About Tootsieâ€™s Orchid Lounge:
Tootsieâ€™s Orchid Lounge has operated across the alley from the Ryman almost continuously since 1960. Its proprietor from 1960 to 1978, Hattie Louise â€œTootsieâ€ Bess, bought the lounge called â€œMomâ€™sâ€ and named it for herself. According to tradition, a painter mistakenly painted the exterior orchid purple. The color was never changed and became Tootsieâ€™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 â€œTootsieâ€™s Wall of Fame.â€
Today, Tootsieâ€™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, Jamey Johnson, Dierks Bentley, and Hank Williams, Jr. are among the artists who have recently performed there.
