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!

We had never been to Branson, and tried to decide which show to see. After talking to peole and reading reviews, we decided on Clay Cooper's Show. Great show, talented musicians, impressionist terrific, and yodeler - a 12 year old - was amazing. Don't hesitate to buy these tickets - not a bad seat in the house.

We enjoyed the Clay Cooper Show. Comedian Matt Gumm has some great new skits. Johnny Lonestar is interesting to watch. The choreography for the show is very good. Clay is a wonderful singer.

The variety of music, the impersonations of Michael Jackson, Tom Jones, Joe Cocker was amazing. The child singer was a superstar! Female singer was phenomenal! We loved the show!

The quality of the show was quite impressive. My wife and I loved the choices of music, the comedy was funny and family friendly and the other acts brought some very good talent to the stage. Of the shows we have seen in Branson, it is near the top of our list and would easily see again on another trip.... More

Loved it from beginning to end. Johnny Lone-star was a highlight. You just don't see cowboy stuff like that any more. The music, Singing, Dancing, Impressions were all a delight. Will be back and advise my friends to go as well.

My wife says Clay Cooper is a sweetheart and she love's his country singing. Great family show including wife and two young boys. Key boards payer had fabulous voice as did they all. Mike Gumm added some humor the show and was a talent in his own right.

DO NOT MISS THS SHOW. The best show in Branson. Cooper has personality plus and his interaction with the audience was so funny. We laughed so much our faces hurt and clapped through the whole show. Hated to see it end. His cast is superb. Can't wait for next visit.
