Construction is underway on Blake Shelton’s hometown entertainment venue. Ole Red Tishomingo is scheduled to open this fall. It will include 47-hundred-square-feet of restaurant space and performance space, as well as a 14-hundred-square-foot retail store. The venue is designed to embody the spirit of Shelton’s hit song, “Ol’ Red.” Shelton is teaming up with Ryman Hospitality Properties for the project. He says, “This song has been such a big record for me. And now it’s turned into this. It’s pretty incredible. When you go in there, it’s going to be our lifestyle, our lifestyle here in Tishomingo.” A second Ole Red location will open in Nashville in 2018.
