Raiding the Country Vault is celebrating just its second season in Branson, but it’s already vaulted itself to the top-rated show on TripAdvisor! An impressive lineup of musicians and singers has been thrilling audiences with classic country songs that hit big for artists like Conway Twitty, George Jones, Glen Campbell, Garth Brooks, Waylon Jennings, Dolly Parton, Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn, and many other legends. The popular show is the vision of Sir Harry Cowell, and was modeled after the smash hit show in Las Vegas, Raiding the Rock Vault. (Raiding the Rock Vault returns to Branson for a second limited-engagement run in 2018 - make sure it’s on your radar, too!)
Each season of Raiding the Country Vault showcases an amazing lineup of country recording artists, songwriters, back up vocalists, and a slew of high profile musicians who’ve worked with some of country’s biggest names, including Kenny Chesney, Alan Jackson, Ricochet, Patsy Cline, Travis Tritt, Dwight Yoakam, Hank Williams Jr., Roy Clark, Ronnie Milsap, Restless Heart, Dierks Bentley, and Tanya Tucker. This year’s lineup carried several artists over from the 2017 season, as well as bringing in some new faces. For 2018, audience favorite Colt Prather returns, as well as renowned singer/songwriter and guitar-player, Billy Yates. (You can also catch Yates in his brand new show - already bringing in rave reviews - “Hit Songwriters in the Round.) Prather provides lead guitar and vocals; “I Won’t Go On and On” is his biggest country hit to date, and he’s a special favorite with ladies in the audience! Yates also plays guitar and shares lead vocal duties; he’s racked up several spots on the country charts with songs he’s recorded, and has written his share of hit songs for other artists, including co-writing the huge George Jones classic, “I Don’t Need Your Rockin’ Chair.”
The list of talented artists taking the stage for Raiding the Country Vault continues to impress everyone who’s seen the show - that list for 2017 and/or 2018 has included the likes of Derrek C. Phillips on drums, Danielle Peck on lead vocals - her hits include “Finding A Good Man,” Steve Ramsey on keyboards, Michelle Poe on lead vocals and bass, Heath Wright on lead vocals and guitar, David Smith and Keith Home, both play multiple instruments, Pete Generous, Melody Hart, and many other notable entertainers.
The musicians, singers, and classic country hits are obviously the stars of this show, but so many other features add to a truly phenomenal production...an incredible sound system, lighting, and special effects, as well as a huge video screen that helps the artists on stage tell the stories behind all the unforgettable music. We could go on and on about why this is one of the best shows in Branson, but a TripAdvisor review summarizes it well -”Do yourself a favor, when in Branson, GO SEE THIS SHOW!” Couldn’t have said it better ourselves!
