Blake Shelton and Ryman Hospitality Properties unveiled plans for a new Ole Red location in the Nashville International Airport (BNA). The new location is expected to open in early 2022.
The 5,500-square-foot Ole Red BNA will join a variety of new dining and shopping options at BNA, which is undergoing a $1.4 billion expansion plan designed to accommodate over 23 million passengers by 2023.
The planned $4.5 million project is scheduled for the C Terminal and will be the largest single operation with 190 seats, concert-quality acoustics and the largest stage in the airport. Ryman Hospitality Properties also plans to offer daily live music alongside Ole Red menu favorites and location-specific specialties, including breakfast items.
“We have long believed in the bold vision set forth by the Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority for their expansion, which is designed to accommodate Nashville’s surging tourism demand,” says Colin Reed, chairman and CEO of Ryman Hospitality Properties. “We believe having an Ole Red location in this redesigned space is an extraordinary billboard opportunity for the Ole Red brand and all of what downtown Nashville has to offer. We look forward to working alongside Fraport USA to bring Ole Red to the airport.”
Shelton adds, “Folks from around the world come to Nashville lookin’ to have a good time and hear some of the best live music around, and now you can make it double with the Nashville airport venue! I’m excited to give visitors the best fun, food and music like only Ole Red can provide while they wait for their flight.”
Ole Red BNA will join four existing locations in Orlando, Florida; Tishomingo, Oklahoma; Nashville, Tennessee; and Gatlinburg, Tennessee.
