 Kings of Leon headline Jack Daniel's Bash on Broadway, NashvilleGRAMMY-winning recording artists Kings of Leon, one of the biggest rock bands in the world, will be headlining the free Jack Daniel's Bash on Broadway: New Year's Eve in Music City 2015.

"I can think of no place I'd rather play New Year's Eve than at home with 100,000 of my closest friends," said Nathan Followill.

The Jack Daniel's Bash on Broadway has consistently grown in size since it started 7-years ago, and 2014 drew a record crowd of over 130,000 people and was televised as part of ABC's New Year's Rockin' Eve international broadcast. While the crowd size will not be confirmed until after the event the Visitors Corporation is planning for 150,000 fans on Broadway - the largest crowd size ever for a Nashville concert!

Kings of Leon got their start in Nashville by playing open mic nights, songwriters' nights and booking gigs at local songwriter hot spots like the Bluebird Cafe. They were inducted into the Music City Walk of Fame and received the Music City Ambassador Award from Mayor Karl Dean in 2012 for bringing international attention to Nashville's diverse music scene.
