The Aluminum Show

Metal breathes life. Ductwork creatures stir and come to life right before the audience’s very eyes. The line between inanimate and human blurs and the stage comes alive…

Take a journey to a parallel world of laughter and imagination inhabited by remarkable creatures and people formed of equal parts delight and wonder. Experience this multi-sensory lesson in creativity with the entire family.

Music City Hit Makers

These are the most famous people you’ve never heard of. Three of Nashville’s elite songwriters perform and share the stories behind some of the biggest hits they’ve penned for today’s most iconic stars. With over 30 number one hits, these Grammy- winning writers have had their songs recorded by Kenny Chesney, Carrie Underwood, Blake Shelton, Lady Antebellum, Kelly Clarkson and many more. These artists will not just play great music but will tell the stories behind the songs and about the artists who recorded them. Come hear the Music City Hit-Makers perform the songs you know and love, backed by a live string orchestra!

Ronnie Milsap

What the kids are doing today in redefining country is nothing new. They’re simply carrying on a master plan Milsap laid down years ago. 40 NUMBER ONE HITS.  That’s more than Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson COMBINED. Ronnie was a pioneer in moving country music beyond its rural roots and into the mainstream of modern music. With music that ranges from the heart breaking “Smokey Mountain Rain” or the uplifting “I Wouldn’t Have Missed It for the World,” Ronnie brings a night of number one songs to the Cedar Valley.

The Oak Ridge Boys

An American classic. Their unique, close harmony is one of the most recognizable sounds in the music industry. The four-part harmonies and upbeat songs of The Oak Ridge Boys have spawned dozens of Country hits like “Bobbie Sue” and “American Made” as well as pop hits like “Elvira.” Bass Richard Sterban’s bass solo in Elvira is one of the most recognized lines in 80’s pop music. Every time they step before an audience, the Oaks bring four decades of charted singles, and 50 years of tradition, to a stage show widely acknowledged as among the most exciting anywhere.

And just recently, after winning five GRAMMYs, nine GMA Dove Awards, induction into The Grand Ole Opry and the Country Music Hall of Fame, The Oak Ridge Boys were recently presented with the Bob Hope Award for Excellence in Entertainment by the Congressional Medal of Honor Society – recognizing their work with The American Legion. The group accepted the award on August 8, 2015 at the Nashville Salutes Gala surrounded by 25 Medal of Honor recipients.
