everyone really looks forward to. We hope everyone will come out and
help us celebrate our 55th birthday!”

About Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge:
Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge has operated across the alley from the Ryman
almost continuously since 1960. Its proprietor from 1960 to 1978, Hattie
Louise “Tootsie” Bess, bought the lounge called “Mom’s” and named it
for herself. According to tradition, a painter mistakenly painted the
exterior orchid purple. The color was never changed and became Tootsie’s
signature color. Over the years, she served such famous customers as
Kris Kristofferson, Faron Young and Willie Nelson when they were still
up-and-coming artists, and Tootsie was well-known for her generosity
toward struggling musicians. The photo and memorabilia-lined walls are
called “Tootsie’s Wall of Fame.” Today, Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge is a
must-see Music City destination for tourists and is frequented by
locals, including some of the biggest names in country music, who often
drop in and surprise patrons with impromptu performances. Kenny Chesney
with classic rock icon Steve Miller, Keith Urban, Kix Brooks, Montgomery
Gentry, Kid Rock, Steven Tyler, Randy Houser, Jamey Johnson, Dierks
Bentley and Hank Williams, Jr. are among the artists who have recently
performed there. For additional information, visit www.tootsies.net.
