While the world is talking NYC's New Year's Eve mishaps, we're focused on Jack Daniel's Music City Midnight New Year's Eve Celebration that took place on December 31, 2016 in Nashville, Tennessee. The show starred Keith Urban, who paid tribute to some of the great musicians we lost in 2016. His 8-minute set, leading up to the midnight countdown, included Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen, Take it Easy by Glen Frey, David Bowie's Heroes, Mama Tried by Merle Haggard, and Prince's Purple Rain. The audience clearly loved the medley, singing along and cheering loudly when Urban's wife, Nicole Kidman, joined him on stage to sing along to Heroes. Kidman remained on stage to dance to Mama Tried and Purple Rain, and it looked like she was having just as much fun as the crowd! Watch the set below.
