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 was our 2nd year for the New Year's Eve Celebration with the Claygoods. We were so excited about returning in 2016 that we bought our tickets back in the summer. The 2015 new Year's Eve celebration was awesome!! We have also been to Clay's show and the Hot Rods and High Heels Show. We can't say enough good things... More

One of a number of shows I attended while on tour in Branson. Saw many great shows but this one still stands out two months later. If you are planning to visit Branson this spring, this is one you should see--it will make your day.

Clay Cooper Country Express was a very engaging show. Right from the beginning, we are warmed up by watching audience members brought to the stage to compete in cute games. Clay Cooper is a terrific MC as he works his audience in a very endearing manner, and is quick with comedic remarks. The show moves at a good pace with... More

The show is a great experience. We make sure to see it each time we go to Branson. After the show Clay comes out to meet his audience and makes you feel like he really appreciates your being there.

The Christmas Show was awesome. Music and show was very good, After the show Clay made our vacation by spending just a little time with our daughter. He gave her a shirt and signed it. She thinks Clay Cooper hung the moon. Thanks again to Clay. May God bless you, and your family, and staff,

Branson's shows generally the same. Clay Cooper's was different with more variety than others. Awesome concert!
