One of the Sooner state’s newest attractions is straight out of Blake Shelton’s 2001 hit song “Ol’ Red.”

The country singer opened the restaurant and bar of the same name (spelled Ole Red, though) last month in his hometown of Tishomingo, and he plans to open a second location in Nashville in 2018.

The venue on Main Street is trimmed in red and white and features an image of a hound dog. Inside is a 4,700-square-foot restaurant and live music area and a 1,400-square-foot retail space.

“Experiencing the second celebrity-based business opening in a year, communities in Oklahoma are enjoying the increased traffic to their cities and towns,” says Todd Stallbaumer, consumer and trade marketing director with Oklahoma Tourism & Recreation Department. “Pawhuska, home of Ree Drummond’s Mercantile, is seeing thousands of new visitors every week, and Ole Red is gearing up for massive crowds to enjoy Blake Shelton’s latest endeavor.”

The menu at Ole Red restaurant includes items that are a little different, like hot chicken and waffles and Lucky Charms cookies.
