Roberts to Ride Tom Turkey in Macy’s Parade

Julie Roberts will ride on the first float in Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday (Nov. 25) in New York City. The Tom Turkey float will promote the 2005 CMA Awards to be held in New York. Roberts will perform music from her debut album. CMA executive director Ed Benson said, “One of the goals of hosting the CMA Awards in New York City in 2005 was raising the profile of country music in this important market, and participating in the Macy’s Parade is a first step in that direction.”
