Hank Williams Jr. will headline the fifth annual New Year’s Eve “Bash on Broadway” in downtown Nashville. Music City will once again host one of the biggest New Year’s Eve celebrations in the country with multiple days of free live music and Nashville’s “Music Note Drop” at midnight. New Year’s Eve is also an important date for the Williams family as it marks the anniversary of Hank Williams, Sr.’s death.
“This year is going to be very special on New Year’s Eve,” said Hank. “December 31st will mark the 60th anniversary of daddy’s death. For years, I have not performed on New Year’s Eve in honor of my father, but this year is a monumental year in the history of Hank Williams. If daddy would have lived, he would have been 90 years old this year. I hope Music City is ready to boogie woogie, because Bocephus is going bring the party to Nashville.”
“Football, football and Hank!” said Butch Spyridon, president and CEO of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp. “All our rowdy friends are staying over this year. This may be the best end-of-year “mash-up” we have ever had with the Titans, the SEC and Hank ringing in the New Year. Are you ready?”
