“Hank Williams "revisited"”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

We were just in Branson For a week (Nov. 19-26) and this was my first time at a "Tribute Show" at the Little Opry Theater. I was so touched by this man's singing and telling some of the life story of Hank Williams. The singer is Tim Hadler and he has an amazing voice and a wonderful character. You feel like you know him right away. After this show we saw 3 other tribute shows at the Little Opry Theater and the last one was the John Denver tribute. The fellow who was supposed to sing the Denver songs (James Garret) had laryngitis so Tim Hadler stepped in and sang the songs and what a great job he did. Garrett did the announcing and I would have loved to hear his singing as well but hopefully next time we are in Branson will hear him. I would definitely go back to see Tim Hadler again and again. He has such a gentle nature about him and connects with the audience so well.

“Peterson Family was great”
Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

The show was delightful in that the entire family is musical. The older sister is wonderful on her banjo. She
knows how to pick. The younger girl was great on the Violin and was a great Mc. The dad was awesome on
bass. Mom was interesting on the mandolin. Don't miss this show.

“Too casual for some songs, please take out blood songs -Smoke on Mtn”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

Story line very interesting- using scripture in too casual, non respected way.signing lady was funny yet sonehow not respectable to the deaf.signing lady is the comic to the
old treasured hymn. The preacher is courting in the middle of whispering hope.Could not get comfortable with show. Hard to know staging or ministry?

“Great Hank Williams show in an intimate setting”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

I am much more of a Hank Williams fan than is my wife, so I was really looking forward to this show. My wife, on the other hand, wanted to stay back at the hotel. She ended up being really glad that she went with me, and we both enjoyed the show immensely. We appreciated the intimate setting and felt much more of a personal connection with the performer than at the large venue shows. The singing was great, but we also really liked the very informative and interesting background stories about Hank's life. We left both entertained and educated. The singer's wife provided free light snacks at intermission, a very nice touch. We also enjoyed the performances by the singer's young sons. Overall a very fun show.

“Johnny Cash Tribute”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

This was a very intimate show in a very cozy theater. James Garret and others sing some of Johnny's most popular songs. In addition, James provides information about how some of the songs were sung by Johnny Cash. When we go back to Branson, we plan to attend other shows in the theatre.
