Byrd's Eye View - "The Goods, Live Hard. Sell Hard."
Actor Jeremy Piven of HBO's hit show "Entourage" was in Nashville last night for the CMT red carpet premiere of his new film, The Goods: Live Hard. Sell Hard. The Emmy-winner then hit Lower Broadway for some serious honky-tonking at the famed Tootsie's Orchid Lounge where he partied with a Music City "entourage" that included country duo Halfway to Hazard (Tim McGraw's self-proclaimed favorite band, Chad Warrix and David Tolliver), and Jaron Lowenstein of Evan and Jaron. Piven even got on stage with Halfway to Hazard and Lowenstein and sat in on drums for a set of crowd-pleasing music that included classic covers such as ZZ Top's "Tush," Stevie Wonder's "Superstition," and The Eagles' "Take It Easy," among others. He then enjoyed the famous front booth with co-star Ed Helm and entourage and threw back shots and sipped on Grey Goose and soda. After the impromptu set, Piven, Warrix, Tolliver, and Lowenstein posed in a vintage triple black Lincoln Continental Convertible parked in front of the bar, belonging to Tootsie's owner Steve Smith. The vehicle is identical to Johnny Drama's ride from Entourage.
