Tootsie's World-Famous Orchid Lounge is celebrating a birthday Wednesday and it’s going to impact traffic in downtown Nashville. 

Hundreds of people are expected to attend a free street party for Tootsie's Birthday Bash as the iconic honky-tonk turns 58. 

Broadway traffic will be diverted beginning Wednesday morning and will be closed between 4th and 5th Avenue. The closure remains in effect until 5 a.m. Thursday. 

The Country Music party for Tootsie's happens every year on the lounge's birthday.

Some of the big names performing today, include platinum-selling powerhouse Randy Houser, international superstar Kid Rock and country hitmaker Jake Owen.

The music starts at noon and goes until midnight. 

Crosswalks on both ends of the event are going to be open for pedestrian traffic during all of the shows. 

This year’s party is expected to be bigger and better than last year. The honky-tonk says don't be surprised if a couple big names make guest appearances.
