Bash on Broadway brings in record crowd

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A record crowd attended Music City's Fourth Annual New Year's Eve Bash on Broadway celebration Monday night.


According to a news release, more than 50,000 people were in the crowd, making it one of Nashville's most successful New Year's Eve events.

Despite the rainy weather, the crowd enjoyed more than five hours of live music, a notable music note drop and fireworks show.

Remembering that the guitar failed to drop in 2010 and the music note in 2011 also didn't drop all the way, president of the Nashville Convention and Visitors Bureau, Butch Spyridon, seemed happy things went off without a hitch.


He explained, "The combination of a great crowd, diverse lineup of music, and ‘successful' note drop was a perfect way to ring in the New Year in Music City."


The company in charge of the Music Note drop made some changes to ensure a successful event.

They said they used a different motor and control on a computerized system to make the big drop foolproof.  They also practiced the drop approximately 15 times during rehearsal.

Sober Ride a success

The Davidson County Sheriff's Office Sober Ride program proved successful once again Monday night by providing 609 free, safe and sober rides home.

More than 100 volunteers picked-up riders at two downtown Nashville locations.

Sheriff's office organizers will now focus their attention on St. Patrick's Day in March.
