Nashville’s legendary watering hole, Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, celebrated its 59th birthday on Oct. 9 with a free outdoor show that featured performance by Brantley Gilbert, Randy Houser, Jamey Johnson, Lee Brice, Terri Clark and more—and, by “more,” we mean golfer John Daly and actor Johnny Galecki.

Over the years, Tootsie’s has served as a songwriting refuge for a bevy of maverick tunesmiths like Willie Nelson, Harlan Howard, Roger Miller and Kris Kristofferson.

You may even see an impromptu performance from an artist like Keith Urban, Kid Rock, Dierks Bentley or Hank Williams, Jr.
