Description: Featuring 24 Veteran entertainers, Clay Cooper's Country Express gives you...
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 can sing and seems to enjoy audience participation. Matt Gumm is very talented and should have his own show. The wife and kids are High school talent level and the dancers are just painful to watch. Its OK if you've got young children with you or if its the only show that fits your time schedule, but with all... More

The galaxy of superstars on the stage in the Clay Cooper Express Show are amazing. They kept the audience ablazing with song and dance, plus comedy romance. The entertainers orbited around the stage like meteorites in the night. Clay is very comical and his memory is excellent when it comes to audience participants names. His wife, Tina, and the kids...

We were entertained with music, dancing, and comedy. Clay Cooper is the star of the show but his wife and children also perform with him. There was a 12 year old girl who also sang who had an excellent voice. the show was about 2 hours long with an intermission in between. Also Clay at times would interact with people... More

We enjoyed both the music as well as the humour in this show. It had been recommended to us by our friends/relatives and it didn't disappoint. Loved all the performers and the variety of talent.

As someone who has been in the entertainment business for 30 years, I can honestly say that Clay Cooper's Country Express is probably the best produced musical variety show in Branson. There is a little something for everyone in the family. Clay's interaction with the audience is one of the best parts of the show. We talked about his jokes... More

We went to Branson specifically to watch Joseph Hall. We loved his show!!! He had a great presence, I loved every song Elvis performed. Joseph Hall had a planned road trip (for all our Elvis roadies) and for one who has never done a road Trip I was blown away how much fun Dann and I had. They had everything... More

We are not country music fans, but this was a high energy performance with a little something for everyone. The involvement with the audience was special. We still remember the good natured joking with a man from Minnesota and the birthday celebration with a 90 year old man. Good banter and Clay had an excellent memory for names and specifics....

A very enjoyable, fun evening with Clay Cooper. Fourth time to Branson (from Florida) and I'm sorry I didn't see his show before. Excellent entertainer and great interaction with the audience. His wife, Tina, and two sons add a lot to the show. Other acts are also very good. I would put his show at the top of your list.

Clay, his wife Tina, their family and long time collegues gave a great performance. The interaction with the attendees was just funnier than all get out. Well worth the seeing - you won't be disappointed.
