Blake Shelton said, “We’ve brought Ole Red to some of my favorite places, 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, and that’s why I know Ole Red is going to fit right in.”
It's been more than a year since it was announced that Ole Red would become one of ICON Park's many restaurant choices. According to Ryman Hospitality Properties, Ole Red Orlando will bring the best of southern food, hospitality and live country music to the tourist area.
