“I actually love playing on New Years Eve – I’ve done it most of my life,” Urban tells the Tennessean. “So when they invited me to ring in 2017 here in my hometown, it was an immediate yes. I’ve lived here now for 24 years, so I know how Nashvillians know how to party and every year this one just gets bigger and bigger — so we’ll be bringing it.”
This performance is Urban’s second free show in Nashville this year. He will also be playing a sold out show at the Bridgestone Arena on November 11. The country superstar is also up for 4 major CMA nominations, including Entertainer of the Year.
