-- How Will You Use This Story? --


(Suggested Anchor Intro):
"A Capitol Fourth"--America's longest-running national T-V event on Independence Day--returns for its 39th-annual broadcast, on P-B-S--live from the West Lawn of the U-S Capitol-building.  The celebration will again be hosted by John Stamos--and among those performing this year is Lee Brice...

(BRICE):
"
WE ARE SO HONORED TO BE THERE, AT ALL.  WE KNOW HOW BIG THE CELEBRATION IS; WE KNOW HOW AWESOME IT'S GOING TO BE.  LOOKING AT ALL OF THE OTHER NAMES THAT ARE GOING TO BE THERE, IT'S AWESOME TO BE ON THE SAME STAGE AS SOME OF THESE LEGENDS.  SO, WE GET TO REPRESENT COUNTRY-MUSIC--AND THEN ALL THE PEOPLE THAT PROTECT AND SERVE US.  IT'S A DAY TO REALLY THANK THEM--AND THAT'S A REALLY IMPORTANT PART, TO ME.  THAT'S WHAT MAKES ME SO HUMBLED TO BE A PART OF THAT.  AND, 'AMERICAN NIGHTS' IS A SPECIAL SONG--AND IT IS JUST FOR THE CELEBRATIONS ON THE FOURTH.  AND SO, WE ARE JUST AS EXCITED AS WE POSSIBLY CAN BE."

(Suggested Anchor Tag):
This year's concert features Carole King, with the Broadway-cast of "Beautiful", starring Vanessa Carlton--as well as a 50th-anniversary tribute to "Sesame Street".  The lineup also includes: "Gone West", featuring Colbie ["cole-bee"] Caillat ["cal-lay"]; Lindsey Stirling; Keala ["kay-ah-lah"] Settle; Vanessa Williams; Yolanda Adams; Laine Hardy; Angelica Hale; Laura Osnes ["auss-ness"]; "The O'Jays"; and Maelyn ["may-lynn"] Jarmon ["jar-mon"]--with the "National Symphony Orchestra".  "A Capitol Fourth" airs live, on P-B-S, Thursday, 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".  "A Capitol Fourth" remains unaffiliated with any other events on July 4th.
