Ring in the New Year in Nashville With Free Show Featuring Keith Urban, Brett Young, Peter Frampton & More

Even More Music News - Fri, 12/07/2018 - 11:23

You can ring in the New Year in Nashville with a free show featuring Keith Urban, Brett Young, Peter Frampton, Judah & the Lion, Caitlyn Smith, Devon Gilfillian and Fisk Jubilee Singers

The free event—dubbed the Jack Daniel’s Music City Midnight: New Year’s Eve in Nashville—will take place at the Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park (approximately one mile from the heart of downtown). This will be the fourth year that Keith headlines the event.

Gates will open at 4 p.m. CT on Dec. 31, followed by the raising of the Music Note (Nashville’s equivalent to NYC’s ball drop) to kick off the live music. The event will include the traditional Music Note Drop and accompanying fireworks display to ring in the New Year against the backdrop of the iconic State Capitol building and unique view of the Nashville skyline.

The Nashville show will be featured on NBC’s New Year’s Eve national broadcast from Times Square in New York, with hosts Carson Daly, Chrissy Teigen and Leslie Jones.
