"Classic Country music"
April 2019 NEW
My husband and I enjoy this show because they sing the older classic country music. The name is appropriately named, songs from back when in country music. We love those songs - brings back memories

This is not the same show we saw last time. Performers worked hard, but sadly not the caliber of Billy Yates and company. What happened to all the hitmakers?

"Where are the hitmakers?! "

We planned a trip to Branson, MO and found that Raiding the Country Vault was one of the top shows. It had amazing reviews with an all star cast that have had hits on the radio and toured with major artists. Being huge fans of country music, we were so excited to see the show and the hitmakers. To our surprise, not one of those cast members was in the show! Unfortunately for us, the entire cast was replaced by people who we have never heard of or seen before. The performers were Ok, which is far from the 5 star reviews I read before purchasing the tickets.
