ABC Radio and SiriusXM have released some of their plans for the Fourth of July.
ABC Radio is offering “Lady Antebellum’s July Fourth Celebration,” an hour-long program. It will feature the group along with other country music stars such as Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert and Keith Urban.
The network also has two other Fourth specials — “Car Crazy” and “Red, White & BBQ.”
“Car Crazy,” hosted by Aaron Katersky will be “an exploration into American’s long-lasting love for cars and the how the latest trends are shaping and changing the industry.” For the foodies in the audience, “Red, White & BBQ” features Scott Goldberg “offering helpful tips to boost your backyard celebration this year, including a look back on how these traditions have changed over time.”
The satcaster has penciled in The Grateful Dead for the whole Fourth of July weekend — July 3, 4 and 5 — for a group of concerts from Chicago’s Soldier Field. The concerts will be rebroadcast several times, including Labor Day weekend. SiriusXM also has a contest tied into concerts.
