CBS commentator and former Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo really seemed to enjoy Parton’s performance. Romo enjoyed it so much that Jim Nantz had to steer the conversation back to the game.
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. Following Parton’s performance surely wasn’t easy.
