In Branson” could be a new phrase for the Branson Wedding Association to add to the Dixie Cups song, “Going to the chapel and we’re gonna get married,” as the group sets its charter launch for Friday, May 1, at 10 a.m. at the All American Café, 239 Shepherd of the Hills Expressway, in Branson.

Individuals and businesses interested in making Branson a more nationally recognized destination for weddings, honeymoons and anniversaries and providers of those services throughout the Ozarks are invited to the launch to learn more about the group, its goals and how to be involved.

Wedding related businesses working together to build Branson into an even bigger and better wedding and honeymoon destination are invited to join us for our official launch and learn more about charter membership perks,” said Kathy Baltajy Smith, who, along with her husband, Dr. Dale Smith, has founded the new organization.

“Branson Wedding Association is a spin-off from meetings of the group sales and public relations departments of the Branson Chamber of Commerce,” said Lynn Berry, director of public relations for the Branson Chamber of Commerce. She has seen other parts of the country be very successful in the wedding destination industry and this association will provide more focus on that part of the tourism industry in the Branson area, she said.

Branson Wedding Association/Ozark Wedding Association’s website explains the goals and membership guidelines. “Your official source for weddings, honeymoons and anniversaries in Branson, Mo. We want to make your planning process easy, fun and stress free!” the site says. It has “information to help make your romantic occasion an event to remember, no matter what your budget or style.” The address is bransonweddingassociation.com.

“Those who represent facilities and other places where ceremonies and receptions can be held; vendors such as professional planners, florists, photographers, caterers, formal shops, musicians and transportation companies; lodging; vacation packages; recreation including shows, attractions, restaurants and special events are needed to make this association successful. All are invited to attend our launch event,” Kathy Baltajy Smith said.

The Best of Gene Williams Country Music TV Show returns with two of the Telly Award-winning show’s favorite guests, Johnny Cash’s Tennessee Three and the Plummer Family, on this week’s telecast of the weekly television show based in Branson, Mo.

“Of all the guests I’ve had on my show, the Tennessee Three is one of my favorites because of my close association with Johnny Cash and the Tennessee Three. Because of the popularity of the movie ‘Walk the Line,’ the Tennessee Three have been discovered by even more fans,” said Gene Williams who grew up with Cash in Dyess, Ark., and worked in country music with Cash himself. “My friends, guitarist Bob Wootton and WS Holland on drums, the longest standing members of Johnny Cash’s band, are carrying on the tradition they started more than 40 years ago.”

“The Plummer Family Show was one of the first and best theatres in the Branson area. Darrell and Rosie Plummer opened their theater in May 1973 and performed for 18 years. Darrell and Rosie and their son Randy are great guests on my show. Randy is a talented songwriter and showman,” said Williams, the star and creator of the Telly Award-winning show that was taped live at the 50’s at the Hop Theatre at the Shoppes at Branson Meadows.

The TV show with the Tennessee Three and the Plummers will be telecast May 2 and 3.
