ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta officials say rapper T.I. and rock band Sister Hazel will headline the city’s “Peach Drop” this year.

Local news media report that the city announced Friday that both will perform at the Underground Atlanta. The city traditionally lowers an 800-pound peach to mark the clock striking midnight on New Year’s Eve.

The event, considered the largest New Year’s Eve celebration in the Southeast, also includes music and a fireworks show.

Initially, the sale of the Underground Atlanta shopping complex property to a private developer put this year’s event in question.

The Grammy-winning T.I., who is the self-proclaimed “King of the South,” is a native of Atlanta. Sister Hazel has five members including Ken Block, Jett Beres, Andrew Copeland, Ryan Newell and Mark Trojanowski.
