Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge is extending their annual “Birthday Bash” to a two-day event, with entertainment taking place on the outdoor Broadway stage on both Thursday and Friday nights. Thursday night, Terri Clark, Troy Gentry, Darryl Worley, and Daryle Singletary will take the stage, with more performers yet to be announced.
“The Tootsie’s Birthday Bash has become an annual event that everyone looks forward to,” says Tootsie’s proprietor Steve Smith. “We kicked it off at the Ryman with Kris Kristofferson, Terri Clark, Mel Tillis, and Jamey Johnson a few years back. Then Kid Rock and The Kentucky HeadHunters took the party to the street on Broadway. Last year Dierks Bentley, Randy Houser, and Troy Gentry kicked it up a bit, and then there is this year. The lineup is starting to come together!”
Tootsie’s is known to have been used as a “green room” by scores of artists who have performed at the nearby Ryman Auditorium, including Patsy Cline, Hank Williams and Ernest Tubb.
