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.

Great performers and music we went Sunday morning and it was wonderful. If you love gospel music you will love this show and the singers make jokes and have a great sense of humor. So glad we saw it before they move to another state.

I'm embarrassed to say that I was not familiar with the history of the Blackwoods family, as we attended the show as lovers of country and gospel music. We came away with a great appreciation of the family history. The singers are all very, very talented and very personable, spending time during intermission and after the show in the lobby... More

This is a great family story. No doubt there are some that are turned off by gospel music but they do a mix of music. I think there are those who think the gospel music is like singing songs in church. Well, I've got some news for you. There is that upbeat sound to everything they do. You have to... More
