Nashville’s Big Bash New Year’s Eve event lived up to its name over the weekend, with approximately 200,000 people attending the star-studded, five-hour show downtown.
This year’s event was a primetime New Year’s Eve concert special on CBS, which featured heavy hitters Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, Brooks & Dunn, Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley and more.
The Bash was anchored at Nashville’s annual free concert and music note drop at Bicentennial Mall, but also moved around to some of Music City’s famed honky-tonks and a rooftop stage setting for the night’s many performances.
Co-host Bobby Bones dubbed the show a “once-in-a-lifetime New Year’s Eve bar crawl,” which featured some of Nashville’s biggest names taking the stage at their own bars, including Lambert from her Casa Rosa Cantina; Bryan from 32 Bridge; and Shelton from Ole Red.
All attendees age 11 and up were required to either submit a negative COVID test or could volunteer proof of vaccination to gain entry. The production, backstage crew and artists underwent stringent testing protocols in the days leading up to the event.
