Atlanta, Georgia southern rock/outlaw country act BLACKBERRY SMOKE have been confirmed for the Music City New Year's Eve Bash on Broadway in Nashville, Tennessee.
BLACKBERRY SMOKE will be joining the likes of HANK WILLIAMS JR., BRETT ELDREDGE, KOPECKY FAMILY BAND and STRIKING MATCHES to ring in the new year in true southern style with a huge outdoor celebration in front of 60,000 fans. The show is free to the public and will feature a host of great live music, a giant music note leading the countdown to the new year, and a massive fireworks display to top it all off.
BLACKBERRY SMOKE frontman CHARLIE STARR comments:
"What better way to finish up 2013 than a street party with Bocephus. Anybody wanting to sit down better stay home for this one."
