Arts & Entertainment Branson on the Road coming to Franklin

The award-winning Branson on the Road is set to rock the stage of the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts for two shows on Saturday, May 14, at 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. The original road show from Branson, Missouri entertains with classic country, bluegrass, rockabilly, and Gospel. Tickets are $10.

Branson on the Road brings together accomplished musicians playing a fiddle, mandolin, banjo, guitar, and upright slap bass, dresses them in rhinestone costumes, and wraps the whole thing in hilarious comedy.

Branson on the Road has been in existence for more than 20 years and is the first national touring show named for the famous city.

The show delivers the Branson tradition of good, clean, family fun wherever they go and they go all over the world. Branson on the Road is also a regular act on the national television show, Midwest Country, and even performs the show’s opening theme song.

Branson on the Road features a number of talented performers, among them host Debbie Horton, an accomplished songwriter who holds the distinction of being the only woman to have played lead guitar for the great Johnny Cash. Co-host Donnie Wright is an expert on many instruments including fiddle, mandolin, guitar, banjo and bass and has been part of the Branson music scene for 40 years. The show also features Brian Capps who plays upright bass and sings songs in the vein of Hank Williams. Capps’ latest recording reached the Top 10 on the Americana Charts and is part of the music rotation on XM Radio.
