HANK JR TO HEADLINE FREE 2013 NEW YEARS EVE "BASH ON BROADWAY" IN NASHVILLE
Nashville, Tenn. (October 1, 2013) – Grammy award-winning country singer/songwriter Hank Williams Jr. will headline the fifth annual Music City New Year’s Eve ‘Bash on Broadway’ event in downtown Nashville, the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp (NCVC) announced today. A city that knows how to throw a good party, Music City will once again offer one of the biggest New Year’s Eve celebrations in the country with multiple days of free live music and Nashville’s own midnight “Music Note Drop®.”
“Football, football and Hank! All our rowdy friends are staying over this year,” said Butch Spyridon, president and CEO of the NCVC. “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?”
“This year is going to be very special on New Year’s Eve,” says Hank Williams Jr. “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.”
Sponsors of this year’s New Year’s Eve ‘Bash on Broadway’ include Miller Lite, Coors Light, Jack Daniel’s, Advance Financial 24/7 and McDonald’s.
