Ole Red currently features two locations, one in Tishomingo, Oklahoma and the other in Nashville, Tennessee. According to the restaurant’s website, Ole Red will also be heading to Gatlinburg, Tennessee and Orlando, Florida.
The venues feature live music, authentic southern cuisine, and of course The Voice viewing parties during filming season. And in true Shelton style, the drink menu features items like B.S. Bloody Mary and Sex on Some Beach.
People’s Sexiest Man Alive

He joked, “I’ve been ugly my whole life. If I can be sexy for a year, I’m taking it!” Girlfriend Gwen Stefani jumped in on the fun as well, stating in 2018 that she felt he only got sexier after he gave up his title.
