Country music superstar Blake Shelton recently met up with Kellie Pickler and Ben Aaron to talk about his Ole Red restaurants while sitting in one located in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.

The Ole Red chain is three deep, soon to be four: Other than Gatlinburg there are Ole Reds in Nashville and in Tishomingo, Oklahoma. (Fans of Shelton know Oklahoma is his true stomping ground.) The fourth will open in 2020 in Orlando, Florida.

The Ole Red menus are hearty, with southern style options such as chili, smoked wings, skillet cornbread, biscuits, burgers, chicken, meatfloaf, pot pie and more. There's even a starter called "redneck nachos" complete with kettle chips and barbeque sauce.

During the "Pickler & Ben" interview, the hosts gave Shelton some gifts, including a box of Lucky Charms cereal, and ... a specially scented surprise.
