Morgan Wallen, Kane Brown, HARDY + More Added to ‘Nashville’s Big Bash’

Plenty of stars have been added to this year’s New Year’s Eve: Nashville’s Big Bash. The televised event will now include Morgan Wallen, Kane Brown, HARDY, Blake Shelton with Trace Adkins, Carly Pearce, Jon Pardi, Jackson Dean, Cody Johnson, Brothers Osborne with Trombone Shorty, Megan Moroney, Parker McCollum and Bailey Zimmerman.

The new artists join a previously announced lineup that includes Thomas Rhett, Lainey Wilson, Old Dominion and Lynyrd Skynyrd. The five-hour broadcast will countdown to midnight for East Coast viewers, and continue with the famed Music Note Drop at midnight Central Time, from the Bicentennial Mall stage.

“Building on what we have established over the last two years by focusing on our artists, the fans and the vibrancy of downtown Nashville, this year’s lineup is shaping up to be our most exciting yet.” Executive Producer Robert Deaton said when the original lineup was announced. “We will celebrate 50 years of the iconic Southern Rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd, the skyrocketing Lainey Wilson and country music superstar Thomas Rhett with over a dozen artists and special guests still to be announced.

“Nashville is quickly becoming THE destination for New Year’s Eve, and we are honored that CBS wants to help us continue to show off our music and incredible city with a new multi-year deal!” he added.

The Nashville’s Big Bash will serve as the unofficial kick-off for big years for both Wallen and Brown. Wallen announced earlier this year that he was extending his One Night At A Time World Tour into 2024, adding back-to-back nights at all of his tour stops, with three nights performing at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium.

“Thank y’all for an insanely fun and fulfilling 2023 tour,” Wallen said when the tour was announced. “It was impossible for me to hit every stadium that I wanted to in 2023, so we’re gonna keep this tour going in 2024. See y’all out there!”

Brown is also heading out on a major tour in 2024, with his In The Air Tour, joined by an impressive list of opening acts at various dates on the tour, including Chris YoungTyler Hubbard, Parmalee, Cole Swindell, Pardi and Zimmerman.

“Tyler Hubbard is coming out with me. Really pumped to have him out there,” Brown told his record label. “A lot of high energy. He actually, him and FGL they took me out on my first tour ever. So it’d be cool to have him back on the road with us.”

Brown is also excited to be joined by Parmalee, since his relationship with them goes back a long time.

“I played acoustic and I opened for them and Granger Smith,” Brown said. “So another full circle moment. Really excited to have them guys out there. I just hope that they play golf, so we can get some golfing in.“

 New Year’s Eve: Nashville’s Big Bash will be available to stream the next day for Paramount+ Essential subscribers.
