Country Tonite

I'm going to change how I review this show and instead of giving you a song by song review, I'm giving you an overall view of what you’ll see.  Country Tonite is currently performing in the Oak Ridge Boys Theater.  We saw 5 featured singers, 7 talented dancers, 1 hilarious comedian, and a 5 piece band complete with a steel guitar.  

You'll hear Old Country, New Country, Blue Country, and Upbeat- make ya want to dance Country.  These guys get your heart pumpin' and your toes tappin' in a whirlwind of Country songs.  Did I mention they sing Country?  You'll hear songs like Rocky Top, Walking After Midnight, Pink Cadillac, Little Liza Jane, and so many more.  All the singers Kim Barber, Kenya Wilhite, Jason Froeschle, David Griffin and L.E. Mae took turns singing individually, as duets or everyone joined.  This is the place to get your fill of Country music.

For some comic relief from the country music, you can’t get much better than the comedian Harley Worthit.  He’ll have you laughing till your belly hurts.  Wish I could remember a joke he told, but I wouldn’t want to spoil it for you.  You just have to go see him in the show.

I can’t say enough about the dancers in the Country Tonite show.  They are some of the highest kicking, fastest moving, and talented dancers in town.  I managed to capture a lot of the moves in the pictures I took, but most were blurry.  And don’t forget about the band; equally as talented and worth going to hear.

There was only one thing that bothered me during the show and that was the big screen at the back of the stage.  Just a personal opinion, but the screen was very bright – especially when projecting yellow.  Made me wish I has my sunglasses on.  But I wouldn’t let that stop me from seeing this fantastic show.

These guys are truly wonderful. To make sure you get a chance to see the show, go to or call 417-239-4274.  Tell them you read the review on and you will get $4 off an adult ticket.
