There was a time when a visit to a music theater meant there was a good chance you were going to get your fill of country music. That’s still true to some extent, because our theaters do have some great country-, bluegrass- and gospel-themed shows. But these days, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Many visitors to our Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg rental cabins are surprised to hear about the wide range of entertainment styles to be enjoyed on our stages.
• Oldies Rock
You can hear the classic rock and roll sounds of the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s—from Elvis to Motown—at venues like American Oldies Theater, the Grand Majestic Theater and Memories Theater, all in Pigeon Forge.
Almost all area shows have elements of comedy blended it, but yuks and chuckles are the main course at venues like Sweet Fanny Adams Theatre in Gatlinburg and the Comedy Barn Theater in Pigeon Forge.
• Competition Shows
Some shows defy description, but you can be sure that performers and audience members will go head-to-head and enjoy a multicourse meal in the process at shows like Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede, Lumberjack Feud and the Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Show, all in Pigeon Forge.
