A record crowd of 150,000 people gathered at downtown Lower Broadway, Nashville to hear a diverse lineup of artists including Chris Stapleton, Kings of Leon, Kelsea Ballerini, and Wild Cub right before ringing in the new year.

If this didn’t excite you enough, Chris Stapleton and Kings of Leon decided to join forces and perform a cover of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Simple Man”.

Between Kings of Leon’s front man Caleb Followill and Chris Stapleton switching verses back and forth, this cover is everything you’ve ever dreamed of!

A couple of guitar solos also take place throughout the performance by guitarist Matthew Followill.

Take a look for yourself! Happy New Year y’all!
