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!

We have been to this show before and went back again because it is so good. Clay is very good with the audience with talking with the audience and having with the audience. The singers and the dancers are very good also. We will go back again.

We made late arrangements for a show in Branson and ended up taking the Clay Cooper Theater. We were definitely not disappointed. The talent and presentation were superb. There was a lot of ad-lib comedy. Of particular interest was a 12 year old girl singer who was incredible, including her yodeling. Cooper's 11 year son was also very good. There... More

We had never been to The Clay Cooper show and decided to take a chance on the advice of the tourism guide..He was right on point..a wonderful Christian oriented show. He kept us laughing the entire show. It was high energy and most enjoyable..will definitely visit again.

Clay Cooper and his group of entertainers, including Mark Gumm provided a fun evening. Very personable, involving the audience in some running gags. Lots of variety- classic country, spoofs of famous entertainers, gospel, and ended with an original patriotic number written by Clay's wife Linda. Just the right amount of comedy so that it wasn't too slap stick. Clay's 11... More

Great Performer - Great Show!! Truthfully I was a bit surprised by how much both myself and my husband enjoyed this show! Different entertainers throughout the night who were professional level singers and dancers! Clay comes out into the audience and encourages audience participation which really adds to the entertainment factor. Very funny, had my eyes watering more than once!... More

This theater has the wonderfully entertaining Clay Cooper Show, The Haygoods, Mel Tillis and more. Always comfortable seats and friendly box office, concession and theater personnel. Most of the entertainers come out and personally thank each and every person after their shows. You can tell they value and appreciate each and every guest.
