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

We saw this show the last time we were in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Our family is planning to take another trip to Pigeon Forge and we will DEFINITELY be taking our adult children to see this wonderful show - the breakfast is great too!

We enjoyed this Farewell Season of the Blackwood show. They are heading to Branson next year. Great singers of Gospel music. We were especially touched by Donna Blackwood's testimony of the healing in her life. A good interaction between the performers and so talented. Loved the glitz of the costumes.

A friend and myself went to the show we loved it. I hate to know this will be the very last year for the blackwoods but I do understand that they would like to be closer to the grand kids. I will see y'all again for Christmas and I do wish RW and Donna all the best in the years... More

Loved the presentation of old time gospel and other types of old music. The singers were so personal and interacted with the crowd, even talked in the foyer with everyone during the break! Sorry to see this group leave Pigeon Forge!

If you enjoy great gospel music, you'll undoubtedly enjoy this show. The Blackwoods are very comfortable entertaining in a 'down home' way. Since they are celebrating the 80th anniversary of the Blackwoods, several other country artists offer their congratulations via video as well.
