CBS has announced Elle King and the new host of “Entertainment Tonight Weekend” Rachel Smith will co-host “New Year’s Eve Live: Nashville’s Big Bash.”
On the night of December 31, King will also perform her hit songs. She will join dozens of other performers, including Lainey Wilson, Thomas Rhett and Lynyrd Skynyrd, at the Bicentennial Mall stage in Nashville.
The five-hour star-studded celebration to welcome the new year will air live during 7:30-10 pm ET/PT and 10:30 pm-1:05 am ET/PT on the CBS Television Network and stream on Paramount+. The musical event will stream live and on-demand for Paramount+ with Showtime subscribers, or on demand for Paramount+ Essential subscribers the day after the episode airs.
“New Year’s Eve is the one party we celebrate all over the world,” King said in a statement. “I wouldn’t want to spend it any other place than Music City! I’m so excited to get to host another beautiful night of music, friends, love, and joy. I can’t wait to celebrate an incredible year and welcome a new one together.”
“Being back in Nashville co-hosting with my girl Elle is something I look forward to every year,” Smith added. “We’re gonna put on one heck of a show from Music City, and Nashville’s Big Bash will be the perfect soundtrack to ring in another year with family and friends.”
