Last night's Branson Country USA Late Show at Grand Country Music Hall was marvelous! This Branson show is always jam-packed with Ozark entertainment. The word of the night was FAIR.
The special guest was Fair from Branson's
Americana Theatre. Contrary to their name, they were anything but fair in their performance. Longtime friend Larry Allred introduced them after some funny off-the-air repartee. Then they wowed the audience with their music which included a Hunter Hayes medley.
Another highlight of the night was when Jackie Brown invited her friend Luke Menard (New South Quartet) onstage to sang their rendition of I Will Always Love You.
They filled the song with feeling and this writer is sure Dolly would have been proud.
Other highlights of the night were Melody Hart singin' and playin' up a storm. Melody's charm and talent prove why she's been given the nickname Little Miss Country Sunshine.
David Ragan showed why he has been a favorite singer in gospel music circles for a while now. "We had our eye on him for quite a while before things worked out to have him as a part of New South. We are so glad to have him with us," said show producer and host Mike Patrick.
Master fiddler Wayne Masengale's young protege' Kannon Parker proved he is learning from the best. "It was his first time playing with a full band," said proud grandmother Linda Tichenor (Owner, Grand Glitz).
Mike Patrick and Jamie Haage kept the whole thing rolling with their own brand of humor and even managed to ask people to visit Branson's Tour Guide and the Branson Guest Card.
