Following the 50-year celebration of the” live music show capital” last year, Branson still has a lot to sing about with even more celebrations this year including the 50th birthday of the award-winning Silver Dollar City theme park and the 50th year of the Shepherd of the Hills outdoor drama.

And sing about it, they do. The song, Listen to the Music, recorded by the Doobie Brothers in 1972, has become the theme song for Branson and many will recognize this familiar tune as the music playing behind the Branson TV commercials, currently seen on national cable. To promote the variety and live music bonanza one can find in Branson, from The Legend of Kung Fu, with a cast of over 50 performers, to Neal McCoy and Buck Trent at the new Clay Cooper Theatre, Joseph Hall in “A Tribute to Elvis,” and the award-winning vocal band The Cat’s Pajamas and so much more, Branson Landing, the 95-acre retail entertainment destination with over 100 shops and restaurants, decided to add a new show to their $7.5 million fountain spectacular.

Now visitors to the Branson Landing will see and hear the Doobie Brother’s rendition of Listen to the Music, choreographed to water, fire, light and music. Marc Williams, Principal of HCW, LLC, the developer of Branson Landing, stated, “I was approached by Tammy Scholten, Director of Marketing/Entertainment for the Branson Landing, about using the Doobie Brothers “Listen to the Music” as the next new fountain show and after much discussion, we all agreed that this song would be a great way to welcome guests to Branson and Branson Landing, as well as tie in with the recognizable music theme associated with Branson and all that the city has to offer.”

And now, added to the fountain show lineup, guests can also “Listen to the Music” at Branson Landing. From all of us in Branson, we invite everyone to take the time to celebrate with your family and friends this year in Branson.

Don Williams “Un-Retires” for
Major Show in Branson

Don Williams, with hits including Good Ole Boys Like Me, I Believe In You, Love Is On A Roll, Some Broken Hearts Never Mend and Tulsa Time, has always had a knack for finding songs that speak directly to people’s hearts. All together he has 17 – #1 and 42 – Top 10 hits.

Such a career has made Don Williams a 2010 inductee to The Country Music Hall of Fame. That honor, accompanied by an overwhelming demand by fans around the world, has prompted Williams to come out of retirement for a few select concerts this fall. One of those very special shows will be at Tri-Lakes Center in Branson on Saturday October 9 at 7:00pm.

When he retired four years ago Williams had no plans to take the stage again. It was time to enjoy the fruits of his labor, and when he felt like it he would still record new material. That changed this year with the announcement that Williams would be entering the Country Music Hall of Fame. His fans kept asking for the opportunity to hear his amazing voice live on stage one more time. As an artist who always appreciated the tremendous support of his fans, Williams decided to perform a handful of shows this fall to say “thank you” for his incredible career.

More information about this historic Branson show on Saturday October 9 at Tri-Lakes Center is available at www.upcloseconcerts.com. Tickets are on sale at the Tri-Lakes Center box office or by calling (417) 336-0219.

State Representative Nita Jane Ayres announces the endorsement of former State Treasurer, Sarah Steelman.

“I am proud to throw my support behind Nita Jane as she continues to be a strong conservative leader in Jefferson City”, Steelman said. “The people are tired of the government interfering in their lives, small businesses, and personal property and Nita Jane has a proven track record of voting in favor of the people in her district”.

Steelman is known best for starting the program Terror-Free Investing during her tenure as State Treasurer. The program provides oversight of state funds to ensure that Missouri’s tax-payer dollars are not sent to countries like Iraq, Iran, Sudan and other terror-sponsoring nations.

“I am honored to have the support of Sarah”, said Ayres. “Sarah has been a strong pro-business, pro-life and pro-family advocate for the people of this state and has inspired many across Missouri and our nation as she continues to work tirelessly for our conservative principles”.

Steelman’s first public appearance for Ayres will be Monday, June 28th at 5:30pm for a Nita Jane Ayres campaign rally.

Ayres has also earned the exclusive endorsement of the Missouri Right to Life.

Ayres is one of three Republican candidates for State Representative for the 62nd District of the Missouri House of Representatives.  The 62nd District includes parts of Stone and Taney Counties.  Ayres was elected as State Representative in a Special Election this past February.

IRAQ WAR VETERAN BOBBY HENLINE TO VISIT AREA

Posted In: City News by BroadcastBranson.com


What: Frontier Airlines is supporting the transportation of Staff Sergeant Bobby Henline, a very special active duty soldier, from San Antonio, Texas, to Branson, Missouri

When: Frontier Flight arrives approximately 1:50PM CST; Thursday, June 24, 2010

Where: Branson Airport, 4000 Branson Airport Blvd, Hollister MO 65672

Traveling South on Hwy 65 approximately one mile from the Hollister interchange, turn left on Maple Street/Branson Creek Blvd. Continue approximately 5 miles (Branson Creek Blvd. becomes Branson Airport Blvd.) and park in the Short Term lot. Please bring in your parking ticket for validation.

In 2007, Bobby was in Iraq and assigned to relieve another soldier as a Humvee driver on April 7, 2007. On that day, his very first day in his new role, Bobby was driving a Humvee when it hit a road-side bomb. The bomb totally destroyed the Hummer and killed the other men in the vehicle. Bobby’s clothing caught fire. Sergeant First Class Bryant Fowler, the soldier Bobby was relieving, pulled Bobby out of the truck, doused the fire that was consuming him and began life saving procedures.

Bobby was flown back to the States, and since April 7, 2007, he has had to endure 41 plastic surgeries to restructure his torso, head and arms. The plastic surgery failed on one arm and it had to be amputated. Thankfully, where there was only bone, the surgeons were able to put down new skin tissue. They recently did surgery on his left eye, which he also lost, so it would appear more normal and they have begun reconstructive work on his mouth. The surgeons gave Bobby less than a 50-50 chance of pulling through those initial surgeries, but he surprised them all by surviving.

The best part of the story and why we are helping to get Bobby to Missouri:

Bobbi is to be honored and to throw in the first pitch in a minor league Springfield Cardinal home game on the evening of June 25. As if that wasn’t enough, the soldier who pulled Bobby from the burning Humvee and applied life-saving procedures (Sergeant First Class Bryant Fowler) now lives and works as head Drill Sergeant at Ft. Leonard Wood. Bryant and Bobby have not seen each other since the accident in 2007. On Friday, June 25, at the start of the game, SFC Fowler will make a surprise entrance onto the field, seeing Bobby for the first time in more than three years and joining him as he throws the game’s first pitch. I have to tell you, it brings a tear to my eye, just thinking about it.

My understanding is that the Stadium is sold out in anticipation. More than 7,300 people will be in attendance. The Our House Foundation (the group that I have been working with) and the Springfield Cardinals will be honoring both men at the Cardinals game that night.

Given the severity of Bobby’s injuries and the many many surgeries he has endured, it is very important that we do all we can to give this special soldier the special care he so needs (and deserves).
