NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

An iconic Nashville business is taking over part of Lower Broadway on Tuesday to celebrate a big anniversary.

Tootsie's, the world-famous honky-tonk, is celebrating its 57th birthday and plans to do it in style.

Broadway will be shut down between 4th and 5th avenues for a day-long street party.

Cole Swindell will be the headliner at Tuesday night's show. There will also be performances from country music artists, including Billy Ray Cyrus, Terri Clark and Trick Pony. Tootsie's also promises at least one surprise guest.

The Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest will begin at 3 p.m. The top male and female finishers will compete in the international hot dog eating contest in New York next year.

The Nashville Predators will also hold their annual Gold Walk where players greet fans and walk across the stage at Tootsie's before heading into Bridgestone Arena for their home opener.

Gates opened at 11 a.m. for the free birthday bash, and the live music started at 11:30 a.m. Click here for more information.
