    "Love Shack is a perfect fit for this town," he said.

    He said he's proud of the newest location because the gigantic patio can be heated and cooled. The laid-back atmosphere will embrace what Denton is known for.

    "It really allows us to dig in deep to the Denton music scene," Love said. "I am a big live music person."

    This time around, Love sought feedback from his biggest fans. He tweeted for patrons to test out his food before opening day.

    "It worked out great," he said. "People showed up. It was amazing. I've got some great followers out there, I guess."

    The Love Shack in Denton will be open from lunch through dinner with live music every night.
