If kissing the new year in to live country music sounds good — and you have a partner that’s willing and able — country fans have several options for New Year’s Eve concerts. Nashville, New York City and Texas are just a few of the top destinations that will kick off 2017 with some live pickin’ and grinnin’.
In Nashville, Keith Urban will headline the Jack Daniel’s Music City Midnight: New Year’s Eve at its new location at downtown’s Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park. Previously held on Lower Broadway, the free all-genre event will feature performances by A Thousand Horses, Charlie Worsham, Styx, Moon Taxi and the Fisk Jubilee Singers. A 15-foot-tall red Music Note Drop will descend from a 145-foot structure, culminating in a fireworks display and explosions of confetti at midnight.
For those who couldn’t score tickets to the sold-out Old Crow Medicine ShowNew Year’s Eve concert at the Ryman Auditorium, the band will perform an abbreviated set as part of an Opry at the Ryman show starting at 7 p.m. with Dom Flemons, Dan Layus and others.
