Owner description: 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!

“Awesome County & Variety Show”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Attended the New Year's eve show. Have attended the show before on several occasions. The talent, choreography, music, facility and everything else is top notch. They keep a high level of activity moving throughout the show. The stage is high quality, lighting is excellent, and interaction with the audience is top notch. New Year's eve show was an hour longer, tons of food provided, and other entertainers graced the stage for this special event. See you next year!

Reviewed December 31, 2012

Clay makes everyone feel like they are good friends. Very entertaining. Good interaction with the audience, making them part of the show. The 30 plus people that are part of the show are all very talented performers and work hard to provide wonderful show.

“Great Show”
Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

Clay Cooper was great, but 9 year old Ezra Noel stole the show. She is amazing! Great singing and dancing, something to enjoy for all ages.

“Best Theater in Town!”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

Clay is a great guy! Fun on stage, Tina does an awesome job with the choreography, and all the dancers rock! They do a great job of picking the entertainment for their theater, i have never seen a bad show there, all 80 of my customers enjoyed all three shows we saw here (Red, Hot, and Blue, The Rankins, and Clay's Show) This is a "Must" on every trip! See yah in January Clay!

“I agree, Clay Cooper, the Best”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

I was on a 3 day bus trip & this was included. It is a excellent show. Clay is a very good entertainer. His wife & son are part of the show also. The family is very talented. The band, the singer, the dancers & the comedians are all very good. There was a little pre should warm up by Matt Gumm. When I first saw him, I wondered "what in the world is going on?"

This show was also included in our trip, so we really had no choice. I have a trip booked to Branson in March. This is another show that i would see again. Actually the company I was with, Timi's Tours, might be doing a New Years Eve show Dec 2013. If, so I will see Clay Cooper show again. It would probably even be better for New Years Eve, but I don't think it could get much better.

I did not need to take advantage of this, but if you go to one of the shows, there are 3 each day, you get a discount for the other shows. Other theaters probably have the same deal, but I don't know. This was my first Branson trip. Again, it is great show.
