Mickey Guyton has been tapped as the host of this year’s A Capitol Fourth, the 42nd edition of America’s national Independence Day celebration on PBS.
Guyton will lead an all-star cast in a patriotic evening of musical performances by stars from all genres featuring the National Symphony Orchestra under the direction of premier pops conductor Jack Everly.
The national tradition, airing live from Washington, D.C., puts viewers front and center for America’s biggest birthday party, with a display of fireworks lighting up the D.C. skyline. Additional talent announcements will be coming soon.
“I am so excited to be hosting A Capitol Fourth this year live from Washington, D.C.,” shares Guyton. “It’s an honor to be leading our nation’s 246th birthday celebration, and to share music, fun and fireworks with my family and all of yours!”
“We are thrilled to welcome Mickey Guyton back after her show-stopping performance on the 2021 broadcast to host this year’s A Capitol Fourth,” adds Executive Producer Michael Colbert. “From spectacular fireworks to patriotic classics and performances by the biggest stars, the concert will offer something for everyone’s Independence Day party. We hope you’ll make the program part of your holiday plans.”
The special airs on PBS July 4 from 7-8:30 p.m. CT, as well as to our troops serving around the world on the American Forces Network. It will also be streaming on YouTube and pbs.org/a-capitol-fourth, and will be available as Video on Demand from July 4-18.
