Blake Shelton and Ryman Hospitality Properties have teamed up to transform Blake’s 2001 breakout hit, “Ol’ Red,” into two new venues in Nashville and his hometown of Tishomingo, Okla.
Blake will celebrate Ole Red Tishomingo’s grand opening with an Opry-style performance and block party on Sept. 30 in Tishomingo. RaeLynn, Jeannie Seely, John Conlee and Ronnie Milsap are scheduled to perform as Blake co-hosts the show with Bill Cody. The concert will be live streamed at 7 p.m. CT on Ole Red’s Facebook page. The new entertainment venue will include a 4,700-square-foot restaurant and performance space as well as a 1,400-square-foot retail store.
“For a song that meant so much to me to take this shape and come to life as Ole Red has is really mind-blowing,” said Blake. “Our community is in for a treat with the Opry bringing their famed broadcast to Tishomingo for this special show. It’s a proud day for us Oklahomans.”
In addition to his Tishomingo venue, Blake is set to open a second Ole Red location in Nashville in 2018. Ole Red Nashville at 300 Broadway will be a multi-level 26,000-square-foot entertainment venue, with a two-story bar and restaurant, retail area, performance space, dance floor and private VIP booths for small groups. The complex will also include a large, private event space and a 6,000-square-foot rooftop featuring an indoor/outdoor bar and restaurant with panoramic views of Lower Broadway.
