TISHOMINGO, Okla. (KXII) - Country music star Luke Bryan stopped by Texoma Thursday for the grand opening of an expansion to Ole Red.

Crowds lined up outside Ole Red to experience the new music hall and events venue.

What once was a public park and Bakers Mercantile is now The Doghouse at Ole Red Tishomingo, where construction began a few months ago.

On Thursday, Luke Bryan kicked off the sold-out grand opening, which will be celebrated through Sunday.

Judy Vaughn traveled from Oklahoma City to see Bryan, who performed Thursday, and Blake Shelton, who performs Friday night.

She, along with many other, waited nearly two hours to get into The Doghouse, where tickets were sold for $250 per person.

Ticket sales will benefit the Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Foundation.
