Blake Shelton and Ryman Hospitality Properties, Inc. donated $50,000 of ticket sales from this weekend’s concerts at Ole Red, Shelton’s restaurant, live music venue and retail space in Tishomingo, Oklahoma, to the City of Tishomingo. The money will stay in the community and benefit Pennington Park, including improvements to the current splash pad and the addition of water features.
“It’s always fun to play your hometown and now that we have Ole Red in Tishomingo, we can pop up and play anytime,” says Shelton. “We played a lot of music, had fun and raised money for Pennington Park! Now that’s a good time!”
Pennington Creek Park in Tishomingo, Oklahoma provides hookups for overnight RV and primitive camping, boat ramp access, designated walking trails, fishing and a swimming hole on its 15 acres that are conveniently located close to the historic Chickasaw Nation Capitol Museum and Genealogical Center.
The park is open May to September. The city hopes to have the improvements completed by the opening of the 2018’s park season.
