Get ready for the ultimate July 4th celebration with the Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular, which airs Monday, July 4 at 9/8c. 

As previously announced, pop powerhouses Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas will perform during the orchestra's free annual concert and now fans can look forward to hearing a little bit of country during the two-hour special when ACM Award-winning supergroup Little Big Town takes the stage at Boston's Charles River Esplanade. 

Affectionately known as "America's Orchestra," the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra will perform under the direction of conductor Keith Lockhart, who, for 20 years, has guided the orchestra's sound and shaped the programming, making the Boston Pops one of the most beloved orchestral groups.

This year has been filled with huge success for Little Big Town, which consists of Karen Fairchild, Phillip Sweet, Kimberly Schlapman, and Jimi Westbrook. In April, the band won an ACM Award for Vocal Group of the Year and, on June 10, the quartet released their seventh studio album, Wanderlust.

As for Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas, the talented musicians and long-time best friends, are currently touring the country together as part of the 2016 Honda Civic: Future Now Tour, which runs through the end of August.

To see all three of these talented artists come together for an explosive musical celebration, watch the two-hour Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular live on Monday, July 4 at 9/8c, though delayed in PST, on CBS.
