NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Thousands packed downtown Nashville Monday night for Music City's countdown to 2013. 

Despite the wet and cold weather, city officials estimated over 50,000 people came to the 4th annual Bash on Broadway to watch the music note drop on Broadway and take part in the free festivities. 

Officials with the Nashville Convention and Visitors Bureau said this year's event was the biggest and best yet.

The festivities got underway at 7 p.m. New this year, the event featured a family hour from 7 to 8 p.m., where families enjoyed music and watched the raising of the music note.

The Fray, Sixpence None the Richer, Love and Theft, Striking Matches and Lennon and Maisy Stella of the hit show "Nashville" all performed throughout the night.

The highlight was at midnight, when the 15-foot tall music note dropped, more than 20 pounds of confetti rained down on the crowd, and the sky was lit up with a big fireworks show.
