Hunter Hayes, Meghan Linsey and Alabama to Perform at A Capitol Fourth in Washington, D.C.
The three artists are part of the lineup for A Capitol Fourth, which is held on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., and broadcast on PBS. The celebration has been on the air for 35 years.
In addition to Hayes, Linsey and Alabama, Barry Manilow will headline the event, opening and closing the concert. Other acts lined up to help celebrate the United States' 239th birthday include Nicole Scherzinger, KC and the Sunshine Band, Lang Lang and Ronan Tynan, and the National Symphony Orchestra will play under the direction of conductor Jack Everly. Plus, in celebration of Frank Sinatra's 100th birthday, Robert Davi will pay tribute to the crooner.
A Capitol Fourth also features a top-notch fireworks display.
In 2013, Scotty McCreery performed at the event, and other country superstars, including Reba McEntire, Darius Rucker, Dolly Parton, Faith Hill, Kenny Rogers and more, have lit up the national stage in years past.
This year, a couple other country artists will be celebrating Independence Day on stage as well: Dierks Bentley and Brad Paisley were recently announced as performers at the 2015 Macy's Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular in New York City. Plus, Willie Nelson is holding his annual Fourth of July Picnic in Austin, Texas, with artists like Eric Church, Merle Haggard, Kacey Musgraves, Sturgill Simpson and many more fan-favorite acts set to perform.
The 35th annual broadcast of A Capitol Fourth is scheduled to air live on July 4 at 8PM ET, on PBS, the American Forces Network and over NPR member stations nationwide.
