Chuck Wicks & Terri Clark Set to Play Tootsies’ Birthday Bash

Chuck Wicks

Music City’s legendary honky-tonk Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge will celebrate its 54th Birthday in downtown Nashville on November 12th with a Broadway street-party hosted by America’s Morning Show host Blair Garner from NASH-FM. As part of the celebration, Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge will host entertainment on the outdoor Broadway stage throughout the day. The Wednesday event will include performances by Terri Clark, Chuck Wicks, Trick Pony and Darryl Worley, with more exciting artist announcements coming soon.

“The Tootsie’s Birthday Bash has become an annual event that everyone looks forward to,” says Tootsie’s proprietor Steve Smith. “We kicked it off at the Ryman with Kris Kristofferson, Terri Clark, Mel Tillis, and Jamey Johnson a few years back. Then Kid Rock and The Kentucky HeadHunters took the party to the street on Broadway. We then had Dierks Bentley, Randy Houser and Troy Gentry kicked it up a bit, and then there is this year. The lineup is starting to come together!”

Tootsie’s is known to have been used as a “green room” to some of the greatest Opry stars including Patsy Cline, Hank Williams and Ernest Tubb. “Tootsies is where the stars would come to wet their whistles and pick their guitars,” adds Smith.

Craig Campbell, Chuck Wicks, and Jana Kramer Join Forces to Raise Money for Charity

The 17th annual Buds ‘N’ Suds benefit for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America was held in Nashville, and included performances from up-and-coming talent as well as established artists, and a silent auction featuring autographed items from legends like Garth Brooks and Paul McCartney.

Hosted by Blair Garner of America’s Morning Show, the show began with acoustic performances by Kaleigh Bullard (Miss Nashville), the Mann Sisters, and Emi Sunshine, a dynamite young girl with a personality as big as her vocals.

Craig Campbell kicked off the full band portion of the show with a cover of the Brooks & Dunn hit “Play Something Country.” His 40-minute set was a high-energy honkytonk experience that included his hits “Family Man” and “Keep Those Kisses Comin,” as well as a surprise cover of “Royals” by Lorde. He is currently working on finalizing the details of a new record deal, and is excited about the direction of his future.

“Upward! I haven’t had a number one yet, so that’s first and foremost for me,” said Campbell, when talking about his goals for working with a new team.

Chuck Wicks continued to keep the crowd on their feet with his hits “All I Ever Wanted” and his brand new single, “Saturday Afternoon.”

“I wrote it with two guys that are on fire, Chris Tompkins and Rodney Clawson. I wrote this song from a fun place, and when I would sing it live, the immediate reaction from it sparked ‘maybe people are going to react to this pretty positively’ and hopefully at the radio level it does the same thing,” said Wicks.

The ladies in the crowd swooned over Wicks as he sang sultry songs like “Hold That Thought,” which was voted as one of the top 20 hottest music videos by CMT. Wicks is currently in the studio wrapping up a new album and hopes to release it in the coming months.

Jana Kramer ended the night with a fun set of her music, including new songs that will be on an upcoming album.

“A lot of the songs on this new album are songs that I’ve written and co-written a lot more than the first album. I’ve definitely stepped up and let my life shine through these songs.”

Her current single, “Love,” represents a multitude of emotions, not just romantic love.

“The song is about love in general, the love that’s out there, not just relationships; for me, that’s in paying it forward and giving back,” said Kramer.

While none of the performers have been directly impacted by Crohn’s disease or colitis, they all agreed that it’s a cause worth supporting, and that their purpose as entertainers is not only to perform, but to give back to the community at any chance they get.

“This is what we were put here to do. We get out and play music and sing for fun, but when it comes down to it, the only reason we have our celebrity status is to do things like this,” said Craig Campbell.
