Nashville New Year's Eve

Each year, thousands of New Year’s Eve revelers hit the streets of downtown Nashville, but this year the annual Bash on Broadway will entertain people far beyond Music City.

For the first time ever, the celebration will be featured on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve television special.

A famous Nashville face will be hosting part of the program.

Chip Esten, who plays Deacon Claybourne on the ABC show Nashville, has been asked to host a portion of the live broadcast from Music City.

“It’s funny, you expect some big drum roll or a big magical way but it was just an email I received asking me if I’d be interested in being a part of that and I couldn’t type fast enough to say yes,” Esten explained.

Esten said he grew up watching the iconic show and is excited to be part of it.

“It still blows my mind; first of all, it’s so appropriate that Nashville is a part of that now because this is Music City and part of the sound of this country. I don’t mean country music, I mean the entire country and what comes out of this place so that makes sense, Esten told News 2.

He will introduce Lady Antebellum and Gavin DeGraw, who are performing live from Nashville.

“It’s going to be a great, great night for me, for my family, and for everybody here in Nashville, a good time,” said Esten.

The broadcast will air Dec. 31 on Nashville’s News 2.
