Great show, with very talented singers and musicians. Very good music choices that highlights the talent of each person in the show. Comedy is very good without being dumb. I would recommend this show to be added to your Branson must see.

Oh my goodness they are good, we actually went as a family with friends to both of their shows today, the 2PM Gospel Show, and the 8PM Country Show, and it was a GREAT day, will definately want to see them in the future.

It was not really for me, the sound seemed to need work. One of the speakers gave a short talk about Jesus, some don't like it, but I think we should never be afraid to share the good news and hope that someone can come...More
