A little party never killed nobody, especially when it’s thrown by Blake Shelton to introduce Music City to his new restaurant and bar called Ole Red Nashville.
Months after the singer announced he would join the handful of country stars to embark on a hospitality endeavor on the iconic Broadway area, the time has finally come for Ole Red Nashville to open its doors to anyone and everyone.
The celebrations will commence on June 6, with a special Blake Shelton and Friends show rocking out the venue right after the 2018 CMT Music Awards conclude. Later throughout the weekend, food items and jazzy cocktails will be offered to patrons who stop by to check out the joint. For Shelton, it’s just another way to express his love for the city and for the lengths of his career.
“Lower Broadway is the centerpiece of Nashville. There’s so much great music and fun going on down there all the time and it’s exciting to now be a part of it – it’s a dream come true,” said Shelton in a press release about the establishment.
Shelton helped set up the first Ole Red property in his hometown of Tishomingo, Oklahoma, which got word buzzing about what fun it would be for the Voice coach to open up shop right in Music City. After evaluating the prospects and setting things into motion, the team between Shelton and the Ryman Hospitality group thought of no better way to invite customers in than to welcome everyone during the biggest country music festival of the year.
“Ole Red is an experience unlike anywhere else on Broadway – from the live entertainment quality to the food, drinks, décor and retail,” said Colin Reed, Ryman Hospitality Properties Chairman and CEO. “We are excited to celebrate its grand opening with the thousands of fans and visitors that join us in Nashville for one of the most exciting weeks of the year, CMA Fest.”
Ole Red Nashville will officially open up on June 6 to the public, with festivities running through June 10 in line with the CMA Music Festival madness.
