Sam Hunt will close 2019 and kick off 2020 by performing on a long-running television staple. The country superstar will hit the stage in Times Square to perform on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve With Ryan Seacrest on Dec. 31.
Ryan Seacrest announced the lineup for the annual television broadcast in a tweet on Tuesday morning (Dec. 17), writing that the program is "going big for the new decade." In addition to Hunt, the Times Square lineup will include Post Malone, BTS and Alanis Morissette with the cast of the Broadway musical Jagged Little Pill.
