Travelers with layovers in Nashville were surprised recently when they were having a drink or two between flights at Blake Shelton’s Ole Red Nashville Airport Club, and Blake showed up to say hi and sing a song.

Blake came in wearing his casual tan jacket and a baseball hat. Shelton steps onto the small stage and thanks everyone for their support. He said it was the first time he has been to the airport Ole Red. He then sang “Ole Red,” which inspired the bar’s name. The bar has locations in downtown Nashville, Orlando, and Oklahoma.

The official Ole Red Instagram posted a video clip of the bossman’s visit. They wrote, “Best way to spend a layover in Nashville.” See that post here.
