Day 2 – George Dyer & Daniel O’Donnell

After breakfast at the Hotel we depart for our first musical show of the tour – George Dyer’s Broadway to Bublé at the Americana Theatre. Bringing his World-Class, Award-Winning tenor voice and showmanship to the Branson stage, George Dyer WOWS audiences with hits from Broadway, Cinema, Power Ballads, Opera, Love Songs, Country, and Gospel, as well as contemporary favorites. Unlike any other show you’ll find in Branson, George and his talented family take you on a mesmerizing musical journey that is inspiring audiences to enthusiastic ovations. If you like Josh Groban, Mario Lanza, Michael Bublé, or want to have a World-Class musical experience right in the heart of the Ozarks, then you’ve got to see George Dyer! After an independent lunch, we then see Daniel O’Donnell at the Welk Theatre. Daniel O’Donnell, everyone’s favorite Irish import, is known for his exceptional voice and boyish charm. He’s been recognized several times as Entertainer of the Year by the Irish Recorded Music Association, received Lifetime Achievement Awards from both The Irish Post and the Sunday World, and was named International Artist of the Year twice by the British Country Music Awards. (B)

Day 3 – Hughes Brothers & Presleys’ Country Jubilee

After breakfast at the Hotel, we travel to the Hughes Brothers Theatre. The Hughes Brothers and family transport you to a Christmas Wonderland filled with the season’s best vocal harmonies, exciting dances, inspiring instrumentals, and of course, the enchantment and light-hearted humor that everyone loves about the Hughes Brothers Show. Along with all the festive surprises and treasured family traditions, see Santa in a new light when he explains the symbols of Christmas in the most moving Christmas presentation you’ve ever witnessed. After an independent lunch and free time to shop in Branson, tonight we enjoy another group dinner, before enjoying the evening performance at Presley’s Country Jubilee. Back in 1967 the Presleys built the first live music theatre in Branson, Missouri. Today, Presleys’ Theatre is a Branson Landmark, and the Presley family is still here entertaining audiences with a one-of-a-kind mix of country, gospel, bluegrass and hilarious comedy! (B,D)

Day 4 – Gene Watson & Lights of Joy

Today we have lots of time to relax and enjoy the scenery before we have an early dinner at Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen, where in true Southern tradition, they serve a family style spread of hearty Down Home dishes. After dinner we head over to the Mansion Theatre to see the Gene Watson Show.  Enjoy the top hits of this country music star as he brings his smooth vocals to the Branson stage. After 52 years of experience in the music industry, Watson’s voice has never sounded better and his honest and sincere lyrics ring truer than ever. Gene Watson’s tally of No. 1 hits, 23 Top 10 Hits, and more than 75 charted titles makes him one of the finest pure country singers. He was inducted into the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame in 2002 and the inaugural class of the Houston Music Hall of Fame in 2013. In 2020, he was invited by Vince Gill to join the Grand Ole Opry, one of the most prolific honors. After the show we drive through the Lights of Joy Christmas Display, with a 1-mile long sparkling light trail. (B,D)

Day 5 – The SIX Show & Raiding the Country Vault

After breakfast at the Hotel and free time through lunchtime, we head for a matinee performance of The Six. Combining acapella music with local talent and the finest Branson flair. It’s amazing musical that features the Knudsen brothers using their own vocal talents to perform classic songs from all genres. The curtains will open to reveal the SIX brothers’ incredible and lively choreography, impeccable harmonies, and unforgettable vocals and you’ll swear there’s a guitar or drum set somewhere on stage – but there are no instruments, tracks or lip-synching. After a Group Dinner we then see our last performance of the tour, at the Americana Theatre. Raiding the Country Vault brings the history of country music to life, featuring classics by the biggest acts, including, Johnny Cash, Buck Owens, Conway Twitty, Merle Haggard, George Jones, Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, Glen Campbell, Waylon Jennings, Garth Brooks, George Strait, Brad Paisley, and many more. In three years, Raiding the Country Vault has won multiple awards in Branson, including “Entertainers of the Year”, “Best Band”, and many individual band awards. (B,D)

After breakfast at the hotel, we depart to travel home from the Springfield/Branson airport, arriving at home with wonderful memories of your musical trip to Branson. (B)
