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!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this show! Great family entertainment. Clay is a talented guy and interacts well with the audience. He also has some very talented people around him, which made for a well rounded show with lots of variety. This is a must see!

What a fun and adrenaline pumping show! Clay Cooper has been in Branson 30 yrs entertaining. His whole family performs. They are so talented as well as the band, and other performers. Eddie Rabbit's drummer is so awesome. Laughter out the roof. Decided to get season tickets and can attend any time they perform, except special functions.

This was our last show before before heading home. We thoroughly enjoyed the show!! Everyone did a phenomenal job on stage. Loved that they included their kids in the performance. They were great! One of the most fun, family friendly shows out there!

The variety was terrific, the talent was amazing and the performers were really personable and involved with the audience. We had 3 completely different age groups and all of us loved... More

When a show's name is 'country music express' I expect a country music show, but this one contained about 30% country and 70% pop/rock selections. I was disappointed with the lack of country music and the tiresome, over-done theatrics on some numbers where too many performers were on stage. It seemed they were trying to distract from the fact musical... More

I've been to Branson 3 times now and I must say the Clay Cooper show is my favorite country & western show there. Clay is a great singer and has such a range and variety in his music. Very entertaining! I purchased his gospel album and am enjoying it so much! This show is at the top of my list... More

Such a refreshing show with wholesome entertainment, excellent interaction with the audience. Saw Clay Coopers Country Express. He is a great entertainer and show includes his very talented 2 boys and his wife. Although mostly country, there is a good mix of other music to keep you smiling, hands clapping, toes tapping. I surprised my boyfriend with tickets and he... More

Clay's show has changed a lot since I first saw it several years ago. He has added several new members to the cast and more variety to the show. Clay still interacts extremely well with the audience and provides a very entertaining show. I recommend you make room in your show schedule for this one.

It was amazing how Clay interacted with the audience & made the show more personal to them. He is a top notch entertainer. I was impressed how he could remember everyone's name that he spoke to in the crowd. Lots of variety in types of music. These people love what they do & it shows in their performance. I appreciate...
