Blake Shelton read everyone’s minds when he posted a video on Twitter, saying, “Thank God this year is finally winding down a little bit.”

In the video, Shelton gave a special shoutout to all his Ole’ Red employees. Without the employees, Shelton says, they couldn’t have made it through 2020.

Blake Shelton’s Thanksgiving Message to Ole Red Employees

Speaking directly to them, he said, “I just wanted to take a second and tell you guys, thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. You guys are making sure that you’re coming in every day and you’re putting our guests first, and we couldn’t have made it through this year without you guys out there.”

Besides being a Grammy-winning country music singer, Blake Shelton’s also a successful businessman. He owns a franchise of restaurants and entertainment venues called Ole Red. In Sept 2017, the first Ole Red opened in his hometown of Tishomingo, OK. One year later, in March of 2018, a second location opened in Nashville. In addition, he has two other locations in Gatlinburg and Orlando.

He continued showing his appreciation for his Ole Red family.

“I just wanted to say a special thank you to all of our employees, at no matter what level, at all the Ole Reds’, Nashville, Tishomingo, Gatlinburg, Orlando, you guys have just made this year possible. We’re getting through it and not a lot of places can say that,” he said.

Shelton was full of gratitude in the video. In particular, he added that he saw the employees’ commitment despite the restaurant industry’s hit due to the coronavirus.

“It’s a testament to your commitment, and we’re committed to you guys too. Here’s to next year, and hopefully, it’s a do-over.”

Shelton rejoiced by finishing the video on a positive note.

“Cheers, we made the best of it, and thank you for that.”
