Blake Shelton sets his sights on Orlando for his fourth Ole Red location

ABC/Mark LevineBlake Shelton’s Ole Red empire continues to grow, as he plans a new location in Orlando, Florida.

Blake’s fourth bar, restaurant and music venue will occupy 15,000 square feet over two levels at the ICON Orlando 360 development. Construction is set to begin next year, with opening targeted for spring of 2020.

The “Turnin’ Me On” hitmaker and his partner, Ryman Hospitality Properties, expect to spend $15 million to make it happen.

“We’ve brought Ole Red to some of my favorite places,” Blake says, “and I’m excited to have another spot for country music fans to have fun with their friends and family.”

“I think it’s impossible to visit Orlando and not have a good time,” he adds, “and that’s why I know Ole Red is going to fit right in.”

The original Ole Red is in Blake’s hometown of Tishomingo, Oklahoma. The first Tennessee location opened in Nashville earlier this year, with one set to follow in Gatlinburg next spring.
