NASHVILLE, TN – Sept. 12, 2019 – Reigning CMA and ACM Entertainer of the Year and four-time GRAMMY winner Keith Urban will headline the 11th annual Jack Daniel’s Music City Midnight: New Year’s Eve in Nashville (#NashvilleNYE) for a fourth consecutive year at the Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park.
