NASHVILLE — A city that loves a good party, Nashville will once again throw one of the biggest New Year’s Eve celebrations in the country with great live music and Nashville’s own midnight “Music Note Drop®.”
Grammy®-nominated piano rock group The Fray will headline the fourth annual Music City New Year’s Eve “Bash on Broadway” event in downtown Nashville, the Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau has announced. The music-filled evening will also feature performances by Nashville-based Sixpence None the Richer, ACM-nominated country duo Love and Theft, and Nashville newcomers Striking Matches.
Revelers attending Music City’s “Bash on Broadway” will count down to the New Year as a 15-foot-tall red “Music Note Drop®,” drops slowly from a 115-foot structure. The “Music Note Drop®” will trigger a fireworks display and major confetti cannons as it reaches the midnight mark. New this year, families will have an opportunity to mark the holiday with a raising of the music note, fireworks and discounted non-alcoholic beverages during a family hour from 7 to 8 p.m.
The show, which is free to the public, will take place on Lower Broadway between First and Fifth avenues beginning at 7 tonight. The show will be emceed by Storme Warren, host of GAC’s Headline Country and Sirius XM Radio personality.
