Stanley Cup entertains Billy Ray Cyrus, Keith Urban on trip to Nashville

Iconic trophy was VIP tip jar at Tootsie's in tour of Music City on Wednesday @NHLdotcom

The Stanley Cup has seen its share of broken hearts in 125 years, but on Wednesday it got to actually hear "Achy Breaky Heart."

The Cup spent Wednesday in Nashville and was the guest of honor at Tootsie's World Famous Orchid Lounge as country-music star Billy Ray Cyrus performed.

Cyrus played his 1992 hit for a sea of fans with the Cup on stage. The iconic trophy, which is exactly 100 years older than Cyrus' No. 1 song, even served as the greatest tip jar ever.

The Cup did more than just lounge around at Tootsie's, though. It visited a Nashville music studio, where Keith Urban, who was recently part of the parade of country music superstars that have sungthe national anthem for the Predators during their playoff run, was in awe of the trophy's presence.
