Blake Shelton reinvigorating Tishomingo

But don't be bummed too much if you miss it, Blake says he plans on randomly popping into Ole Red (KTUL).

The stage has taken over Main Street, and much like the logo of the new bar and grill, Ole Red the hound dog is helping Tishomingo track down a new era of growth.

"I want this place to be fun," said Blake Shelton.

The country singer's records adorning the walls with an optimism that the rest of the town can benefit from his success.

"The only reason for me to do something like this in this town is to try and help out, and try to attract some tourism," Shelton said.

"I am so proud of him and what he's did for this town," said Deborah Black. We met her as she was handing out flyers to drum up business for another local restaurant.

"Fish Tales is a restaurant, it's all you can eat," she said.

"People are actually, not necessarily fighting, but they're scrambling to try to find Main Street property or something close to take advantage of the people that are coming to Tishomingo," said Kenny Power.

And Saturday between 10,000 and 15,000 people are expected to be coming to town for a free concert. Parking advice?

"There's no pre-designated parking. I would say when they get in the city limits, once they start finding a place to park, they better latch onto it," Power said.

But don't be bummed too much if you miss it, Blake says he plans on randomly popping into Ole Red.

"The only thing that's really in it for me is to have a place that any time I feel like it, I can come up here and pull up a stool and play some country music whenever I want to," he said.
