For a country music star is there any better place to ring in the new year than Nashville?
This New Year’s Eve, country superstar Keith Urban will celebrate the turn of the calendar with a performance in the country capital of the world. The performance will serve as the headlining set of the city’s annual New Year’s Eve festivities.
“I actually love playing on New Year’s Eve, I’ve done it most of my life. So when they invited me to ring in 2017 here in my hometown, it was an immediate yes” Urban said in a press release. “I’ve lived here now for 24 years, so I know how Nashvillians know how to throw a party and every year this one just gets bigger and bigger, so we’ll be bringin’ it.”
The annual New Year’s Eve celebration will be free for fans. It will take place at Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park in Nashville.
Other performers set to appear include Styx, Charlie Worsham, A Thousand Horses, Moon Taxi and the Fisk Jubilee Singers.
