we've seen both Billy's regular Branson Show and his Christmas Show, in my opinion it's one of the better music shows in Branson.

they have tried to follow the "Branson formula" and put in some comedy, the comedy is ok but it's really not needed because the band and music is so good. If I was going to compare it to something with Branson I think something like Mickey Gilley and Moe Bandy type shows when they first came to Branson.

Saw the show a little over a year ago and thought it was very good.

Below is what I said after the show.

Theatre was about 1/2 full and the crowd was lively. Most seemed to know a whole lot more about Billy Dean's background and songs than I did considering I only received my CW wings a few years ago.
Once Billy got into some of his top 10 songs I had a greater appreciation for who he was. Great voice that doesn't seem to have changed a bit.
Steel Horses sounded great. Four guitars and a drummer, but I found myself wishing they also had a keyboard.
Of course Jarrett was quite funny and worked well with Billy Dean.
All in all a very entertaining show. Fine music and plenty of laughs. I definitely recommend it.
I also enjoy going to the Starlite, just a nice theatre overall. Love those restroom sinks. I must have washed my hands 5 times.
The gift shop was recently written up in the paper for being a bit unique and upscale. Compared to other theatre shops I'd have to agree. Quite a lot of different items to chose from and very little of the ticky tacky tourist stuff you normally find. They had a 75% off table where DW was able to pick up some pewter ornaments for cheap cheap.


Below is some info from Branson Tourism Center the sponsors of this forum.
