Clay Cooper’s Country Express | A Triple Threat Branson Show
Branson, Missouri it is all about the attractions, food and live shows. When planning your trip you want to find the best Branson show. Singing and dancing are great, but an equal amount of great visual effects and comedy is better! That is why Clay Cooper’s Country Express is considered a triple threat Branson show.
Clay Cooper’s Country Express is led by the one and only Clay Cooper. Clay is not new to the Branson show business. He is in his 33rd year of performing in Branson, Missouri. He brings the vocals, dancing, and comedy to the stage. This funny guy may be the lead man of this Branson show, but his band consists of 10 dancers, a trio Third Power, comedian Matt Gumm, his own children Colton and Caden Cooper, and 24 entertainers. The magic and chemistry amongst all of them are what makes this show a must-see when you visit Branson.
It is one thing for an entertainer to come on stage and tell some jokes. It takes talent to include the crowd in your show and laughter. Clay really knows how to connect with the audience and continues that connection throughout the entire Branson show. That is why every show they do is different. I was in tears multiple times during the night laughing so hard.
As the saying goes “laughter is the best medicine” and Clay sure knows how to prescribe.
Clay Cooper’s Country Express is an amazing show, but everyone involved is genuinely kind and hard workers. From the moment you walk into the theater, you may see Mrs. Cooper taking tickets in the ticket booth and 10 minutes later singing and dancing in the open number. When we arrived Colton was stocking waters in the cafe and 20 minutes later he was singing on stage. They work hard and it certainly shows.
Family is extremely important to Clay and the rest of the band and entertainers. Children are able to come to work with them when they need to rehearse or even perform. They personally do not schedule shows if their eldest son has football games. To some that may not make a difference, but knowing how much they treasure their family made me fall in love with them even more.
This Branson show is for all ages and for all genre music lovers. Clay Cooper, his band, and entertainers perform everything from country, gospel, pop (even some N’SYNC!), rock and more. Nothing is off limits when you attend the Clay Cooper’s Country Express.
If you are planning a visit to Branson, Missouri the Clay Cooper’s Country Express will not disappoint!
