Blake Shelton is ready to beat the winter blues and soak up a little spring break when his third restaurant with Ryman Hospitality opens. Ole Red Gatlinburg will celebrate a March 2019 grand opening with a week-long concert celebration.

“Gatlinburg has always been a place where I’ve had a good time, and it’s just awesome for me to get to be a part of this community through Ole Red,” said Shelton in a press release. “I can’t wait to get my band down there to play – it’s going to be an amazing night.”

The fun runs March 11 through 17 with daily live music beginning at 11:30 a.m. from the Ole Red Stage. The restaurant and live music venue will showcase dishes from their made-from-scratch menu, including the “Champagne of Fried Chicken,” and Gatlinburg-only specialties like the “Ober Gatlin-burger.” The menu will also feature Blake-approved cocktails and local beers.

Fans hoping to see Shelton during the festivities have a chance to win the ultimate prize: a chance to see him and The Swon Brothers during a private concert on March 13. Those hoping to test their luck can enter now through February 15 via https://olered.com/gatlinburg/sweepstakes/grand-opening-sweepstakes/, by following Ole Red Gatlinburg on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram or by listening to their local radio stations.

A limited number of tickets will also be available for sale with proceeds going towards supporting music education. They will directly benefit the Gatlinburg-Pittman High School Music Program. Ryman Hospitality Properties Foundation will match all of the proceeds from an online auction up to $25,000.
