Lebanon’s Christmas parade Sunday will feature local country music star Daryle Singletary as its grand marshal.
Singletary said he was asked about the honor when he performed at the Jammin’ with the General concert series in June.
“They asked me to be a part of it, and I said I’d love to,” Singletary said. “We’ve had the privilege of watching it, but this will be the first time being a part of it.”
As far as the weather forecast is concerned, Singletary said he is “as prepared as everybody else” attending the parade. This is his first time as grand marshal of the Lebanon Christmas parade, but it is not his first rodeo as a grand marshal overall.
“I was the grand marshal in Mt. Juliet once. I have been one in Nashville and in Hendersonville,” he said.
There will be a first for Singletary if the weather holds up, he noted.
“I’m excited that if the weather holds out my family will be in it with me, as well,” Singletary said. “It will be the first time that they will have been in one with me.”
Anyone who attends Sunday’s festivities can look forward to Singletary “putting my best queen wave on.”
The parade starts at 2 p.m. at the old Lebanon High School. It will continue onto Main Street, through the square and end at the D.T. McCall and Son shopping center parking lot. Organizers said the parade will be rain or shine.
