“We kicked the Birthday Bash off years ago at the Ryman with Kris Kristofferson, Terri Clark, Mel Tillis and Jamey Johnson,” says Tootsie’s proprietor Steve Smith. “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!”
