Dierks Bentley says he is hoping to perform collaborations with other country music stars during CBS‘ upcoming New Year’s Eve special.

More than 50 artists will stage live performances from Nashville’s Bicentennial Park and other venues around the city on “New Year’s Eve Live: Nashville’s Big Bash,” to be broadcast on CBS on December 31.

“When I found out this big CBS special was happening in my adopted hometown of Nashville where I’ve lived for almost 30 years, I really wanted to be part of it because it’s a special moment for the city, it’s a special moment for country music,” Bentley told reporters.

“I think they have 50 different artists performing for this event, so definitely would love to have some collaborations,” he added. “I’ve looked around to see who else is also playing on the stage with me and there’s some great artists there, so if they’re hanging around we’re definitely going to be pulling people up and trying to make it great.”

Artists set to take the stage during the five-hour special include Jason Aldean, Kelsea Ballerini, Gabby Barrett, Brooks & Dunn, Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, Zac Brown Band, Lady A and Carly Pearce.
