NBC just announced the lineup for their big New Year’s Eve show, and unlike many ball drop events, they didn’t forget to include a little country music. ‘The Voice’ coach and favored ‘Honey Bee’ hitmaker Blake Shelton will take the stage on ‘New Year’s Eve With Carson Daly’ alongside fellow judge Cee Lo Green, hip-hop’s Drake, pop’s Jessie J, Tony Bennett and the comedy styling of Jimmy Fallon, among others.

The show is a two-hour live special, so Shelton will get to enjoy the festivities as they happen in New York City’s Times Square when the calendar changes to 2012. This year marks the eighth anniversary of Daly’s show, which he says is the highlight of his year, every year. “There is no better place to be in the world on New Year’s Eve than in Times Square,” Daly said of the show in an announcement. The special pulls in millions of viewers each holiday season. “I look forward to this night all year — to ring in the New Year with millions of people across the country — it’s a blast!”

‘New Year’s Eve With Carson Daly’ will kick off at 10PM ET on Dec. 31 with performances from the artists mentioned, leading up to the few minutes before the New Year rings in. To catch Shelton and the rest of the fun New Year’s happenings, tune in to NBC.
