The petersen family were really great. I loved their bluegrass music and the personalities of the family members. The violinist was superb and family was very talented. It was fun and the family even took a picture with us after the performance. We loved all of it.

Fantastically awesome and the greatest performers of all we have seen in branson since every show of the sons of britches is all 100 audience participation by the audience yelling out the songs for the sons of britches to play and sing. Hope they come to new york soon for a performance.

We consider the country evolution show one of the best on the 5 shows we visited. Dalena is very talented and beautiful as a singer and totally in charge of a dynamic show. Very personable. Her 4 piece band is extremely talented and personable as well. You can tell they all enjoy their job of entertaining. Having a show at noon might throw off attendance, but it is their loss. Also that she was from iowa made it even better!!!

James garrett has made an impressive study of john denver (actually knew him) and shared lots of trivia. His guitar style suits the denver songs, but he can’t get the high notes with his vocals. We were in branson in mid august, which is a slow time, and sadly, there were only 12 in the audience for that neat little theater. We didn’t provide much energy for the entertainers. James has an interesting charity for foster kids that merits a mention.

This is our second time for this show. We loved john denver's music, and we love equally the performance of james garrett. It does not appear here, but we also saw his george strait show, and it was equally good. We will do our best to see his glenn campbell show on our next trip, and probably repeat at least the strait show, and maybe even john denver for a third time, on our next trip. We also liked the atmosphere of the small theater and its sense of connection between the audience and the performers.

This is a show we've seen before. We liked it so much we decided to see it again. The imax theater is very small and intimate. But be forewarned, if you are looking for an imitator this not the show for you. This is actually a tribute to denver by someone who knew him. The second half of the show was all requests of john denver songs. (i think he knows them all)

This is an excellent show presented by a wonderful musician! John denver has been my favorite entertainer for years and years and, frankly, i was a bit concerned how this tribute would be it was beyond our expectations! James not only knows the songs, he also knows the back stories behind denver's thoughts when writing the songs. He sings and performs them in a manner that is, indeed, a tribute to john denver. If we get back to branson and james is there, his will be the first show we see, and likely see twice.
