Ring in 2023 with Jimmie Allen, Elle King, and more country stars live from Nashville!
CBS announced the pair will co-host New Year’s Eve Live: Nashville’s Big Bash alongside Entertainment Tonight’s Rachel Smith.
The second annual celebration will include a star-studded lineup of nearly 50 performances including Kelsea Ballerini, Little Big Town, Zac Brown Band, Brooks & Dunn, and more. The special will culminate in a fireworks display at midnight.
“When I got the call to host NEW YEAR’S EVE LIVE: NASHVILLE’S BIG BASH, I was super excited and started looking forward to it right then,” said Jimmie Allen. “I was part of the show last year as a performer, so being able to co-host it this year with Elle King and Rachel Smith and see all the great performances that are lined up – it’s going to be awesome. Hosting is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time and to do it on CBS is a big deal. I get to represent not only Nashville and country music but my home state of Delaware – primetime television on New Year’s Eve! Let’s bring this new year in right!”
