Keith will close out 2018 with another headlining set as part of Nashville’s New Year’s Eve celebration for the third consecutive year. The country superstar will ring in 2019 at the city’s Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park as part of “Jack Daniel’s Music City Midnight: New Year’s Eve in Nashville.” He will be joined by Peter Frampton, Judah & the Lion, Caitlyn Smith, Devon Gilfillian and the Fisk Jubilee Singers.
In January, Keith will kick off the Australian leg of his Graffiti U World Tour before launching his first European tour in nearly a decade. Well known for his diverse collaborations, Keith recently revealed that he has a song in the works with Post Malone, also expected in early 2019.
“I love Post [Malone],” he tells E! News during a recent red carpet appearance. “We collaborated on a song for this Elvis [Presley] special. It’s going to be coming out in January. I had a blast.”
Keith went on to praise his duet partner: “He’s the real deal. He’s so eclectic, so steeped in all kinds of music. I love him,” he gushes.
