Ring in the New Year in Nashville With Free Show Featuring Keith Urban, Jason Isbell, Amanda Shires, The Struts & More

You can ring in the New Year in Nashville with a free show featuring Keith Urban, Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit, The Struts, Amanda Shires and the Fisk Jubilee Singers.

The free event—dubbed the Jack Daniel’s Music City Midnight: New Year’s Eve in Nashville—will take place at the Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park (approximately one mile from the heart of downtown). This will be the fourth year in a row that Keith headlines the event.

Gates will open at 4 p.m. CT on Dec. 31, followed by the raising of the Music Note (Nashville’s equivalent to NYC’s ball drop) to kick off the live music. The event will include the traditional Music Note Drop and accompanying fireworks display to ring in the New Year against the backdrop of the iconic State Capitol building and unique view of the Nashville skyline.

Last year’s show was featured on NBC’s New Year’s Eve national broadcast from Times Square in New York.

‘Ad Astra’ launches Brad Pitt into cerebral sci-fi realm

Add “Ad Astra” to the shrinking ranks of cerebral science fiction, a movie that explores the great mysteries against an epic interstellar backdrop. Yet the movie works as well as it does thanks largely to its human component — specifically, Brad Pitt as the intrepid, emotionally aloof astronaut who braves facing his past to try…
