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.
Construction is underway on Blake’s new entertainment venue on Main Street in his hometown. Old Red Tishomingo, which is scheduled to open in fall 2017, will include a 4,700-square-foot restaurant and performance space as well as a 1,400-square-foot retail store.
“This song has been such a big record for me, and now it’s turned into this,” said Blake. “It’s pretty incredible . . . When you go in there, it’s going to be our lifestyle, our lifestyle here in Tishomingo.”
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.
