One could say Clay Cooper has been groomed all his life for his current position as host of his own show  “Clay Cooper’s Country Express.”  Born to a musical family in Wylie, Texas, his grandmother played the piano for the Wylie Baptist Church, and gave piano lessons for twenty years.  His dad played guitar and performed at all local Opry shows.  Clay first began singing at the Wylie Opry at the age of fourteen, and continued to perform there until 1986, when he then joined the Texas Gold Minors and moved to Branson, performing at the Ozarks Country Jubilee. Since 1986, Clay has worked for many area shows, including the Country Review Show in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, the Down Home Country Show, the Buck Trent Show, the Jim Owens Show and Country Tonite, where he spent nine years as lead vocalist and emcee.  In 1989, Evergreen Records released a single by Clay titled, “A Little Ground in Texas” which went to #60 on the Cash Box Charts.  In 2003, Clay joined his buddy, Paul Harris, as the featured male vocalist in Paul Harris Live. Clay and his wife, Tina, began Clay Cooper’s Country Express in 2005 in Branson, Missouri. Clay loves Branson and feels privileged to do what he loves while actively raising his boys, Colton and Caden. Both Clay and Tina are truly thankful for the opportunity to perform with such a talented cast and supportive staff.

In November and December, Clay Cooper’s Country Express features an Ozark Mountain Christmas Celebration that has become a “MUST SEE” in Branson!
