Dolly Parton might be 77 years old, but she can still captivate millions. Parton put on a dazzling halftime performance as the Dallas Cowboys took on the Washington Commanders on Thanksgiving.

Parton took the stage at AT&T Stadium in Arlington wearing a modified version of a Cowboys cheerleader outfit and immediately launched into “Jolene.”
She also sang “9 to 5” and did a rendition of Queen’s “We Are the Champions,” a possible tribute to the Texas Rangers, who won the World Series in November.
The NFL tabbed three different artists to perform at halftime during all three Thanksgiving games in 2023. Jack Harlow performed at halftime as the Green Bay Packers took on the Detroit Lions. His performance wasn’t received nearly as well as Parton’s.
DJ Steve Aoki played during halftime of the Seattle Seahawks-San Francisco 49ers game on Thursday.
