Fans can bring in the New Year in Nashville with a free show featuring Keith Urban, Brett Young, Peter Frampton, Judah & the Lion, Caitlyn Smith, Devon Gilfillian and Fisk Jubilee Singers.

The free event—dubbed the Jack Daniel’s Music City Midnight: New Year’s Eve in Nashville—will take place at the Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park, which is approximately one mile from the heart of downtown. This will be the fourth year that Keith is headlining the event.

Gates will open at 4 p.m. CT on Dec. 31, followed by the raising of the Music Note (Nashville’s equivalent to NYC’s ball drop) to kick off the live music concert. In addition, the Nashville show will be featured on NBC’s New Year’s Eve national broadcast from Times Square in New York, hosted by Carson Daly, Chrissy Teigen and Leslie Jones.
