Party Time? Excellent

Bash on BroadwayThe recipe for a successful New Year’s Eve celebration is really quite simple, and something that Nashville has mastered like a freakin’ Iron Chef:

  1. Music
  2. Alcohol
  3. Falling Objects

Well, whether”Falling Objects” can be considered mastered is up for debate, but Nashville’s biggest New Year’s Eve party throws that question to the wind in true Music City style by dropping a 10 foot tall guitar. Presented by the Hard Rock Cafe, Nashville’s second annual Bash on Broadway is a day-long celebration with plenty of activities and entertainment, capped off with fireworks and an 85 foot guitar drop at midnight. Other sponsors–Jack Daniel’s, Miller Lite, Coors Light–will ensure a steady supply of inebriation, while live performances from country favorites Phil Vassar, Will Hoge, Heidi Newfield and Damien Horne will charm Lower Broadway into 2011.

If you haven’t noticed, downtown is already brimming with anticipation for the Music City Bowl tomorrow (GO UT!), but you can expect crowds rivaling Garth Brooks for Friday’s festivities. Broadway will be shut down from 1st through 3rd and filled with friends from near and far, all ready to welcome promises of new hope and a fresh start. So, by all means, live it up: start drinking early, meet some friends old and new, remember and forget 2010, rock out to some world-class tunes and begin 2011 of firm financial footing (nothing beats free).

Storme Warren, host of GAC’s Headline Country and emcee for the 2010 Bash on Broadway, will kick off the live music at 7:30pm, with fireworks and a guitar dropping promptly at midnight. Feliz Año Nuevo!
