It’ll take 12 people two days to get Nashville ready for the annual New Year’s Eve bash, complete with a music note drop at Bicentennial Capitol Mall as the clock strikes midnight.

The beloved music note drop, which is made locally, is a Nashville staple.

“I mean it’s great for us. It’s a lot of exposure. A lot of pride goes into it knowing that a lot of folks see it all across the country, maybe even the world,” said MadeFirst owner Jonathan Hammel. “It’s a local made product, which is pretty cool. It’s a show piece for Nashville and we’re happy to be a part of it.”

Keith Urban is headlining this year’s “Jack Daniel’s Music City Midnight: New Year’s Eve in Nashville.”

This year’s marks the eighth annual New Year’s Eve celebration, but it’s the first time it will be held at Bicentennial Mall.
