“New Year’s Eve is the one party we celebrate all over the world,” King said. “I wouldn’t want to spend it any other place than Music City! I’m so excited to get to host another beautiful night of music, friends, love and joy. I can’t wait to celebrate an incredible year and welcome a new one together.”

“Being back in Nashville co-hosting with my girl Elle is something I look forward to every year,” Smith added. “We’re gonna put on one heck of a show from Music City, and ‘Nashville’s Big Bash’ will be the perfect soundtrack to ring in another year with family and friends.”
