This classic show has been a local and tourist favorite for years. The show is always entertaining with a high energy level. The cast is the most talented around and they never fail to give an outstanding performance. My favorite is the Good Vibrations show and Christmas show.

All that, the cloggers, clog all the way. It is amazing what these guys can do with their fee. For that reason only I give them 4 stars. The start is a little strange. The magician is good, but don't expect a lot, since he has to do things within a short period of time. The laser show is not... More

Wife, father in law and I went to the TCO show at the Carolina Opry. Talent was incredible. The Cloggers "All that" from America's Got Talent were on the stage. The singing, dancing, music and everything else was excellent. Highly recommend. The country music influence appealed to us very much.

Extremely talented musicians in every way! The singers did a fabulous job as soloists and blended well when they sang together. The band was outstanding as well. The band members could play numerous instruments-professionals in every way. The comedy routines were also excellent. We had family members from age 6 to 68 and we ALL thoroughly enjoyed every part.

Went for dinner befor the show and didn't think it would be much.. The show was well coordinated and the talent great. Sitting there watching the show brought back a lot of memories from the past. Music and comedy sketches was good and the "all that" guys topping off the entertainment with great dancing. This I'd good for the older... More

This was ok. The performers did a good job but overall it did not knock my socks off. I probably would not return.

This was my second show I've seen at the Carolina Opry, I also saw the Christmas show a few years ago. The singers were great, tap dancers were great, comedy and beautiful outfits. Alot of the music was recent and was not just country music, which I enjoyed.

I've been to this show several times and was a little shocked to find out most of the comedy was about bashing President Obama! I just don't remember them making fun of any president in years past. Especially one of the GOP variety. Most of the music is from the country jandra with religious over tones. So if you aren't... More
