Live from New York...It's Brad Paisley!  NBC is kicking off the big Independence Day celebration this year with a great line-up of talent. 

In addition to Brad, Beyonce is also scheduled to perform.  And the whole shindig is being hosted by Nick Lachey from the network's "The Sing-off".  The show is scheduled to be broadcast on Monday, July 4, from 7 to 8 PM Mountain Time.

The three-time Grammy Award winner has recently released his ninth studio album and is on a roll with "This is Country Music" and the collaboration with Alabama, called "Old Alabama".  Brad has sold more than 12 million albums and is the current Country Music Association Entertainer of the year.

The Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks is the largest in the country and is spectacularly reflected off the Hudosn River each year. 

It should be a wonderful show and Brad is a great representative of the celebration and country music.  Can't wait to see it.
