Featuring 24 Veteran entertainers, Clay Cooper's Country Express gives you high energy live music, singing, dancing, and hysterical comedy - from George Jones to Hunter Hayes and from the Doobie Brothers to Bruno Mars!

Don't miss New York's number one cowboy, trick roper, and gun-slinger, Johnny Lonestar; amazing dancers led by Clay's multi-talented wife, Tina Cooper; a seven-piece band; Branson's funnier than funny comedian, Matt Gumm; rising star Colt Cooper; and "Oklahoma's little sweetheart" Ezrah Noelle! Their unbelievable talent, hysterical comedy, and down-home personality bring our guests back time and time again. This cast goes all out, performing country, rock n roll, gospel and more! We definitely have something for everyone! Located in the Clay Cooper Theatre on Hwy 76 across from The Titanic Museum.

Clay Cooper has been performing for Branson audiences since the age of 16, originally coming to Branson to perform with a kid's band known as the Texas Goldminors. Clay loved singing and playing bass, and loved meeting new people. What better place to do it than Branson! He continued performing in several Branson shows and now celebrates his 28th season performing. Clay hangs out after every show, greeting the audience and meeting new fans!

In November and December, Clay Cooper's Country Express features an Ozark Mountain Christmas Celebration that has become a "MUST SEE" in Branson.

The Clay-Goods Jambor-Eve: Celebrate New Year's Eve with Clay Cooper's Country Express and The Haygoods for a family-friendly, unforgettable, Blowout Party! Hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar will be available for those who might be interested. There will be party favors for everyone, and a MASSIVE balloon drop happens at the stroke of midnight! This year, Clay Cooper and his talented cast of 24 singers, dancers and musicians will be joined by the Haygoods for a memorable NEW YEARS EVE experience!

We saw the holiday special show in late December and were very happy. It was our first time visiting Branson and didn't know what show to see. Clay had a fun sense of humor and all of the singing was great! Of all the shows we saw in Branson It is definitely a must see!

Actually, we havent seen a show in Branson that was not amazing. But, Clay Coopers is the one we always know we are going to,while in Branson! The interaction that Clay Cooper does with the audience is so funny! The music/songs performed are great! The dancers,skits,the whole show, wonderful! I will and do highly recommend this show!

We show this show for the first time New Year's Eve with The Haygoods. It was the best show. He was so entertaining, and his talent surpassed what I thought when we bought our tickets. He changed up the singing by involving the audience. He was very funny and he can sing.

Wanted to give them another chance , Show is the same as last year, He spends a lot of time in the audience talking and teasing the crowd,, music is so-so... they have several dancers, but they seem to have trouble staying in sync with each other, If you do decide to try them out go early, the box office...

The Christmas show was great. Clay Cooper knows how to work the audience and also a great performer. Everyone in the show are very good performers. Matt Gumm is a great comedy guy. The music was very good.
