Statlers

The cast of “Statler Brothers Revisited” will headline “Branson Country USA” Friday night.

This weekend’s edition of “Branson Country USA,” set for 10:30 p.m. Friday at the Grand Country Music Hall, will feature the cast of “Statler Brothers Revisited” at Jerry Presley’s God & Country Theatre.

This show features “The Class of ‘57,” a quartet which reproduces the smooth, four-part harmony that made the Statler Brothers an American institution. Their singing is modeled on the tradition of gospel quartet singing, but with songs related to their country roots.

They perform the Statlers greatest hits, including songs like “Elizabeth,” “Flowers On The Wall,” “Do you Remember These,” “I’ll go To My Grave Loving You,” “Class Of ’57,” “More Than a Name,” and more. Also, “The Class of ‘57” performs a short segment during the show paying Lester “Roadhog” Moran and his backup band, the Cadillac Cowboys. They were the legitimate talents of the legendary Statler Brothers as they comically spoof their roots in country music.

“Branson Country USA” is a weekly radio and TV show, featuring Patrick and Haage as hosts, as well as the New South Quartet, David Ragan, Jon Drockelman, Mark McCauley, Luke Menard, female vocalists Jackie Brown and Melody Hart, and the Grand Band, known locally as the “Rhinestone Mafia,” which features steel guitarist Gene Mulvaney, keyboard player Michael W. Davis, bassist Larry Allred, drummer Rob Blackburn, guitarist Chad Cathell and fiddler Wayne Massengale.

Showtime is 10:30 p.m. Friday at the Grand Country Music Hall.

Next week’s “Branson Country USA” guests will see Radney “Little E” Pennington, Gene Dobe July 12, Nashville French Creole singer Dennis Stroughmatt July 19, Jerry Presley from “Elvis Live” July 26 and Randy Plummer Aug. 2.

Showtime is 10:30 p.m. Friday at the Grand Country Music Hall.
