Pigeon Forge, TN- Country Tonite has been synonymous with great country music and family entertainment since its Pigeon Forge debut in 1997 and as its 15th season kicks off with a BRAND NEW and EXCITING SHOW, the trend continues.
“We are one of the few shows in the area that changes its production each year, and this year we are pulling out all the stops with a Brand new show - which means new production numbers, new choreography, new lighting effects, new side-splitting comedy, and new costumes. 2011 promises to surpass all expectations as we combine your favorite country classics with hot new country hits and hilarious country comedy in this fast paced show. It’s the songs you know and love and comedy everyone (even the kids can relate to).” says Sales & Marketing director Laurie Taylor.

Pulling out all the stops during the two-hour production is Country Tonite’s versatile cast of musicians, vocalists, dancers and youth performers. The youth performers they will steal the show with performances way beyond their years, and the Country Tonite dancers will amaze you with expertly choreographed, energetic dance numbers.
