This is a more modernized show of newer country tunes. The sound on the lead guitar solos was non-existent so we couldn't that detracted from the whole experience. The singers were ok. Enjoyed the Comedian in the Pre-Show better than Hargus in the main show.

This was a show that we went to almost every time we visited Branson, but the 2018 show was not good at all. Many of the family members are no longer with the show. We were very very disappointed!

The Baldknobbers have evolved from the show they use to be. They have moved to a different theater and fine tuned their show. They put together a great band, brought in Todd Bradshaw and still had the Baldknobbers humor and harmony. One of the original...More
