The downtown party will feature performances by Randy Houser, Jamey Johnson, Terri Clark and Montgomery Gentry‘s Troy Gentry, on the outdoor stage over the course of the day …with other special guests expected to appear as well.

“We kicked the Birthday Bash off years ago at the Ryman with Kris Kristofferson, Terri Clark, Mel Tillis and Jamey Johnson,” Tootsie’s proprietor Steve Smith said in a statement. “It’s become an annual event that everyone really looks forward to. We hope everyone will come out and help us celebrate our 55th birthday.”

Artists such as Kristofferson, Faron Young, Willie Nelson, Tom T. Hall, Hank Cochran, Tillis, Roger Miller, Webb Pierce, Waylon Jennings and Patsy Cline all got their start by performing at the lounge.
