CMAThis Independence Day, Dierks Bentley marks an item off his bucket list, as he’s set to perform on Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular.

“I’ve watched it many times and seen all the acts on there,” he recalls. “You know, I’ve had a chance to perform at the Capitol building, which is amazing, in front of the steps of the Capitol for the 4th of July, but I’ve never had a chance to do it in New York City.
