The seasons have come and gone very quickly this year. We ended our theater lineup with a Veterans Day show featuring Sherwin & Pam Linton and Red Johnson. Very fun day and a nice way of ending show for 2012 thanks for everyone that came because weather was a little wintery. We are planning a January 12th show at 2PM. We will put it on website as soon as I have everything lined up.
Also for so many of you that came to Branson to see us at the RFD Theater there was a big interest in a video of the show. That should be available by end of this month.
Thanks for watching RFD & Midwest Country. Happy Thanksgiving from us at Midwest Country.
Our 2012 theater shows for the season ended with a fantastic two day weekend 6th & 7th. We all enjoyed the great music and atmosphere as the day came to an end. Big thank you for everyone doing such a great job!
We were blessed with cool autumn weather, which made travel and attending a delight. Lots of you folks traveled a ways to see David Church and Moe Bandy. It was a very fun weekend. Best treat for us workers and staff was Skip bring a big tray of donuts. (yum yum) Thanks Skip.
As we all prepare ourselves for a rather long cold winter, remember the band and a cast of preformers are heading down to Branson MO, to do two shows at the RFD Theater on the 26th. Hope to see you there! You will find us mingling in the foyer looking to shake your hands, give a warm hug or talk a bit with you all. Big thanks to RFD for making this happen.
Grab a hot cup of coffee and a favorite snack and enjoy Midwest Country on your TV every Saturday night, along with RFD's other great music shows. God bless from all of us folks at Midwest Country.
Summer left us rather rapidly with fall peeking its head around the corner. Our theater scheduling for last month was SUPER! With Leona & Ron Williams & Jade Jack, the Kenastons, Branson on the Road, Dick Kimmel & Co, Elizabeth Keeney, Casey Aro and our new friends the Link family. Hopefully you stopped by to see them. I almost forgot Rich Bellert's insightful words and the Midwest Country Band keeping the shows singing with good country music. A BIG THANKS to everyone. And especially to the staff for making things run smoothly, Your Fantastic! Also for all of you that stopped by for the picnic; we had a feast between the best hamburgers in the world and all the great dishes you supplied. A great surprise for the picnic was a couple from California, Kid & Nic singing and sax playing. Fun Day!
Hopefully you all enjoy the labor Day weekend. Our daughter got married on the first. That means I had to get dressed into a nice dress & shoes and the guys in tuxes. Here's a picture of us since some you were interested...
September has a great lineup of country music. Which starts with Narvel Felts, Al Meacham, Danny Elswick & Maria Rose. The following week there is a great country show featuring June Marie known for singing "I'm not Lisa", Angie Senger for writing songs about the Red Hatters and doing old country songs like Loretta Lynn, Alex Parenteau's great voice like Ray Price and has been with Miwest Country since 1993. John Rex Reeves is our featured singer for the day(nephew to Jim Reeves). He will be bringing a surprise guest. Maggie Mae will be the week after that, along with her band The Heartland Country Band and a guest Brian Hendry from Mississippi. Who Maggie met at Johnny Stringer's function a few years ago. Put on your dancing shoes and be prepared to have a good time being energized with lively music, yodeling, and good ole country songs! "Yee Haw!" Two great tribute show at the end of the month Kenny Miller FABULOUSLY doing Marty Robbins. The Midwest Country Band with Erin Lee will delight you with great music. Then the 29th Troy Cook Jr and Mike Siler tribute to Merle Haggard. Troy is a great writer and travels with David Ball member of the Grand Ole Opry. He's fabulous at Merle Haggard material.

Lots of new people coming to see us at the theater, "Welcome!" We our so glad you stopped by to say hi. "Big Howdy" from all of us. We shall have a grand time clapping hands, tapping toes, and singing along with the music as you come to live shows in the theater or watch us every Saturday night on RFD-TV.
Just some fun thoughts as we reflect on shows & new faces that came to Midwest Country so far this year.
Frank James from the Wisconsin area, will get known for his ability to write songs. He appeared on the Steve Hall Shotgun Red Variety Show. Thanks Steve for introducing a nice addition to our musical family. Frank along with many fans were sad to have missed seeing Bobby Bare this year, but the show went on with an old friend of Frank's, Bobby G Rice. They grew-up in Wisconsin together.
Mike Siler came up in May with Yar & Shar Stephens from Nashville, who was referred to us by Bruce Hoffman. A delight to all of us! He will be returning in September with Troy Cook Jr to do the tribute to Merle Haggard on 29th. Don't miss that show!
Ron E Cash doing Johnny Cash music came in May also & will be part of live entertainment on the picnic Sunday August 12. He is a great cook and will be grilling hamburgers for everyone. Also stopping by Casey Aro, The Flemming Fold, Larry Rose, and Frank James."Fun Sunday afternoon!"
Lets not forget the two Jamborees that Sherwin Linton hosted and was featured with his lovely wife Pam & the Cottonkings. Coming up from Texas was Jay & Tammy. What an energetic couple! Fabulous on the guitars and get lots of attention from the audience for their rendition of "On My Fathers Side". Thanks Jay & Tammy for taking time in your travel to see us. Sherwin also introduced us to a young fellow, Lane Moore from South Dakota. He recently won a state championship. "Congratulations Lane" Best 50's look any one of us have seen in years! Gloria Jean was also on the show and us girls in front enjoyed her a lot. She did a very good Loretta Lynn tribute, with some unfamiliar Loretta songs like "Table for Two". The more I listened to her CD the more I liked how she does it. Look for her in next years scheduling. We also enjoy Sherwins friend Leny Davis a lot. Miss Delaney Johnston and The Flemming Fold both being a real treat, in the July Jamboree. First time for the Flemming Fold, they will be coming back for the picnic.
Big Thank You for all the guests on the Jamborees and Sherwin and Pam & the the Cottonkings for making it work.
For all the rest of the entertainers, you gave us some great shows. Thank you for your time, effort in dress, and song presentation. The shows have been great! Special Thanks to Bill Travers for bringing up Laura Moe for us to enjoy. Thanks Bill.
Big thanks to Midwest Country Band for making this happen, Larry - Joe - Dan - Dehl your the best!
Next show in the theater is August 18th with Leona & Ron Williams, fiddler player Jade Jack, The Kenaston Family and the Midwest Country Band. "Fun show and looking forward to seeing you"
