Cowboys owner Jerry Jones praised Parton’s donation. This marks the 27th year the Cowboys have partnered with the Salvation Army. More than $3 billion was raised during that period.

Thursday night’s performance capped a busy week for Parton, who released a new album on Nov. 17. Her performance was perhaps even more memorable than the actual game, which the Cowboys dominated in the second half behind another big play from quarterback Dak Prescott and receiver C.D. Lamb.
