Brett Eldredge, Kelsea Ballerini and More to Perform at 2016 Thanksgiving Day Parade
The 2016 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade will feature four stellar country music acts: Brett Eldredge, Kelsea Ballerini, Easton Corbin and Maddie & Tae will all be performing at the big event in New York City on Thanksgiving (Nov. 24).
Eldredge, Ballerini, Corbin and Maddie & Tae are part of a star-studded lineup of artists set for the annual parade, including Aloe Blacc, Tony Bennett, Johnnyswim and, as always, the Muppets! Fans can visit the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade's official website to see a list of all of the performers, marching bands and amazing floats that will be part of the 2016 event.
The 2016 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade will be extra special, as it's the epic event's 90th year.
"Since our historic first march in 1924, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade has been a call to celebration. Over the years, generations have gathered to enjoy the spectacle of high-flying balloons, fantasy floats, incredible performers and the one-and-only Santa Claus, as the annual march became synonymous with the start of the holiday season," says executive producer Amy Kule (quote via Sounds Like Nashville). "This year, as we celebrate 90 years of magical moments, we are truly humbled by the unique role the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade fills in the lives of millions worldwide, and we are thrilled to celebrate this special milestone with a spectacular lineup filled with amazing new and commemorative elements that will continue our storied legacy of unparalleled holiday entertainment.”
Eldredge will be performing at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade for the second time in 2016; his inclusion this year is particularly fitting, since he recently released a new Christmas album, Glow. It will be the first time in the parade for Maddie & Tae, Ballerini and Corbin, the latter of whom will be on Kentucky Fried Chicken's "The Colonel's Roadtrip to NYC" float.
The 2016 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade will air live on NBC beginning at 9AM ET.
