Nashville and Brooklyn hosted their own parties for this year's Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve.
Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve 2015 - co-presented once again by Ryan Seacrest - aired with performances spanning a handful of venues - not just the usual Hollywood and Times Square, New York concerts.

Over in Nashville was the Bash on Broadway New Year's Eve party which saw a record number of concert-goers at the event - approximately 130,000. It's unsurprising given some of the stellar acts that were lined up to enter 2015 in style, among them being country legends Lady Antebellum and Gavin Degraw, the latter of whom unveiled his debut compilation album last year entitled 'Finest Hour: The Best of Gavin DeGraw'.

Prizes were also given out to Rihanna, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, One Direction and more...
Originally set up by Dick Clarke in 1973 after ABC lost its rights to air the Grammy Awards, The American Music Awards has since become one of the most biggest nights in showbiz in the US and has established itself as a standalone prize in its own right. The A-listers took to the the red carpet in force on Sunday, 24 November for the 41st annual AMAs at Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre where many a surprise was had, and plenty of prizes were given out.

Hosted by rapper Pitbull, the 41st incarnation of the awards saw Macklemore & Ryan Lewis lead the nominations poll with six mentions, with Taylor Swift and Justin Timberlake falling behind with five, and it was these two who would eventually go on to leave the Nokia Theatre with the most awards for the night.

Vampire Weekend held off stiff competition from Demi Lovato to land their second Billboard 200 No.1.
Indie rockers Vampire Weekend have topped the Billboard 200 chart with their latest record 'Modern Vampires of the City,' besting commercial efforts from the likes of X-Factor judge Demi Lovato, Lady Antebellum and the Great Gatsby soundtrack featuring music from Jay-Z and Florence and the Machine.
The New York outfit's album sold 134,000 in its first week of sales, according to figures compiled by Nielsen SoundScan. It was also the first independently distributed album to debut at No.1 on the chart since country singer Jason Aldean's 'Night Train' in November last year. It was another country star - George Strait - who finished in second place this week with sales of 120,000, while Lovato's 'Demi' sold 110,000 copies to take No.3. Last week's No.1, 'Golden' by Lady Antebellum fell to No.5 while the soundtrack to Gatsby dropped to No.4 from No.2.
Meanwhile, on Billboard's Digital Songs chart, rapper and producer team Macklemore & Ryan Lewis held the top spot with 231,000 downloads of their hit 'Can't Hold Us.' Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines, featuring rapper T.I. and Pharrell Williams took second, ahead of Pink.

The Voice have a stellar line-up of big name performers booked for the season
The producers of The Voice USA have arranged a varied line-up of music stars to perform on the show in the coming weeks, Reuters reports. Amongst them is Rod Stewart, who will be performing music from ‘Time,’ his first album of original material in over 10 years. He is scheduled to appear on the show on May 10, according to the report and he will be joined by Cee-Lo Green – formerly a judge on the show. Green is expected to perform his new song ‘Only You.’
On May 14, the show’s organisers have lined up a performance from Lady Antebellum. The Grammy award winners are currently promoting their album Golden and have been invited onto the show; currently one of US TV’s prime spots for promoting artists’ new material. The pop singer Robin Thicke will also be making an appearance on the same show as Lady Antebellum, as will rapper T.I. and singer / producer Pharrell, who recently guested on Daft Punk’s comeback track Get Lucky. The show averages around 14 million viewers across the two weekly shows.
The Voice is currently in its fourth season in the US, having recently drafted in Shakira and Usher to replace Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera. The season will draw to a close in June, when a winner will be chosen and rewarded with a recording contract.

The singer and Tyrrell, who plays drums in country group Love and Theft, tied the knot in January this year and have since been far too busy with their professional lives to get down to business in the bedroom properly. However, as Scott says in her Tweet, Christmas came early for the two this year with a little addition to the family expected in summer 2013.
Scott wrote on her Twitter: "Chris & I are excited to announce that our Christmas gift has arrived a little early this year! We are having a BABY! We feel so blessed!!!"

Hilary and husband Chris Tyrrell, who play drums in the country outfit Love And Theft, tied the knot in January this year and after a year of hard work on their musical relationship, the two have ended the year on a truly wonderful personal note. Hillary took to Twitter to exclaim her excitement saying, "Chris & I are excited to announce that our Christmas gift has arrived a little early this year! We are having a BABY! We feel so blessed!!!"
Still, regardless of the fact that she has a bun in the oven, Scott has yet to find the time to slow things down with her professional life. The singer flew in to Las Vegas just moments after announcing the good news, where she and the rest of the band will perform at Monday's American Country Awards (Dec 10). That's not the end of things for the hectic festive schedule either, as the band will continue to promote their first Christmas album, On This Winter's Night, until the new year. Maybe then Hillary will be able to put her feet up for a little bit and get ready for motherhood.
The 2012 CMT Country Music Awards took place on Monday (December 3, 2012) in Nashville but this year, the winners will be kept top secret until Saturday December 8, when the star-studded show will be broadcast at 10pm on CMT. The 90 minute special will be hosted by Rascal Flatts and Hayden Panettiere and will feature performances from some of country music’s biggest stars, as well as appearances from a number of A-list sports and entertainment stars.
Amongst those treading the boards for the illustrious awards show were Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum, Kenny Chesney and Sheryl Crow and also making an appearance on the night were the Academy Award winning actor Morgan Freeman, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Sammy Hagar, Metallica’s James Hetfield, the shock-rocker Kid Rock and Miranda Lambert. From the world of sport, the Atlanta Braves’ Chipper Jones put in an appearance, as did the Nashville Predators’ Mike Fisher.
This is the first year that CMT have kept the lid on the list of honorees. As a result, country music fans will have to wait until the weekend if they want a slice of the action, when the 90-minute special is aired. According to CMT’s press release, the show will be “the most exclusive gathering of country music superstars of the year and celebrates the class of 2012 with an incredible evening of wall-to-wall performances and special appearances from others in entertainment.”
