The 10th annual Jack Daniel’s Music City Midnight: New Year’s Eve in Nashville will be featured on NBC’s New Year’s Eve National Broadcast. Reigning CMA Entertainer of The Year Keith Urban will be headlining and hosting the Nashville celebration for the third consecutive year.
The NBC 90-minute live show, airing from Times Square in New York City, will include cut-ins from Nashville that will feature Urban performing hosting duties and singing live from Nashville.
“It’s an honor to join the national NBC broadcast of New Year’s Eve,” Nashville Mayor David Briley said. “The celebration here in Nashville gets bigger and better every year, and this year is no different. As always, our city’s festivities will feature top-notch entertainment, a great crowd and a wonderful host. The rest of the country will now see that Nashville is the place to be to ring in the New Year.”
Ronnie Smith, Head of Corporate Bank, Regions Bank, who serves as chair of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp board of directors, said: “It’s always been our goal for Nashville’s New Year’s Eve to be a part of primetime network TV to showcase the diversity of our music and the city. It’s fitting that the tenth anniversary of this spectacular event coincides with a new partnership with NBC.”
ACM New Male Vocalist of the Year Brett Young has also been slated to perform at the Music City Midnight along with Peter Frampton, Judah & the Lion, Caitlyn Smith, Devon Gilfillian and the Fisk Jubilee Singers.
Music City Midnight is located at Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park and the gates will open at 4 p.m. on Dec. 31. The event is free and open to the public.
