The Honky Tonk Nights Keychain
For those of us that live in or near Nashville, Tennessee, Honky Tonkin' is well-used phrase. But, if you weren’t born and raised in a musical hotbed like Nashville, “honky-tonk” can be a head-scratcher. To further complicate matters, some say the phrase has two meanings.
The term is used most often to describe a bar featuring live country music. These establishments typically are located on Lower Broadway in downtown Nashville. Their walls are covered in headshots of famous and not-so-famous musicians, the wooden floors fill-up with folks dancing the night away, the beers are always cold, and the music most certainly is good. The artists to take the stage at these establishments are all chasing a dream.
It’s been this way since the days of Patsy Cline. One of Nashville's first honky-tonks, Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, was well positioned to serve as the Ryman's unofficial greenroom because it shares an alleyway with the Mother Church of Country Music. When the Ryman played host to the Grand Ole Opry, performers often entered through the backdoor of Tootsie’s, where they could cut loose and play a few tunes to warm up for their Opry set.
