Blake Shelton’s Ole Red Nashville is open & Brad Paisley will be a judge on The Gong Show

Blake Shelton’s Ole Red Nashville had its soft open this week and the grand opening is during the CMA Fest. The downstairs restaurant will have Southern food with a twist like catfish corndogs and a pulled BBQ mushroom sandwich. The Lookout on the rooftop will offer small plates or tapas with things like Nashville hot calamari and a fresh seafood bank.  

Brad Paisley will be on the rotating panel of judges when The Gong Show returns this summer. Actor Mike Myers will host and it debuts June 21 on ABC.  

Keith Urban performs tonight on Late Night with Seth Myers. As for his new album ‘Graffiti U’ he recorded it at his home studio that has huge windows. Keith says he needs the light and really feeds on it. He does the majority of his recording in the morning as Keith says that’s when he’s most creative.  

Dierks Bentley’s kinda nervous about his album out June 8 because it’s part bluegrass and he hopes fans like that. He spent several hours a day before shows hanging out with fans and hearing their stories and some of them turned into tunes on the record.  

Finally - Eric Church turns 41 today.
