This July 4th, A Capitol Fourth welcomes country music star and four-time Grammy-nominee Mickey Guyton as host. 

In 2021, 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. A Capitol Fourth airs Monday, July 4, 2022 at 8 p.m. and again at 9:32 p.m. on WXXI-TV.

A Capitol Fourth, a time-honored 42 year-tradition, puts viewers front and center for America’s biggest birthday party with the greatest display of fireworks anywhere in the nation lighting up the iconic D.C. skyline. Celebrate our country’s 246th birthday with musical performances by top stars from pop, country, R&B, classical and Broadway featuring the National Symphony Orchestra under the direction of premier pops conductor Jack Everly.
