Clay Cooper’s Country Express has something for everyone with 25 entertainers on stage, great visual effects, and a variety of music – old & new country, rock n roll, gospel, and patriotic! The singing, dancing, and hysterical comedy will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. Clay and his gang guarantee a family-friendly show, perfect for all ages. Then in November and December, this show features a Christmas Celebration that has become a “MUST SEE” in Branson. The first half is filled with highlights from the regular season show, and the second half is ALL Christmas!
One could say Clay Cooper has been groomed all his life for his current position as host of his own show “Clay Cooper’s Country Express.” Born to a musical family in Wylie, Texas, his grandmother played the piano for the Wylie Baptist Church and gave piano lessons for twenty years. His dad played guitar and performed at all local Opry shows. Clay first began singing at the Wylie Opry at the age of fourteen and continued to perform there until 1986, when he then joined the Texas Goldminors and moved to Branson, performing at the Ozarks Country Jubilee.
Since 1986, Clay has worked for many area shows, including the Country Review Show in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, the Down Home Country Show, the Buck Trent Show, the Jim Owens Show, and Country Tonite, where he spent nine years as lead vocalist and emcee. In 1989, Evergreen Records released a single by Clay titled, “A Little Ground in Texas” which went to #60 on the Cash Box Charts.
In 2003, Clay joined his buddy, Paul Harris, as the featured male vocalist in Paul Harris Live. Clay and his wife, Tina, began Clay Cooper’s Country Express in 2005 in Branson, Missouri. Clay loves Branson and feels privileged to do what he loves while actively raising his boys, Colton and Caden. His oldest daughter, Cassidy, is now living in Texas pursuing a career in photography. Both Tina and Clay are truly thankful for the opportunity to perform with such a talented cast and supportive staff.
