“Well it certainly received the most ‘nominations’ when we asked the question, ‘What 2016 Branson show would you nominate to receive the ‘Top Branson Show of 2016 Award?’ on our Facebook and Twitter social media channels earlier this week,” said Preston Garrison, Director of Operations for the Branson Tourism Center. Obviously, ‘nominations’ are one thing, but narrowing it down to the ‘Best Branson Show of 2016’ would require a more extensive process; not the least of which would be the establishment of such an award,” Garrison continued.
The post reached over 16.6 thousand people on Facebook and received hundreds of responses. The top nominee was the Grand Jubilee show. In alphabetical order, here are the top six nominees, along with a brief show description and a link to their 2017 scheduling, ticketing, pricing, and other information, for those shows who have furnished us their 2017 show schedules and appropriate information for publication and ticket sales:
Clay Cooper’s Country Express has everything you want in a great Branson show! With 24 veteran entertainers, there’s a variety of singing, dancing, comedy, and music. Backed by a live seven piece band, you’ll hear country and pop hits from the likes of George Jones, Hunter Hayes, the Doobie Brothers, and Bruno Mars!
Forever Young is a story of musical discovery not yet told in Branson; the tale of six young friends, the basement of a Midwest suburban home, and the joy of listening to music played on a real, old-time record player. These talented singers take you on a journey using their big voices and dynamic dance moves to perform the songs that make up the playlist of your life.
Grand Jubilee boasts tight harmonies, great vocals, a variety of musical styles, and side splitting comedy in a show custom-made for all ages!

Moses spectacularly brings the Bible tale to life on Sight and Sound’s 300 foot surround stage.
