Keith Urban will headline Jack Daniel’s Music City Midnight: New Year’s Eve in Nashville for a third year in a row, the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp announced today. The tenth annual event will take place at the Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park and is free and open to the public.

Additional artists in the lineup includes Peter Frampton, genre-bending rock/pop band Judah & the Lion, critically acclaimed pop rock singer/songwriter Caitlyn Smith, contemporary soul and rock artist Devon Gilfillian and the Fisk Jubilee Singers. Sirius XM host Storme Warren and Today In Nashville personality Kelly Sutton will serve as emcees. The event will include the traditional Music Note Drop and accompanying fireworks display to ring in the New Year.

“Keith is the perfect artist to headline this signature Nashville event, and we’re excited to have him back for a third year,” said Ronnie Smith, Head of Corporate Bank, Regions Bank, and chairman of the NCVC board of directors. “Keith’s an incredible performer and an even better partner. He’s a global entertainer who takes Nashville to the world and invites his fans to experience Music City for themselves. His great music includes many different influences and will cap off a lineup of outstanding performers representing many different genres.”

Gates will open at 4 p.m. on Dec. 31.
