Get out your boots or sneakers and come join us for a wonderful afternoon at the Midwest Country Theater in Sandstone. Branson on the Road, currently touring around the United States, brings the fun of a Branson show directly to you. Classic country, hilarious comedy, bluegrass, rockabilly and hand clappin’ gospel with your Branson co-hosts Debbie Horton and Donnie Wright.

Debbie Horton holds the distinction of being the only woman to have played lead guitar for the great Johnny Cash. She was a radio DJ at a major market radio station in Norfolk, Virginia and acted as MC for concerts with Kenny Rogers, Hank Williams, Jr., the Oak Ridge Boys, and many more. Among her other credits, Debbie is an accomplished songwriter. She has had her songs recorded by Wanda Jackson, Norma Jean and many other country singers.

Donnie Wright is a respected musician, arranger and is versatile on many instruments including fiddle, mandolin, guitar, banjo and bass. He is a veteran performer of stage and TV with a long list of successful performances including The Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, The Presley’s Show in Branson, The Pine Mountain Jamboree in Eureka Springs, and a long-standing run at The Golden Nugget in Las Vegas.

Brian Capps plays upright bass and sings songs reminiscent of Marty Robbins and Hank Williams. Brian’s latest recording reached the Top 10 of the Americana Charts and is on the regular music rotation on XM Radio.

Hope your footwear is on, your feet are a stoppin,’ your hands are a clappin’ and you’re hopping the bus with us for a wonderful time at the Midwest Country Theatre on April 27.
