Big Changes For The Bash On Broadway

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - When revelers come out for the Bash on Broadway this New Year's they won't find the guitar drop they have seen in the past. This year 2012 will begin on a fresh note.

Some 25,000 people came out last year to ring in the 2011. This year the number is expected to rise to over 30,000, and at the stroke of midnight on the 31st it won't be a guitar that signals the New Year.

"The star of the night is the midnight music drop. This year it'll be a 15 foot red music note," said Nashville Convention and Visitors Bureau President Butch Spyridon.

Gone is the 10 foot guitar of years past, replaced by the much larger music drop. For a couple of weeks now, the folks at 'Made First' have been working to make Music City's New Year's Eve celebration better than ever before.

"I think it's more representative of Nashville, of Music City and its unique; there isn't another one out there worldwide," said Butch Spyridon, President of the Nashville Convention and Visitors Bureau

The massive musical note will cap off a four and a half hour concert featuring The Farm, Eden's Edge, Jeffrey Steele and legendary rockers Lynyrd Skynyrd.

"It's got over 150 feet of LED lights," said Spyridon, describing the note.

Enough lights to eventually catch the attention of a national television audience.

The note will create a one of a kind start to the New Year. In what could be a record breaking Bash on Broadway.

This year's Bash on Broadway came very close to being a part of Dick Clark's New Year's Eve show. A logistical problem kept our celebration off of national TV this year - but with the anticipated success of the bash, officials hope it will be televised in 2012.
