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!

Clay Cooper show was packed with variety (singing, instrumental, trick roping, yodeling has a winning personality and comedy) and all was done well. Clay has a winning personality that adds extra sparkle. This was my hubby's favorite show, and also one of my favorites (and we didn't expect that for a morning show)! One minor drawback for us - the... More

Great show, saw Johnny Lonestar (Johnny Andrew Cody) "roping" at our resort, decided to go to see this show. Variety and audience interaction was the reason I'm writing this. (they even sell CD's for your memories, especially cool if you are part of the show). Really good to see young ones involved also, should be proud parents, encourage other young... More

The show was advertised as comedy but was more music than comedy. There was some but not what we expected. Good singing, family based.

Clay Cooper has a great show with lots of country music, comedy, dancing, and he is very interactive with the audience. We always enjoy coming to this theatre. I especially enjoy the gift shop.

My wife and I went to this Sunday evening show and liked it very much as the singing, dancing and sets were excellent. Our only criticism was that the band and sound were too loud.

This is one of the better shows in Branson and we go to 1-2 / week. Clay's show has 2 hours of fun and high energy with lots of country music. There's variety with comedy, dancing, color, audience interaction & lots of this & that.

Clay Cooper's interaction with the audience is the highlight of this show. He has mastered the innocent, country-boy personality that is reminiscent of Andy Griffith. The rest of the show was entertaining, but not spectacular.
