Their touring stops have included standing ovations at Music City Roots, The Station Inn, Bluegrass Underground, StickyFingers in Little Rock, Biscuit Festival in Knoxville, The Stagecoach (California’s premiere country music festival) just to name a few.

This past weekend The Cleverlys’ debuted their twisted sense of humor and stellar musicianship at this year’s CMA Fest. The ‘family’ band performed at the SportsZone Stage, The Visit Music City Stage, The WSM Durango Acoustic Stage and received a standing ovation for their set Friday evening at LP Field. Listed below are some of The Cleverlys – Rave Reviews!

*So… The Cleverlys. Somehow making bluegrass covers of Black Eyed Peas and The Bangles totally awesome. @MusicRow

*…humor-filled bluegrass-ish band The Cleverlys gave the festival something it has lacked: stuff to pay attention to in between superstars. Unfortunately, Harris and The Cleverlys disappeared midway through the evening.”~The Tennessean

*”Tonight was a good, good night: For some, CMA Fest is very serious business. For bluegrass cover outfit The Cleverlys, which used its time playing during changeovers at Friday’s LP Field show to roll out their version of the Black Eyed Peas’ I Gotta Feeling, among others, opportunity can be found in the most unlikely of places.”~USA Today

Whether Paul Harris is doing his popular stand up routines, or on stage with The Cleverlys, he delivers a show that audiences keep coming to see time and time again.

The Paul Harris Show featuring The Cleverlys can be seen at The Oak Ridge Boys Theatre throughout the year on selected dates, including a New Year’s Eve Show. Please call our box office for additional details (866) 707-4100.

In May 1911, the RMS Titanic slid down Slipway No. 3 at the Queen’s Yard of Harland & Wolff and settled on the waters of the Victoria Channel in Belfast, Ireland while more than 100,000 people looked on. At the time, she was the largest movable manmade object on the face of the planet. In the coming months, RMS Titanic would complete numerous successful sea trials with Irish workers and crew members on board.
The following April, when Titanic set sail on her maiden voyage, the world watched as the A-List celebrities of the day – the Astors, the Strauses and Guggenheims – boarded alongside everyday working-class people. Four days later, after striking an iceberg on her starboard side, those same diverse passengers would carry out amazing acts of generosity, kindness and heroism as well as unthinkable acts of cowardice as they struggled for their lives in the early morning hours of April 15, 1912.

It has been 99 years since a lookout in the crow’s nest shouted, “Iceberg right ahead!” For the twelve months leading up to April 15, 2012, when it will have been a century since the RMS Titanic was lost, Titanic Museum Attractions will pay respect to and honor those 2,208 passengers and crew members with an ongoing series of special events, activities and ceremonies.

As the whole world remembers the world’s most famous luxury liner, Titanic Museum Attractions will continue to open the door to the past in it’s one-of-a-kind way – letting “passengers” experience what it was like to walk the hallways, parlors, cabins and Grand Staircase of the Titanic while surrounded by more than 400 artifacts directly from the ship and its passengers. As visitors touch a real iceberg, walk the Grand Staircase and third class hallways, reach their hands into 28-degree water, and try to stand on the sloping decks, they learn what it was like on the RMS Titanic by experiencing it first-hand.

Each and every day, Titanic Museum Attractions provides a gateway to 1912, where First Class Maids and a variety of Officers and crew members bring the stories of the fabled ship and its fascinating passengers to life by retelling their stories in vivid, dramatic detail. The priceless artifacts throughout the museum shed additional light on the lives of those passengers and crew members when guests see the actual belongings of those on board and artifacts that sailed on Titanic’s maiden voyage.

The Titanic Museum Attractions in Pigeon Forge, Tenn. and Branson, Mo. opens daily at 9 a.m. Reservations are strongly suggested (many days sell out entirely). Or, passengers may purchase tickets online at www.TitanicAttraction.com or by phone at 800-381-7670.
