Macy’s 4th of July Show Turns Country as Headliners Are Announced

“Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular” has signed Country music’s biggest stars. The two-hour special is set to be co-hosted by NBC’s “World of Dance” star Derek Hough and singer Ciara. The co-hosts are also planning performances of their own, featuring a dance number and “musical medley.” 

“My Church” singer Maren Morris is one of three country singers slated to perform at the 43rd annual fireworks display, airing July 4 on NBC. 

Morris will be joined by Luke Bryan and Brad Paisley. “Location” singer Khalid, will bring his Free Spirit World Tour to MSG two nights this summer, and that rounds out the 2019 fireworks performer lineup. 

The live performances will take place before the fireworks at around 9:20 p.m.

This year’s display has been moved to the Brooklyn Bridge, where more than 70,000 shells and effects will be launched. 

Four barges along Pier 17 in the Seaport District will also serve as launch sites of the nation’s largest Fourth of July display. This year, keep a lookout for several new effects including crackling rain shells, patriotic chasing crossettes, howling wolves, screaming dragons, silver twisters, diamond screamers and a dramatic 1,600-foot waterfall. 

A recorded score which will be set to sync with the fireworks display will follow the live performances. The playlist was designed to celebrate American culture through film. Jennifer Hudson will star as a guest vocalist, lending her voice to a recorded rendition of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” to celebrate the 80-year anniversary of an American classic, “The Wizard of Oz.”

Tune into 1010 WINS to hear this live.
