Brown, 27, is a multi-racial country star who was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee to a European-American mother and an African-American father. Brown first received attention by posting cover versions of popular country songs online. In 2019, Brown won the American Music Award's honor for Favorite Country Male Artist.

Lions halftime show for Thanksgiving

The Lions have not announced a halftime performer for 2020. They've consistently had performers at halftime in recent years, including Mike Posner in 2018 and Brothers Osborne in 2019, so this could be due to a new emergency order in Michigan.

On Nov. 15, Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer announced an extensive emergency order to combat the fast rising cases of COVID-19 in the state. Among other things, the order prevents the Lions from having fans at Ford Field on Thanksgiving. The order says, ""Professional and college sports meeting extraordinary standards for risk mitigation may continue without spectators."

It's likely that a halftime show wouldn't meet "extraordinary standards for risk mitigation" with Robert Gordon, the director of the Michigan Department of Health & Human Services, adding that "no attendance means no attendance," according to the Detroit Free Press.
