Setlist History: Top 5 Dallas Cowboys Thanksgiving Halftime Shows

Thanksgiving is, of course, a time for family and giving. But for many, it's also a huge day for football. Watching the game has become just as much of a family tradition as carving the turkey and taking that sweet, post-dinner nap.
The Thanksgiving games usually serve up pretty tasty matchups, and the tradition continues this year, with the Detroit Lions hosting the Chicago Bears at 12:30 p.m. ET before the Dallas Cowboys welcome the Buffalo Bills at 4:30 ET (the New Orleans Saints head to Atlanta to take on the Falcons at 8:20 p.m. ET, but let's be real, we'll all be in our food comas by then).
Every year, the Cowboys partner up with the Salvation Army's Red Kettle Campaign – which helps provide shelter and meals to the homeless and the hungry – to sponsor a halftime show performance.
This year, Ellie Goulding will be taking center stage in Dallas. She's the latest addition to the Cowboys' long list of celebrity halftime performers, which over the years has included Carrie Underwood, Kenny Chesney, Enrique Iglesias, Jessica Simpson, Sheryl Crow, Destiny's Child, the Jonas Brothers, Selena Gomez and more.
With Dallas' Thanksgiving game tradition dating back to 1966, let's take a look back at some of the halftime performances over the years!

Sheryl Crow – 2005

Sheryl Crow stole the show with her halftime performance at the Cowboys' old stadium in Irving in 2005, as the team took on the Denver Broncos. She played a "Good Is Good" off her new album Wildflowers, and "If It Makes You Happy" from her eponymous sophomore album.
