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!

The Clay Cooper Country Express show is the best show in Branson, Missouri. This show is family entertainment for any age. During the entire variety show, the singing and dancing is top notch. The comedian,Matt Gumm, is hilarious. Matt's impersonations are superior and he always adds humor to each. His Michael Jackson impersonation is awesome. Clay has a sound system... More

Clay Cooper show is very entertaining. Good comedy and country music! Lots of family in the show and all very talented. Clay Cooper is great at working the audience. He stays afterwards and signs autographs til the last fan leaves. I know cause I was one of the last. This is a must see show when you visit Branson MO.

Recently visited the Clay Cooper Theater to see his show as well as the Haygood's. Had a great time at both! Very entertaining. Something about Clay makes you feel like he is genuinely a perfect example of what Branson represents. Down to earth, humble and kind as well as talented! Great show!

This show is spectacular! Clay's singing is great & his comedic interaction with the audience is hilarious. His staff are always smiling. The variety is perfect. I especially enjoyed the lasso's and bull whips. My daughter liked the yodeling. Yes, I said yodeling...definitely not something you hear much of anymore, but, man is she good at it! We also enjoyed... More

This show is so energetic and fun. They also show so much respect to our country, it's flag and most importantly our veterans! That means so much to a disabled veteran like myself. Not only is there great music and dancing, but they will have you laughing all night!

We thoroughly enjoy seeing Clay Cooper at Clay Cooper Theatre in Branson, MO. This year we visited with another couple for our summer vacation. They too enjoyed the show, declaring it to be the best of all the ones we viewed! Every time we go to Branson Clay is a "must see." He is personable, homey, humble and talented. The... More
