Blake Shelton visited Orlando on Thursday to christen his new restaurant in Icon Park with a performance.
The country star and long-time judge on The Voice was on hand to celebrate his fourth Ole Red restaurant along International Drive. The sprawling, Southern restaurant is mere steps from the attraction's massive Ferris wheel, covering two floors and taking up 17,000 square feet.
The visit was Shelton's first since the restaurant opened last summer, to celebrate the delayed "grand opening." He noted that he was excited about the restaurant, as it was the first that his company had a hand in building from the ground up.

After the chat, Shelton performed a medley of hits for the small, invite-only crowd. Obviously, Shelton made time to include "Ol' Red," his 2001 track that gives the restaurant its name.
