Country singer Mark Chestnutt knows what he'll be doing between performances this weekend at the Grand Ole Opry.

"You can bet I'll be following a classic Opry tradition: I'm heading across the alley to Tootsie's," he said.

Tootsie's is a bar near the Ryman Auditorium where Opry stars have hung out through the years. The Opry shows were held at the Ryman from 1943 until 1974, when they moved to the current location.

Performances are being held at Ryman while renovations are done to the normal venue.
