TISHOMINGO, Okla. – Residents in one Oklahoma town were stunned when a group of celebrities decided to stop in for a bite to eat at a local restaurant.
After the Pink Pistol closed in Tishomingo, many people wondered what would happen to the once-popular boutique.
Shortly after news of the store’s closure spread, Oklahoma native Blake Shelton revealed he purchased the property and had “a plan brewing.”
“As a resident of Tishomingo, I am very sorry that the Pink Pistol has decided to move its operations out of the area,” Shelton said in a statement to E! News. “We all as a community appreciate everything it has done for our town. As for the actual properties left behind…I was offered the opportunity to buy them and I have a plan brewing.”
As it turns out, Shelton turned the property into a restaurant and bar named after one of his hit songs.
“For me, it’s as simple as, this is my home,” said Shelton told News 4.
The ‘Ole Red’ restaurant and bar opened in September and has been a hit ever since.
The new restaurant also has a bit of star power.
On Wednesday, Bobbie LaFevers and her friends were celebrating a birthday at 'Ole Red' when three unexpected visitors came in the doors.
"In walked Paul Ryan first, Speaker of the House, and then double duty- we got to see Blake Shelton walk in, him and Gwen," LaFevers told KXII.
It's something he told KFOR he hoped would happen at his restaurant.
“That’s my dream. That’s my vision,” said Shelton. “Somebody coming in here one day from wherever, stopping in to get a drink and I happen to be sitting here playing my guitar, singing some music.”
