Headliners at the 2023 Jack Daniel’s New Year’s Eve Live: Nashville’s Big Bash

This year’s Jack Daniel’s New Year’s Eve Live: Nashville’s Big Bash headliners are characteristically high caliber. There’s Thomas Rhett, for one thing, who’s landed no fewer than eight ACM Awards and a brace of CMA Awards, plus five GRAMMY nominations. Rhett’s most recent album is Where We Started, released last year.

Then there’s Lainey Wilson, who racked up a stellar haul at the 2023 ACM Awards—including Female Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year—and who meanwhile garnered nine nominations at this year’s CMA Awards.

Elle King will also be hitting the Nashville’s Big Bash main stage that evening, touring behind her 2023 release Come Get Your Wife. That album notably features “Worth A Shot,” her smash hit duet with Dierks Bentley.

The legendary band Lynyrd Skynyrd will also be making an appearance at Nashville’s Big Bash, celebrating not only New Year’s Eve (of course) but also the 50th anniversary of its debut album (the helpfully named but rather hard-to-spell Pronounced ‘Lĕh-‘nérd ‘Skin-‘nérd).

Music City Hip-Hop 50 at Nashville’s Big Bash

The soon-to-bow-out 2023 may be the 50th anniversary of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s first record: It’s also the “official” half-century mark of an entire musical genre.

And Jack Daniel’s New Year’s Eve: Nashville’s Big Bash will be observing that milestone this year with Music City Hip-Hop 50, taking place during the New Year’s Eve program in the 5:15 to 5:55 PM slot. Fashioned by Eric Holt and Jason Eskridge and emceed by Kenny Smoov, this 50-minute show will feature a variety of performers celebrating the 50th anniversary of hip-hop.

The Countdown to Midnight at the Jack Daniel’s New Year’s Eve Live: Nashville’s Big Bash

It’s no exaggeration to say that Nashville, Tennessee gives the Big Apple’s Times Square a run for its money in terms of an iconic New Year’s Eve midnight countdown.

Jack Daniel’s New Year’s Eve: Nashville’s Big Bash features the Music Note Drop, a 16-foot-tall, 400-pound, blazingly lit-up aluminum and acrylic Music Note that makes its descent down the 138-foot-tall Music Note Tower as the official yearly turnover approaches. Right on the heels of the Music Note Drop, as the clock strikes midnight, Big Bash festivalgoers enjoy a full 90-second-long fireworks display and a cheery blast of confetti.

Other New Year’s Events & Entertainment in Nashville

Rest assured there are plenty of other New Year’s Eve celebrations and soirees to be found throughout Nashville besides the high-profile Big Bash, taking place from honky-tonks and nightclubs to theaters and concert halls.

Over at the legendary Ryman Auditorium, for example, the lauded string band Old Crow Medicine Show (which calls Music City home, by the way) will be doing sort of a mini New Year’s Eve residency, playing both December 30th and December 31st.

They’ll have some special guests for the occasion, too: Old Crow Medicine Show will be joined on the 30th by Kasey Tyndall and on New Year’s Eve by Harper O’Neill, and on both nights by Willie Watson.

Speaking of legendary venues, the Grand Ole Opry is another option for New Year’s weekend, if not New Year’s Eve itself. The Opry will be going down Saturday, December 30th, with performers including Mae Estes, Gary Mule Deer, and The Shootouts, among others.
