A Capitol Fourth

About

This July 4th, A Capitol Fourth welcomes country music star and four-time Grammy-nominee Mickey Guyton as host of the 42nd edition of America’s national Independence Day celebration. Guyton will lead an all-star cast in a patriotic evening of unrivaled musical performances by top pop, country, R&B, classical and Broadway stars and the National Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Jack Everly.

In 2021, Mickey Guyton made history as the first African American female solo artist to earn a Grammy nomination in a country category. Later that year, she released her critically-acclaimed debut album, Remember Her Name. She’s performed during music’s most important events, from the Grammy Awards to the Rock ’n Roll Hall of Fame and the CMT Awards, as well as hosted the 56th Academy of Country Music Awards alongside Keith Urban. This year, Guyton performed the National Anthem at Super Bowl LV in front of an audience of 112.3 million. This national tradition, returning live from Washington, D.C., puts viewers front and center for America’s biggest birthday party with the greatest display of fireworks anywhere in the U.S.A. lighting up the iconic D.C. skyline.
