In the news release, the company said Ole Red is hiring a full range of restaurant, bar and retail positions -- including servers, hosts and hostesses, bartenders, line cooks and security.

All candidates are asked to apply in advance of the job fair. You can find more information on openings at the company's website here. 

Ole Red is also holding a contest to win a trip for two to Gatlinburg for the grand opening, which includes VIP admission, accommodations at Margaritaville Resort Gatlinburg,  and paid passes to a variety of Gatlinburg attractions such as Anakeesta, Ober Gatlinburg, and Ripley's attractions. 

The Gatlinburg location is one of three Ole Red locations. Shelton's original location opened in his hometown of Tishomingo, Ok. in 2017, and a second location  was opening off Broadway in downtown Nashville in 2018.

NBC's The Voice starts Shelton and Gwen Stefani spent the day in East Tennessee last week to check out the site -- which is across from Anakeesta. 

"From ziplining to enjoying our food at the Cliff Top Grill & Bar they were able to experience it all in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains," the post by Anakeesta said.

Stefani also shared a video of Dolly Parton's Stampede on her Instagram story.
