CHART-TOPPING ARTISTS FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE AND MAREN MORRIS TO PERFORM LIVE FROM THE ALLSTATE(R) FAN FEST IN NEW ORLEANS DURING 'DICK CLARK'S NEW YEAR'S ROCKIN' EVE WITH RYAN SEACREST 2019'

The New Year's Celebration Begins Live at 8:00 p.m. EST / 7:00 p.m. CST on ABC From New York City's Times Square

To ring in the New Year, multiplatinum-selling duo Florida Georgia Line and award-winning singer/songwriter/producer Maren Morris are slated to perform live on "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2019" from the Allstate Fan Fest in New Orleans, Louisiana, where locals and tourists gather each year to celebrate the New Year in advance of the annual Allstate Sugar Bowl(R). As previously announced, award-winning actress Lucy Hale will return to host the third annual Central Time Zone celebration from New Orleans, providing viewers with exclusive performances and celebrity and fan interviews leading up to the midnight countdown and stunning fleur-de-lis drop near Jackson Square to ring in the New Year. America's biggest celebration of the year will take place MONDAY, DEC. 31, beginning at 8:00 p.m. EST / 7:00 p.m. CST on The ABC Television Network.

Ranked as the No. 1 music special of last year, "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2019" marks the 47th anniversary of America's biggest celebration of the year and will include 5 � hours of special performances and reports on New Year's celebrations from around the globe. Ryan Seacrest will host the prime-time festivities and lead the traditional countdown to midnight from Times Square in New York City, as he has for the last 13 years, with live onsite reporting from actress and comedian Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg. Multiplatinum music superstar Ciara will ring in the New Year from the West Coast as the host of the Hollywood party, joined by performances from Lauren Alaina, Kelsea Ballerini, Bazzi, Kane Brown, Camila Cabello, The Chainsmokers, Ciara, Foster the People, Halsey, Dua Lipa, Ella Mai, Shawn Mendes, Charlie Puth and Weezer, as well as collaborations from Kane Brown featuring Lauren Alaina, Macklemore with Skylar Grey presented by Planet Fitness and The Chainsmokers featuring Kelsea Ballerini. Airing just after midnight, Post Malone will perform from a stop on his current tour in Brooklyn, New York, marking the first television performance of the New Year.

"I'm excited to celebrate my first New Year as the mayor of New Orleans and proud to have the New Year's Rockin' Eve team there to mark the moment," said Mayor LaToya Cantrell, New Orleans. "We're kicking off a whole new chapter in the history of our city and pointing the way forward to the next 300 years!"

"We're preparing for another stellar 'Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest' event, broadcasting New Orleans ringing in the New Year live from the French Quarter. For the third straight year, this partnership gives us the opportunity to showcase our joie de vivre and penchant for hospitality to a national audience," said Stephen Perry, president and CEO of New Orleans & Company. "We're eager to kick off the new year with a reminder to millions watching at home that nobody hosts celebrations quite like we do."

"Once again, this year we are thrilled to partner with New Orleans & Company, New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corporation, The Allstate Sugar Bowl and dick clark productions to ring in the new year and showcase our great state, our attractions and, of course, our people," said Lieutenant Governor Billy Nungesser. "These live shots from Louisiana are an ideal way to capture the enthusiasm of the New Year holiday, while reminding viewers from across the country where to come and 'feed their soul' in 2019."

"For 85 years, the Sugar Bowl has been bringing the best in college football to our city and guaranteeing that New Orleans is one of the best places to celebrate New Year's Eve," said Paul Hoolahan, CEO of the Allstate Sugar Bowl. "By adding Florida Georgia Line and Maren Morris to the festivities, there's little doubt that our visitors from Georgia and Texas, along with local fans, will experience a great new year's celebration."

