New Year's Eve revelers are always looking for the biggest party in town and, undoubtedly, this year it will be the Dirty Guv'nahs show at the Tennessee Theatre.

Knoxville.com is giving readers the chance to enjoy the event for free by giving away two free tickets to the show.

The Knoxville-based Dirty Guv'nahs have been enjoying ever-increasing popularity since forming on a whim in 2006. The act went on to tour the Eastern United States and regularly sell out concerts at Knoxville's Bijou Theatre.

The Dirty Guv'nahs released the band's third album, "Somewhere Beneath These Southern Skies," in August to critical acclaim. And the band has recently had songs featured on the TV shows "Nashville" and "Criminal Minds."

Relix magazine named the group as one of its "On the Verge" artists earlier this year.

The group's Tennessee Theatre show begins at 8 p.m. Monday, Dec. 31, with opening act A Thousand Horses.

No purchase is necessary to enter. Simply go to the Knoxville.com page on Facebook, "like" Knoxville.com and fill in the information. Entries will accepted until Dec. 16, and a winner will be announced shortly thereafter.

The contest is open only to 18-or-older legal residents in the following counties: Anderson, Blount, Campbell, Claiborne, Grainger, Hamblen, Hancock, Jefferson, Knox, Loudon, Monroe, Morgan, Roane, Sevier and Union.
