS and cancer research, children and disaster relief.

The game will air Nov. 26 on CBS. Bryan will continue his Kick the Dust Up tour in January.
