Ringin’ in the New Year in the Big Apple.

This year, we have a couple of country artists taking the stage for CNN’s New Year’s Eve Live with hosts Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen.

Miranda Lambert and Darius Rucker will perform for fans throughout the evening, in addition to the Jonas Brothers, Maroon 5, Rod Stewart, Enrique Iglesias and Flo Rida.

The special will air live at 8PM EST on New Year’s Eve (December 31st) from New York City’s Times Square as they count down to the iconic ball drop at midnight.

CNN correspondents will be stationed across North America to assist in other time zones, with Richard Quest reporting from the NYC crowds.

Once the clock strikes midnight on the east coast, CNN coverage will transition to the celebration in the central time zone in Austin, Texas.

It’s unclear if all of the performances will happen live from Times Square, as some could potentially be performed live from other city’s.

Either way, I’ll be happy to see Miranda on my TV counting down to 2024 with some great country music… and seeing as she’s been bringing out all the stops in Las Vegas with her Velvet Rodeo residency for a while now, I know this will be no different in terms of the entertainment factor.
