The bright lights of downtown Nashville are only getting brighter as the neon sign displayed at the historic purple landmark of Tootsie's Orchid Lounge was unveiled recently. Steve Smith, proprietor of the Tootsie's Orchid Lounge, along with Terri Clark, the Roys, T.G. Sheppard, Jett Williams, Kelly Lang and David Ball unveiled the newly redesigned neon alley sign on the back side of the legendary honky tonk.
“We are officially taking back the alley and renaming it Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge alley,” says Steve Smith. “The neon sign we have unveiled today is the original sign that hung for nearly 60 years, reminding the Opry stars where to come for a good time after their Opry performance. And those stars and more are still coming!”
