Nashville's NYE Bash To Be Biggest Ever'

Posted at 12:45 PM, Dec 08, 2015

This year’s New Year’s Eve bash in downtown Nashville will be the largest event in its seven year history, organizers have predicted.  

Officials with the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp said this year’s celebration would feature seven bands, two stages and the city’s longest fireworks show. 

Once again, the city will drop a Music Note at the stroke of midnight – officially ushering in 2016.

Earlier this year, the band Kings of Leon was selected to headline a free downtown concert.

CMA winner Chris Stapleton has also been scheduled to take the stage, along with CMA-nominated Kelsea Ballerini, Sugar & The Hi-Lows, The Whigs, Wild Cub and LANco.

“This stellar lineup showcases the diversity of music being created in Nashville and will be one of the very best concerts taking place in the country on New Year’s Eve,” said Ken Levitan, chairman of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp and president of Vector Management.

Event planners said they’re expecting some 150,000 to attend the concert.
