Article Title: Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau Presents Music City Bash on
Article: Ring in the New Year in true Music City style as the Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau presents the New Year’s Eve celebration along Broadway. The event is free and will include an exciting fireworks display and an impressive Music Drop® to help count down to the New Year.
  Musical talent for this year will include The Fray, Sixpence None the Richer, Love and Theft, and Striking Matches as they take the stage with explosive performances. .
  In 2009, The Gabe Dixon Band, Tommy Sims and Friends, Marc Broussard, Jonny Lang, The Dirt Drifters, and Rodney Atkins performed to a crowd of 15,000 party-goers on the streets of downtown Music City. At midnight, a giant lighted guitar dropped 80 feet and set off a fireworks display that welcomed 2010.
  The 2010 New Year’s celebration broke the previous attendee record. Musical talent such as Damien Horne, Heidi Newfield, Will Hoge, and Phil Vassar headlined the second annual Music City New Year's Eve Bash on Broadway on December 31, 2010. Just 8 months after the historic floods of May 2010, more than 25,000 people came out to celebrate the outgoing 2010 and incoming 2011 in downtown Nashville.
  They say that the third time's a charm. In Nashville's case, it was true. The Bash on Broadway more than doubled in size in 2011. The crowd reached 55,000 on December 31, 2011. Edens Edge, THE FARM, Jeffrey Steele, and Lynyrd Skynyrd jammed out for nearly 6 hours of free live music on the streets of downtown Nashville. The 15-foot-tall red music note was introduced in 2011. The midnight Music Drop slowly dropped 115 feet, triggering a fantastic fireworks display and confetti cannons at the stroke of midnight. The confetti cannons were also new in 2011. With a donation to the TJ Martell Foundation (supporting cancer and AIDS research), revelers put their New Year's Wish on a strip of paper throughout the night and in the days leading to the main event. Those strips of paper shot out of these massive confetti cannons as the 2012 year was welcomed in.
  Music City's New Year's Eve Bash on Broadway has grown into one of the best New Year's Eve parties around. It's a free party where you can ring in the New Year with amazing music and thousands of your closest friends. More people, more music, and more fun every year and it promises to be even bigger and better as the 2013 year makes its debut.
