Organizers announced Thursday that Keith Urban will headline this year's New Year's Eve party in Nashville.

Urban will be joined by Styx, A Thousand Horses, Moon Taxi, Charlie Worsham and the Fisk Jubilee Singers.

The event will be held at Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park Mall for the first time. Officials said they moved the party form Lower Broadway to "accommodate growth and enhance security."

A crowd of 150,000 attended last year's festivities on Broadway, generating more than $22 million in visitor spending.

"The diversity of this hometown lineup underscores why we are Music City," said Beth Seigenthaler Courtney, chairman of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp and president of DVL Seigenthaler, in a news release. "From big stars to rising stars and from country to rock to indie, this A-list is only possible in Nashville."

The event will begin at 4 p.m. with a DJ. Mayor Megan Barry will be on hand to raise the Music Note at 6:15 p.m. The Music Note, accompanied by fireworks and confetti, will drop at midnight.
