What do you get with you bring together a fiddle, mandolin, banjo, guitar, upright slap bass, rhinestone costumes, hilarious comedy and great classic country, bluegrass, rockabilly and gospel music at a theatre near you...Branson On The Road®!
Branson On The Road® has over 20 years of experience of performing at the top theatres in Branson on the famous 76 Country Music Boulevard (known as "The Strip"), and is the first national touring show named for the famous city. The show delivers the Branson traditions of good, clean, family fun wherever they go...and they go all over the US and beyond!
Branson On The Road® is the kind of show most people thought was long gone in this day of overproduced music, overused special effects and performers singing to tracks. In the same tradition as the traveling road shows during the glory days of the Grand Ole Opry, the Louisiana Hayride and the first Branson music shows, Branson On The Road® keeps you tapping, laughing and smiling.
Those seeing a Branson On The Road® show can not only expect great music but plenty of hilarious comedy every step of the way.
“We reside in the live music capital of the world, Branson, Missouri”, said Debbie Horton, “and realized that there are many people who will never have a chance to visit Branson personally and with the economy the way it is today, we decided to bring our Branson stage show directly to them.”
Branson On The Road® is the best way to experience a Branson show right where YOU live! For a couple of hours you can forget all about your troubles and have good time – laughter is the best medicine.
Debbie Horton holds the distinction of being the only woman to have played lead guitar for the great Johnny Cash. She hosted her own show at the old Boxcar Willie Theater in Branson and has performed on the famous Louisiana Hayride and Ernest Tubb Midnight Jamboree in Nashville. She was a radio DJ in Norfolk, Virginia and acted as MC for concerts with Kenny Rogers, Hank Williams, Jr., the Oak Ridge Boys, and many more. Among her other credits, Debbie is an accomplished songwriter. She has had her songs recorded by Wanda Jackson, Norma Jean and many other country singers.
Donnie Wright is an expert, sought after, respected musician, arranger and is versatile on many instruments including fiddle, mandolin, guitar, banjo and bass and has been part of the Branson music scene for 40 years. He provides a good deal of the comic relief on the show with his mischievous antics. Among his long list of credits are performances at The Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, The Presley's Show in Branson, The Pine Mountain Jamboree in Eureka Springs, and a long-standing run at The Golden Nugget in Las Vegas. Donnie has been nominated for a Lifetime Honors Award for his contribution to music in the Ozarks by the National Endowments of the Arts in Washington, DC.
Brian Capps plays upright bass and sings songs reminiscent of Marty Robbins and Hank Williams. Brian's latest recording reached the Top 10 on the Americana Charts and is part of the music rotation on XM Radio.
Branson On The Road® is a regular featured act on the national television show, "Midwest Country" on the RFD-TV network seen in over 100 million homes.
