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!

“Don't Miss This One”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

Clay's personality is unsurpassed. He has a show that is out of this world. His whole family is involved in the show and along with his dancers, band, a 10 year old superstar and comedians (Especially Matt Gumm), they are all top notch performers. His performance has country singing, comedy, dancing, impersonations of singers, a gospel segment as well as a patriotic segment; And this may be hard to believe, but yes, he said The Pledge of Allegiance on stage, and he did not leave out UNDER GOD. GOD BLESS Clay Cooper.

“Down Home Good Show”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

Clay Cooper has an awesome show. Great music, good comedy and he has an awesome religious and patriotic tribute. He is so funny and has an amazing voice. The theater is very nice and very clean as well. The singing and the dancing will keep your hands clapping and feet tapping. It is family friendly and just an altogether fun show, I would recommend this show if you are coming to Branson! You will not be disappointed.

“One of my Favorite Shows!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

Clay Cooper is my second favorite show to see in Branson! I love going to his show because it's always a little different. He interacts so much with the audience. I love it when he starts talking to people in the audience...he's so funny!! I love Clay's personality! And he's got so much variety on that stage. It's not just him, but he's got a talented comedian, a trick ropester, a little girl who will blow your mind, his family, a bunch of dancers...it's so great! You will be thoroughly entertained from start to finish! I love the second half with all the impersonations. So funny!! Clay is one of my favorite people I have met. He has such a big heart and is so talented...I always see his show if I'm in Branson!! I think you should too. Just be ready to have an amazing night!
