Beginnings of the Branson Music Theaters

  • Aired: 01/21/2010
  • 27:59
  • Rating: NR
Family music shows are an enduring part of the Branson tourism and music industry. Their success can be very much attributed to hard work and talent, family tradition and old-fashioned values. Two music shows exemplify this in a special way. The Mabe and Presley families each continue to feature a multi-generational cast and an entertaining show always suitable for any family member.
