-- How Will You Use This Story? --


(Suggested Anchor Intro):
America's national "Independence Day"-celebration--"A Capitol Fourth"--returns for its 38th-annual broadcast, on P-B-S--live from the West Lawn of the U-S Capitol.  John Stamos will again host this year's concert.  And, Jimmy Buffett will perform with the Broadway-cast of the new musical "Escape to Margaritaville"--making their first stop after Broadway, at the U-S Capitol, before launching a national tour...

(BUFFETT):
"
I'VE BEEN TO WASHINGTON, D-C, MANY TIMES--BUT NEVER ON THE 4TH OF JULY.  SO, YEAH, I'M VERY MUCH LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.  I LOVE THINGS THAT I'VE NEVER DONE BEFORE--AND THIS CERTAINLY IS ONE OF THEM.  I'VE ALWAYS BEEN SOMEWHERE FUN FOR THE 4TH OF JULY.  AND, THIS WILL PROBABLY BE COOL DUE TO THE FACT THAT IT'S THE LAST TIME THAT THE CAST WILL BE TOGETHER, TO SING, BEFORE WE START WORK ON THE ROADSHOW--'ESCAPE TO MARGARITAVILLE'--AFTER BROADWAY.  WHAT A UNIQUE ENVIRONMENT TO PLAY IN."

(Suggested Anchor Tag):
This year, along with performing, the "Beach Boys" will be honored with "A Capitol Fourth's" fifth-ever "National Artistic-Achievement Award".  And, during the concert, Renée Fleming will present a tribute to America's troops--and their families.  The lineup also includes: "Pentatonix"; Andy Grammer; the "Temptations"; Luke Combs; Chita Rivera; Lauren Alaina; CeCe Winans; Joshua Bell; and Kyla Jade--with Jack Everly, conducting the "National Symphony Orchestra".  "A Capitol Fourth" will air live, on P-B-S, Wednesday, July 4th, at eight p-m, Eastern; check local listings, for the time in your area.  To learn more, visit "p-b-s"-dot-org-slash-"capitol-fourth".
