50,000 people packed Broadway from 1st Avenue all the way to 7th Avenue to see Lynyrd Skynyrd bring in 2012, but the free street bash is going to sound a little different this year when it ushers in 2013.
Monday night, The Fray and Sixpence Nonethericher will be providing a softer sound to New Year's eve. The live music starts at 7:30 p.m. followed by the big fireworks and music note drop at the stroke of midnight.
Last year's show was such a big hit that fans are coming from all over the country to experience a Music City style New Year's weekend for themselves.
"I love it, I like all the music," said Kristin Howard, who is visiting from Chicago. "I like that every bar has live stuff going on , that's a little bit different from what you find in Chicago."
"Oh, I love it," said Janette Zuppardo, a tourist from New Orleans. "I think it's a beautiful city. Lots to do and lots to see."
"This is all kind of new to me but we're really excited about it and just the culture here in Nashville is a lot different from Raleigh North Carolina and Charlotte," Jessica Ekstrom said.
The Bash on Broadway is free to the public.

Former Dyer County constable sentenced to prison
May 23, 2013 12:50 GMT
DYERSBURG, Tenn. (AP) -- Former Dyer County Constable Derick Shane Hundley has been sentenced to 25 years in federal prison.
The State Gazette (http://bit.ly/14UHydd ) reported Hundley was sentenced Monday after earlier entering a guilty plea to enticement of a minor through electronic means. The government dropped a child pornography count.
Prosecutors said Hundley, who is 30, used a cellphone to try to entice a minor female to have sex with him. Police arrested Hundley last July and found an external hard drive that contained numerous images of minors involved in sex. He resigned from the constable post he had won in 2010 after his arrest.
