Blake Shelton Bringing the Party to Tishomingo for Old Red Grand Opening
Oklahoma…where the wind blows, sweeping through the plains, and where Blake Shelton is headed to celebrate the grand opening of Ole Red Tishomingo.
The Oklahoma native inspired the new venue with his classic hit, “Ole Red,” which will feature entertainment space, retail openings and a restaurant for patrons to stop by and enjoy their time in the small Midwestern town. Shelton will host his own extravaganza to welcome the venture into town for the first-ever Ole Red location.
“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,” Shelton said recently. “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.”
Shelton will be joined by friends to host a show open to the public in town that will serve like a Grand Ole Opry celebration. Artists such as RaeLynn, Jeannie Seely, John Conlee and Ronnie Milsap will all be in attendance to hang out with the fans, as well as WSM’s Bill Cody as the co-emcee for the evening.
Although the big opening night holds all of those fun festivities, some lucky winners will be treated to their own private performance by Shelton the night before. All of the proceeds raised from the ticket sales of that show will be donated to J.C. Reaching Out, which helps out local families with the financial burdens of cancer treatments. Tickets have already gone on sale for Shelton’s show, which will be held on Friday, September 29, at Ole Red Tishomingo.
The official Old Red Tishomingo Grand Opening will take place block party style on Main Street in the heart of town on Saturday, September 30, at 7 p.m. CST, with more details found on the venue’s website.
