Owner description: Featuring 24 Veteran entertainers, Clay Cooper's Country Express gives you high energy live music, singing, dancing, and hysterical comedy - from George Jones to Hunter Hayes and from the Doobie Brothers to Bruno Mars! Don't miss New York's number one cowboy, trick roper, and gun-slinger, Johnny Lonestar; amazing dancers led by Clay's multi-talented wife, Tina Cooper; a seven-piece band; Branson's funnier than funny comedian, Matt Gumm; rising star Colt Cooper; and "Oklahoma's little sweetheart" Ezrah Noelle! Their unbelievable talent, hysterical comedy, and down-home personality bring our guests back time and time again. This cast goes all out, performing country, rock n roll, gospel and more! We definitely have something for everyone! Located in the Clay Cooper Theatre on Hwy 76 across from The Titanic Museum. Clay Cooper has been performing for Branson audiences since the age of 16, originally coming to Branson to perform with a kid's band known as the Texas Goldminors. Clay loved singing and playing bass, and loved meeting new people. What better place to do it than Branson! He continued performing in several Branson shows and now celebrates his 28th season performing. Clay hangs out after every show, greeting the audience and meeting new fans! In November and December, Clay Cooper's Country Express features an Ozark Mountain Christmas Celebration that has become a "MUST SEE" in Branson. The Clay-Goods Jambor-Eve: Celebrate New Year's Eve with Clay Cooper's Country Express and The Haygoods for a family-friendly, unforgettable, Blowout Party! Hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar will be available for those who might be interested. There will be party favors for everyone, and a MASSIVE balloon drop happens at the stroke of midnight! This year, Clay Cooper and his talented cast of 24 singers, dancers and musicians will be joined by the Haygoods for a memorable NEW YEARS EVE experience!

Clay Cooper has a great personality and stage presence. He is surrounded by some excellent musicians and several very talented people. We enjoyed the first half of the show very much. I found the the live audience taping and product pitching a little annoying.

This is the second time we have attended the Clay Cooper performance in Branson. We again enjoyed a tremendous show, and we were thoroughly entertained. We highly recommend the show presented at the Clay Cooper Theatre.

We had seen the regular show previously but their Christmas Show was equally excellent. Dancers, Johnny Lonestar, Matt Gum all excellent performers. Clay has great interaction with audience - laughed constantly.

Have seen this show twice, once last August and this December including their Christmas Show, great both times. Wife and I were both glad that we saw it again. Clay and the cast truly love people and to perform. You will not meet many more personable performers than Clay Cooper. Great other performers and dancers in the show, especially, Ezra... More

His interaction with the audience proved to be hilarious yet not offensive to anyone. So many great laughs! This is... More

We were greeted as soon as we entered and escorted to our seats. During the show, Clay Cooper, was so personable that you couldn't help but be impressed. He is a great singer and has some very talented people working for him. This was our favorite show that we saw in Branson. We went during the last week of November... More

Clay Copper is awesome every time we see him! His Christmas show was good. The first half was the best of the 2014 season and then the second half was all Christmas. Clay is great with crowd interaction and always entertaining! We will go again!
