Little Big Town and Kenny Rogers are part of an all-star event this Saturday (Sept. 13) honoring the 200th anniversary of the ‘Star-Spangled Banner.’

The show, ‘Star-Spangled Spectacular: Bicentennial of Our National Anthem,’ will also include performances by Kristin Chenoweth, Melissa Etheridge, Stomp, Train, opera star Denyce Graves-Montgomery, Pentatonix, Smokey Robinson and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. Jordin Sparks and actor John Lithgow will serve as the evening’s hosts.

The two-hour live concert event will pay homage to Francis Scott Key, who wrote the words to the patriotic tune after watching the bombing of Baltimore’s Fort McHenry by the British during the War of 1812.

The musical event will be held at Pier Six Pavilion on the Baltimore Harbor. Tickets are available here. The show will air live beginning at 8 PM ET on PBS. Check local listings here.
