How to Watch CNN’s ‘The Fourth in America’ Special with Don McLean, Barry Manilow and More


Worried about how to spend the 4th of July in the middle of a pandemic? CNN’s got you covered. On Saturday (July 4), the network is set to air its very own patriotic special, The Fourth in America.

The primetime event will feature performances from a host of artists, including Don McLean, Barry Manilow, Martina McBride, Kenny Loggins, Jewel and more. And it’s not just solo acts doing the entertaining — also slated to take the stage are the Broadway casts of Girl From the North Country and Ain’t Too Proud, as well as the famed Harlem Gospel Choir.

The Fourth in America will showcase fireworks displays in cities across the country, from New York and Washington D.C. to Houston, Nashville and Jacksonville, Fla., all while being accompanied by orchestral performances from various military bands, symphonies and youth orchestras.

Hosted by CNN’s own Don Lemon and Dana Bash, the special will stream live at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT for subscribers on the homepage of CNN.com and CNN apps for iOS and Android. It will also be available on the network’s online streaming platform, CNNgo.
