"A modern show"
October 2022
If you are looking for country classics, this show is not for you. The costumes and lighting was good. The volume of the show was too loud for me.

Lot of talent. They emphasize their roots But they have forgotten them All these shows need to look at the ages of their audience. We go expecting to hear some good ole Country. Music & what we get is this modern day stuff that’s not COUNTRY. WONDER WHAT their Roots would think. Donna get me wrong they are talented but they are kremlin up with today’s trends.

"Must see!"
October 2019
Wasn't sure what to expect, but had heard it was a must see. It didn't disappoint. Arrived 45 minutes early to enjoy the pre-show. Everyone who performed is loaded with talent. Great mix of humor, country music, Southern rock, gospel music and a salute to America's veterans. Highly recommend!
