Blake Shelton Tours Construction at Ole Red Gatlinburg in Preparation of Spring 2019 Opening

Blake Shelton visited Gatlinburg, Tenn., on Sept 18 to tour the construction site of his upcoming restaurant, Ole Red Gatlinburg.

Slated for completion by spring 2019, Ole Red Gatlinburg will be a multi-level, 13,500-square-foot entertainment venue with a two-story bar and restaurant, retail area, performance space, dance floor and exterior terrace.

“It works perfectly with who I am as an artist, my persona and what I want people to take away at the end of the day,” said Blake during a press conference in Gatlinburg. “I love country music, I love entertainment and I love to a good time.”

Gatlinburg is the third Ole Red location, following the first in Blake’s adopted Oklahoma hometown of Tishomingo (September 2017) and a second in Nashville (May 2018). Blake recently announced plans for a fourth location coming to Orlando, Fla., in 2020.
