Nice article about the Haygoods

I wasn't sure where to put this article so I thought I'd put it here.

Messenger: Branson musical family tackles new challenges amid self-isolation of coronavirus pandemic

Tony Messenger
Tony Messenger is the metro columnist for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Tim Haygood had a question for his siblings, who make up one of the most well-known musical families of Branson.

For 27 years, more than half his life, he and his family members had been on stage every night. They started at Silver Dollar City in 1993, then moved to other theaters. Every night, The Haygoods would sing, dance and perform in front of crowds of hundreds.

Then the coronavirus pandemic hit and they found themselves at home, separated from each other, from their fans, from the now deserted Branson strip. Like so many other people across the country, they held a Zoom video call to stay in touch.

“What do normal people do at night?” Haygood asked.

It’s a question many of us are asking in some form or fashion in this new normal, where stay-at-home orders are being extended and we find ourselves spending more time with family, calling and texting friends, filling the void with binge-watching of television series, rediscovering board games and having time to cook family meals.
For the Haygoods — and all of Branson, really — it’s an entirely different sort of adjustment.

Great article. Interesting that they have been paying their supporting employees out of their own pocket.
I did notice on their Saturday night live streams there is a link for tipping. Now I better understand why. To help paying the people who help make their show happen.
