My studio/home has been located downtown Nashville for the last 32 years. When I first moved here, “lower Broadway,” was nothing like it is today. It was desolate and not very appealing to visitors.
History may not be your favorite subject but I think you will enjoy listening to entertainment director, John Taylor, as he talks about Tootsies World Famous Orchid Lounge. From its humble beginnings to what it is today; as well as Tootsie’s contribution to the reconstruction of “lower Broadway.” Learn what made Tootsies so popular with “country greats” like Charlie Pride, Loretta Lynn, Waylon Jennings and Dolly Parton, and how it has managed to thrive in today’s country music scene.
