Kenny Chesney will take a brief break from his Brothers of the Sun Tour with pal Tim McGraw to celebrate the 4th of July with another music superstar. Chesney will join pop starlet Katy Perry for this year’s Macy’s 4th of July fireworks show, an annual televised tradition that celebrates the birth of our nation.

The Macy’s 4th of July celebration is the nation’s largest fireworks display, which in the past has ignited more than 40,000 fireworks shells over the Hudson River in New York City. This year’s 236th birthday party will return to the Big Apple bigger and better than ever — illuminating more than 45,000 fireworks during a 25-minute “ignite the night”-themed display.

“NBC is trilled to have Katy Perry and Kenny Chesney join us in celebrating America’s birthday,” says Doug Vaughan, Senior Vice President of NBC Entertainment’s Special Programs, in an official statement. “These stars’ powerful voice and stage presence will serve as the perfect complement to Macy’s visual artistry.”

Chesney will resume his all-arena summer outing on July 7 in Chicago, Ill. The ‘Come Over’ singer is currently touring to promote his first album under the newly-signed Blue Chair/Columbia label co-venture. ‘Welcome to the Fishbowl’ dropped Tuesday, June 19. The collection, which features the McGraw duet ‘Feel Like a Rock Star,’ is his most personal to-date, according to Chesney.

“‘Welcome to the Fishbowl’ is the most honest and authentic album I’ve ever recorded, and I’m thrilled to be able to release it on my own Blue Chair Records,” he says. “It’s the start of a great new chapter for me as an artist.”
