A Tribute to John Denver Starring James Garrett in Branson is a can’t miss experience for every fan of the iconic rocker with the gentle musical touch.  Denver’s music appeals to fans across several genres and eras, with a classic sound that’s as relevant today as it was when he popped out hit after hit in the 70’s. And what makes this tribute incredibly special is that James Garrett was a close friend of Denver’s; he shows a passion for the music only someone who knew the superstar could display.  Denver’s biggest hits include “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” “I’m Sorry,” “Sunshine on My Shoulders,” “Rocky Mountain High,” “Thank God I’m A Country Boy,” “Back Home Again,” and “Annie’s Song.”  He earned two Grammy Awards and an Emmy Award, as well as a smattering of awards from the Country Music Association, the Academy of Country Music, and the American Music Awards.  Denver was also inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, and was recognized for his tireless humanitarian work.  

James Garrett makes hearing the music of John Denver extra special because he shares the stories behind the music, lending new meaning for fans hearing songs like “Matthew” and “Grandma's Feather Bed.”  And Garrett himself has an impressive resume; he was lead male vocalist and rhythm guitar player for the Grammy-winning group, The Kendalls, and he’s toured with huge acts like Ricky Skaggs, Dolly Parton, and Glen Campbell.  For his show A Tribute to John Denver Starring James Garrett, he’s joined on stage by long-time entertainer, Randy Plummer, a member of the legendary Plummer Family of Branson.  The production is showcased in the type of intimate theater setting that’s ideal for such an endearing tribute.

My husband and I went to the show this week. James did an excellent job. Lots of John Denver songs. He personally knew John Denver so it was interesting to hear the stories. Small intimate theatre was very nice. Would highly recommend this show!!

"Disappointed "

Rating of 1 stars  Reviewed October 15, 2016
Expected to hear 2 hrs of JD songs. Heard 10 total. Too much talking and guests who had nothing to do with JD. Saw a tribute at Legends and it was awesome. Continuous music. You need to take a lesson from them The singing we did hear was awesome just not enough

"Great concert"

Rating of 5 stars  Reviewed October 7, 2015
I did not think this show would be so great until I saw it. Loved it. Great theater with up close audience. They put on a wonderful show. Loved the fiddler and bass. Very talented people. Also the Jed Clampette and John Wayne were wonderful and the gospel singers. We were a tour from Va. Loved Branson.

"Enlighting show!"

Rating of 5 stars  Reviewed September 20, 2015
I know John Denvers music but little about his personal life. James Garrett having known John personally was able to tell the audience great stories of their times together and of items of interest about the man and his music. John Denver's music is what brought us to this show but it was James Garrett who made this tribute a pleasure to hear.

After a long trip back to Pennsylvania, we had a lot of time to reflect on our recent visit to Branson, Missouri. Your staff was superior and really delivered flawless! All of our shows had great seats! Alfred was pulled on stage at Grand Jubilee and I laughed like I haven’t in years. We bought the video to relive that moment. It is hard to imagine how we would have had such a wonderful vacation without your help. So when we return, which we will, expect a call from us.
