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, an amazing seven-piece band, Branson’s funnier than funny comedian, Matt Gumm, rising stars Colt and Caden Cooper, and “Oklahoma’s little sweetheart” Ezrah Noelle!

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 perform than Branson! He continued performing in several Branson shows and now celebrates his 31st 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.

"Exceptional Show"
October, 2016
The Clay Cooper Show is one of the best shows I've seen in Branson. This highly entertaining show has great vocals, an incredible band, outstanding dancers and hilarious dialogue between Clay and audience members. The show was polished, had beautiful costuming and a level of musicianship in the band I've not heard in any other show. Even a trip to the ladies room is a hoot with the Queen of the Latrine! Don't miss it!

"GREAT GREAT GREAT SHOW!!!"
June, 2016
2nd time in almost a year to see this show. They are a great, high energy show, and Clay is very funny, great with the audience. My kids always want to go back and see their show. We will always make this show with each trip. My parents who saw him a few years ago said there is an old man that is used PRESHOW but we haven't really seen him, and would love to see his act.

"So glad we chose to see Clay Cooper & company. It was the highlight of the trip."
October, 2015
Good, clean fun with hilarious, warm, genuine, talented people. Loved the music, humor, audience interaction, and dancing. Amazed at how Clay remembered audience members' names, anniversaries, and stories after hearing them once! He personalized the show to the audience and it was absolutely beautiful. The Christian & patriotic themes ran throughout, and always in a way that made you feel proud of who you are. Don't miss it.

Clay Cooper’s Country Express show has always been one of our favorites but the new 2018 show is outstanding. I can’t imagine anyone leaving this show unhappy with its outstanding dancing, vocals, choreography, and song choices, wonderful from beginning to end. It’s a must see in Branson!

We have seen Clay's show many times over several years. It has always been an enjoyable show, but this year was extra good. They have added a 3-member male group called Third Power. We love Matt Gumm. He can do everything--comedy, play many instruments and sing. He is the worship leader at Woodland Hills Church in Branson, which we also highly recommend. We especially love the impersonations. Don't miss this show.

My husband and I have seen this show in the spring and the Christmas show in November or December for the past four or five years. Top-notch entertainment and variety--great dancers, singers, comedy, musicians--power-packed in one show. Can't think of any other show in Branson that offers so much high-quality talent and versatility.
