Charlie Daniels Band Recording Set for Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks
The Charlie Daniels Band will help Macy’s celebrate the 4th of July with a newly recorded version of ‘My Home.’
The song will be played and set to pyrotechnics during the 38th annual fireworks display from the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City.
“It’s an honor to be a part of celebrating the birthday of the greatest nation on Earth and an honor to be chosen to record this patriotic song that is going to be choreographed with one of the most spectacular fireworks displays that our country will see this year,” Daniels says.
‘My Home’ was written by Emmy-winning team Doug Katsaros and William Schermerhorn.
“As the song was being written for the fireworks score, we knew it had to be performed by an iconic American band that can get this country up on its feet,” Schermerhorn says. “It was thrilling to have Charlie and his band take this song and make it their own. And nothing could add to our pyrotechnic celebration like the sound of Charlie Daniels’ fiddle!”
The fireworks display will feature over 40,000 pyrotechnic shells and effects, which will be fired from three barges on the lower East River, as well as from Brooklyn Bridge. Over 3 million people are expected to witness the event live, with millions more watching on television.
