Blake Shelton Donates $50,000 to the City of Tishomingo, Oklahoma

After a weekend of pop-up shows at Ole Red in Tishomingo, Okla., Blake Shelton and Ryman Hospitality Properties donated $50,000 to Blake’s hometown.

The money will benefit Pennington Park, which provides RV hookups, camping, boat ramp access, walking trails, fishing and a swimming hole on its 15 acres. The donation will help fund improvements to the current splash pad and the addition of water features.

“It’s always fun to play your hometown and now that we have Ole Red in Tishomingo, we can pop up and play anytime,” says Blake. “We played a lot of music, had fun and raised money for Pennington Park. Now that’s a good time!”

Blake opened Ole Red Tishomingo—a restaurant, live-music venue and retail space—in 2017. Ole Red Nashville is slated to open in 2018.
