Brantley Gilbert Added to ‘New Year’s Rockin’ Eve’ Lineup
While some will be ringing in the New Year with one too many choruses of 'Auld Lang Syne,' others will be partying down with some of music's biggest stars at 'Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve With Ryan Seacrest 2015,' and country rocker Brantley Gilbert was recently added to the mix of performances.
The 'One Hell of an Amen' hitmaker is joining just-announced acts Ella Henderson, Nick Jonas, Nico & Vinz and Train, as well as One Direction, Charli XCX, Meghan Trainor and host Fergie, at the Billboard Hollywood Party. Their performances in Los Angeles, Calif., will be shown via satellite.
At 'Rockin' New Year's Eve' headquarters in Times Square in New York City, performances will include Taylor Swift, Florida Georgia Line, Idina Menzel and Magic!. Lady Antebellum and Gavin DeGraw are set to perform live via satellite from Nashville, Tenn., and Elton John will be remote in Brooklyn.
There's no word on which song Gilbert will be performing as we move into 2015, but he has plenty to choose from: His record 'Just as I Am' won Favorite Country Album at the 2014 American Music Awards.
Other country artists will be welcoming 2015 at various New Year's Eve events: The Band Perry is scheduled for Pitbull's 'New Year's Revolution' show, which broadcasts from Miami; Blake Shelton will headline NBC's 'New Year's Eve With Carson Daly;' and Keith Urban is bringing a free NYE concert to fans in Niagara Falls, Ontario.