Billboard's first-ever Trailblazer Award recipients, Florida Georgia Line, continue to build their ever-expanding empire of innovative artistry and entrepreneurial endeavors throughout their colossal career. Turning up the heat with "Talk You Out of It," the steamy single follows platinum chart-topper "Simple" (their 16th No. 1 overall as artists) off their anticipated fourth studio album. FGL's collaborations have amplified their appeal as the 4X platinum-certified, No. 1 "Meant to Be" with Bebe Rexha is nominated for Best Country Duo/Group Performance at the 61st GRAMMY(R) Awards (Feb. 10 on CBS). Shattering records of their own accord, "Meant to Be" also led the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for 50 straight weeks, which is now the longest reign overall. Exceeding 4.2 billion streams, 31 million tracks and more than 4.3 million albums sold worldwide, the BMLG Records duo became the first Country act to achieve RIAA's diamond certification (10 million copies sold) for their 11X-platinum breakout "Cruise," which is the best-selling digital Country single of all time (SoundScan). Since 2012, FGL has earned prestigious honors from the AMAs, ACM Awards, CMA Awards, Billboard Music Awards and CMT Music Awards, plus left their mark on several chart-crushing songs as writers. The bona fide visionaries have launched their own Old Camp Peach Pecan Whiskey, as well as thriving businesses: FGL House, meet + greet, Tree Vibez Music and Tribe Kelley.

Twenty-eight-year-old singer/songwriter Maren Morris has quickly established herself with vocal stylings that reflect her country, folk and pop influences. Armed with sheer talent, honest lyrics and a completely magnetic presence, Morris' label-debut album, the gold-certified "Hero," released via Columbia Nashville on June 3, 2016. One week after it was available, "Hero" entered the Billboard Top Country Albums chart at No. 1 and No. 5 on the Billboard 200 Chart, which spans across all genres. With this, the Arlington, Texas, native became the first artist in the history of Columbia Nashville to open at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Charts with a debut album in the Soundscan era. Morris' debut single from "Hero," "My Church," set a record at country radio by having the most chart reporting stations to play a debut single by a country artist with 107 stations the week it hit the airwaves, in addition to being certified platinum by the RIAA. Later in 2016, Morris tied for the most nominations with five at the 50th CMA Awards, including Album of the Year ("Hero"), Female Vocalist of the Year, Single of the Year ("My Church"), Song of the Year ("My Church") and New Artist of the Year, which she won, marking her first CMA Award. She was tapped by Billboard Magazine to receive the Billboard Breakthrough Artist Award at the 11th Annual Billboard Women in Music Gala, as well as being awarded the Breakthrough Artist Award by the Music Business Association at Music Biz 2017. Kicking off 2017, Morris took home the GRAMMY for Best Country Solo Performance for "My Church" at the 59th GRAMMY Awards, in addition to having the most nominations for a country music artist with four to her credit, including Best New Artist, Best Country Album ("Hero") and Best Country Song as the songwriter and performer ("My Church"). She received six nominations at the 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards, including Female Vocalist of the Year, New Female Vocalist of the Year, which she took home the trophy for, Album of the Year (as artist and producer) for "Hero," and Single Record of the Year (as artist and producer) for "My Church." Morris was also named Radio Disney's Best New Country Artist at the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards. Morris wrapped 2017 with the conclusion of her first-ever headlining "HERO Tour 2017," which also included dates in the U.K. Looking ahead at 2018, Maren received her fifth career GRAMMY Award nomination for Best Country Solo Performance ("I Could Use a Love Song") for the 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards. In addition, "I Could Use a Love Song" was Morris' first No. 1 country radio single, as both the performer and songwriter, reaching the top of both Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase Country charts in January 2018. Morris' current single for Country radio is the fun fan favorite song "Rich." In May 2018, Morris took home her first trophy for Top Country Female Artist at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards. Though rooted deeply in country music, Morris has acquired a global, non-genre specific fan base. It's that global fan base's appetite that Morris has satisfied in 2018 by collaborating with electronic house DJ and producer Zedd, along with electronic duo Grey for the smash hit "The Middle," which spent seven weeks at No. 1 on Billboard's Pop Songs airplay chart and seven weeks at No. 1 at the Adult Pop Songs airplay chart. In addition, Morris recently concluded the Niall Horan "Flicker World Tour 2018," which spanned across New Zealand, Australia, Canada and the USA. Maren concluded 2018 with the high-note bookend of receiving five nominations for the upcoming "61st Annual GRAMMY Awards" to be held in February 2019. The nominations include Record of the Year [all genre] ("The Middle" - Zedd, Maren Morris and Grey), Pop Duo/Group Performance ("The Middle" - Zedd, Maren Morris and Grey), Country Solo Performance ("Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters"), Country Duo/Group Performance ("Dear Hate" - Maren Morris feat. Vince Gill) and Country Song ("Dear Hate" - Maren Morris feat. Vince Gill).
