Brad Paisley, Lady Antebellum and Craig Campbell will all help celebrate the Fourth of July in New York City this year. The three country acts, as well as a number of other stars, will take part in the 2017 Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular event.

During the two-hour Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular broadcast on July 4, 2017, Paisley and Lady A, along with Hailee Steinfeld and more, will perform to help celebrate the Fourth of July. Akbar Gbajabiamila, Matt Iseman and Kristine Leahy from American Ninja Warrior will host the event, which will air on NBC from 8PM until 10PM ET. The fireworks themselves will be accompanied by “Anthem,” a musical tribute performed by the West Point Band and Glee Club and featuring Campbell, Heather Headley, Jamie Barton and the USO Troupe of Metropolitan New York.

“Our lineup of amazing musical acts and personalities will be the perfect lead-in to the incredible fireworks display the nation waits for all year,” says Doug Vaughan, executive vice president of specials and late-night programming for NBC Entertainment, says in a press release. “NBC is proud to partner with Macy’s and these talented artists to create the ultimate destination to celebrate Independence Day.”

Macy’s Fourth of July fireworks event is celebrating its 41st year in 2017. The fireworks display will include more than 60,000 fireworks launched from five barges, over New York City’s East River; it will be the United States’ largest fireworks display in more than a decade, per the press release.

Paisley, Lady Antebellum and Campbell aren’t the only country artists with big plans for the Fourth of July in 2017: Trace Adkins and Kellie Pickler will take part in PBS’ A Capitol Fourth event, which will air live on the Fourth of July from Washington, DC.
