Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve went from seeing country stars performing in the pouring rain in Times Square to staying dry in Hollywood and New Orleans. Ryan Seacrest, Jenny McCarthy, Lucy Hale, and Ciara were the hosts throughout the night from coast to coast keeping us on our toes with all the performers to come.
Early on Dan + Shay performed their track “All To Myself” and their smash hit “Tequila” braving it out in the rain during their performance. Confetti dropping and the wet conditions didn’t stop the duo from having the time of their lives in rainy Times Square. Next, with Florida Georgia Line’s anticipating album Can’t Say I Ain’t Country due out on Feb. 15th, the duo performed their single “Simple” and their hit “Cruise” in New Orleans just ten minutes before the ball dropped. Along with FGL in New Orleans, Maren Morris took the stage with her hit “The Middle” that was a massive part of her and radio’s 2018.
After the ball dropped and the clock struck midnight, Kelsea Ballerini came out singing her new sassy-single “Miss Me More.” Ballerini had an incredible year and dropping this girl power anthem was just a taste of what’s to come for her in 2019. Kane Brown and Lauren Alaina sang their no. 1 duet “What Ifs,” then later Brown performed his new single “Lose It.”
It was a night full of country music on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve which certainly leads us to believe that 2019 will be a successful and promising year to come for the genre!
