Presley’s Country Jubilee
Child Ages 3-12
The house lights go down, the stage lights come up, and the music begins. The smiles, applause, and laughs from the crowd increase by the minute, and nearly fifteen hundred tapping feet are keeping time to the music…these nights are the culmination of a dream that was decades in the making.
Nearly 50 years after they started, the Presleys have kept doing what they do best. After all, it’s their type of music and style of show that laid the foundation for Branson’s ongoing success and growth.
Presley Family History
They were an Ozark’s family who played the underground stages of the Missouri hills. Folks from all over would pack the caves to hear their legendary family performances. So many, in fact, the caverns couldn’t hold’em anymore.
So the Presleys left the caves and bought themselves a piece of land out on an isolated two-lane stretch of asphalt just outside of town. Wasn’t long after that when their show opened in a brand new theater.
It was Branson’s original country music theater. The Presleys were a smash hit. People from across the country lined up every night for a chance to hear the country and gospel music the Presley family loved to perform.
Pretty soon, other theaters started popping up around the Presleys. The years passedand Hwy. 76 became a glittering mecca of country music stars. And smack dab in the middle of it all, from the very start, were the Presleys.
