Carrie Underwood, Florida Georgia Line + More to Perform at 2013 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
The 87th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is shaping up to be quite the festive event. And it’s only fitting that one of the nation’s most beloved spectacles would feature some of country music’s most beloved performers, including Carrie Underwood and Florida Georgia Line in 2013!
On Thursday, Nov. 28, the 2013 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will host performances from country stars Underwood, FGL, Brett Eldredge, Kellie Pickler and Kristin Chenoweth, in addition to the Robertstons from ‘Duck Dynasty,’ Gavin DeGraw, Fall Out Boy, Cher Lloyd, Richard Simmons and more. NBC’s Matt Lauer, Al Roker and Savannah Guthrie of ‘Today’ will host this spectacular celebration, which will bring in more than 3.5 million spectators and 50 million viewers nationwide.
Underwood’s part in the parade will be super special; the first hour of the national broadcast will feature the songstress and the cast of NBC’s ‘The Sound of Music Live!‘ and is just one week before the musical’s highly-anticipated live broadcast on Dec. 5. Plus, FGL will have a chance to commemorate their rise to success by performing at the parade — and there’s nothing more unforgettable than a parade with 8,000 participants, a full lineup of giant balloons, floats of fantasy, superstars and Santa Claus.
The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is the event to watch, whether you’re viewing it from the bustling Manhattan streets or the comfort of your living room. It will kick off at 9AM ET on NBC on Thanksgiving Day 2013.
