Blake Shelton to Open Ol’ Red Entertainment Center In Nashville By 2018 – Blake Shelton is partnering with the company behind the Grand Ole Opry to bring a “major addition to the Music City entertainment landscape:” a new entertainment center called Ol’ Red, after his 2002 hit of the same name. The venture is described as a “lifestyle brand, not just a building.” Blake’s behind the project because as a Grand Ole Opry member, he’s a member of the “family” and, as Reed noted, he communicates with people outside the country music genre. The venue will feature “great food, great beverages and great retail,” and Blake’s persona will be central to everything. For example, the artists he discovers on The Voice will be able to play there, and there’ll be live band karaoke so you can fulfill your own Voice fantasies. A second Ol Red location will open in Blake’s hometown of Tishomingo, OK. That’ll be completed by October, while the Nashville center will be open April of 2018. – Read more at ABC News Radio
