Tim McGraw and Mariah Carey to Perform on the 4th of July

May 30, 2013

NBC recently announced it’s lineup for its annual Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular and it includes performances by Mariah Carey and Tim McGraw. The event will be hosted by Mariah’s hubby, Nick Cannon.

Executive Producer of the special, Amy Kule, promises viewers a “Party over the Hudson River” as these fireworks are expected to be the best ones yet. The 37th annual show used over 40,000 pyrotechnics and this year hopes to eclipse all past expectations.

This year’s show will also feature a first-ever, one-of-a-kind collaboration with Usher. Lending his artistic inspiration and talent, Usher is curating the overall design of the show, titled “It Begins with A Spark.” From the music choices to the spectacular Fireworks in the sky, Usher is putting his stamp of approval on the nation’s biggest Independence Day party.

“This year Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks will be transformed into a giant party in the sky captivating audiences along the Hudson River and on television screens across the country. Since 1976, Macy’s Fireworks have grown in scale and artistry. With this collaboration with Usher, we are taking the show to the next level of entertainment spectacle, combining the very best of Macy’s Fireworks with Usher’s unparalleled artistic vision,” Kule said.

The fireworks air on NBC on July 4th at 8:00 ET (check your local listings closer to event time). Make sure to tune in to what we hope are the most impressive fireworks yet.
