Nashville Archives – Crown Cruise Vacations
Riverboats and passengers who are going to be in Nashville on New Year’s Eve are in for a musical treat. And for folks who can’t be in Music City as the old year ends, the fun will be televised live on CBS.
“From the very beginning, our goal was for Nashville to be the Central Time zone celebration on national television and rival New York City,” Butch Spyridon, President and CEO of Nashville Convention and Visitor Corp., said in a news release.
After a very difficult year, Nashville is going to celebrate a bright future with the largest fireworks display show in the city’s history.
The Let Freedom Sing! Music City July 4th event also will feature country music superstar Brad Paisley with fireworks synchronized to a live performance by the GRAMMY-winning Nashville Symphony.
When riverboats dock in Nashville, they will be visiting one of only two destinations in the United States to be designated as a “Safe Travels” destination.
“From the beginning of the pandemic, Nashville has worked to be a safe city for residents and visitors alike,” Mayor John Cooper said in a news release.

Growing up in the Great Smoky Mountains, Dolly Parton read a book that helped change her life. Although her father couldn’t read or write, he encouraged his children to embrace education and was proud to see his daughter enjoy “book learning.”
Patsy Cline saved the memories of her life. That memorabilia, after being locked away for more than half a century, is now being seen at the Patsy Cline Museum in Nashville.
“Patsy Cline was very sentimental,” said museum founder Bill Miller. “I think people will be really surprised at what we have in the museum.”
