I was not familiar with the Blackwood Family prior to visiting the Pigeon Forge area. They are a Christian family that have been singing gospel and country music for 80 years. At the end of the show, there was a patriotic selection of songs. The love between the performers is evident. The show will be moving to Branson in 2016.

One of several shows we saw in Pigeon Forge. This, as stated, is a morning run. Show was enjoyable in what is advertised as their last season in Pigeon Forge. They are moving to Branson next year. Mixes old and new, some pop, country and Christian music as well as a tribute to the US. Included is a heartwarming personal... More

We bought tickets as part of a combo with the Hatfields and McCoys show so we only paid $14.95 pp which was a real bargain as far as we were considered. This show is top notch!! They are known for their gospel music so it should be pretty obvious that they will be singing gospel but they sing other songs... More

This is a wonderful show with music from past, country, uplifting Christian music and patriotic. This is a group with great harmony and warmth. They have been doing this for many years very successfully. A great morning show.

Starting the day with the 10:00 Blackwoods Morning Variety Show was very enjoyable for our family. We enjoy gospel and country music so the show was a good match for us. I will say that you should not choose this show unless you understand that you will hear gospel music, be asked to buy CDs, and hear Christian testimonies. If... More

Though we have come to Pigeon Forge for years, this was our first stop at the Blackwood Morning Variety Show. Boy, have we been missing a treat! The performers are personable and genuine, greeting patrons before, during, and after the show. Donna is a terrific storyteller, and her poignant and courageous battle with cancer and subsequent triumph through God's grace... More

This was a very polished performance with amazing harmonies and beautiful gospel lyrics. If you like gospel you will love this show.

I have to say this was more than a show. The music, history, comedy and testimony is so heartfelt that you feel like you have known the Blackwood Family for years before you leave. Excellent!!!

Got it as a combo with Smoky Mountain Opry. Disappointed they didn't serve breakfast, because several ads we saw around town (even in our hotel) said they had breakfast. Lots of costume changes. They probably sang over 20 songs. We were among the youngest in the theatre and we are in our early 30s. Think I saw four kids of... More
