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
