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!

This theater is really nice and clean. I do wish the bathrooms were in a different area though since it doesn't make for good traffic flow. They have a really good selection for the concessions and there is a back way to get out to avoid traffic!

Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

Every year we visit Branson and make this the first show we see! Clay's personality makes this show so much fun all ages enjoy it. My only regret is that he didn't choose me to sing to. Don't miss this great show

“Great Show”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

First time seeing the show. It was real good. One person with us the show is good, but he never changes it. Same jokes & songs. I was surprised at this, as Clay Cooper impressed me to be a great showman. Would recommend it to all

“The Haygoods!”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

By far the best show in Branson, Missouri. I attended the show in 2013 and 2014. My whole family enjoyed the show both years as well.

“Great show”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

Sorry Clay, we were one of those who have driven past your theater countless numbers of times.
What a great show! We left wanting to hear you sing more. We loved the legends tribute. We kept thinking of George's whos gonna fill their shoes song would be a nice fit for the tribute.
The second half of Elton, Joe, the Blues brothers, Sonny and Cher, Brooks and Dunn and the Pointer sisters was a fun segment.
RL's America and the song Tina wrote was a great and touching finale.

Thank david b
