#1 Branson Show on TripAdvisor

Thanks to the one of a kind performance that The Petersens bring to the stage, they’ve been honored with continued praise. One of those honors being the #1 Branson Show on TripAdvisor! It’s because of the incredible audiences and community that surround the Petersens that make these achievements possible. Many of their fans grew up listening to bluegrass music, but The Petersens, one of the younger performing groups in Branson, have succeeded in introducing the genre to a new generation of fans and it shows!

Success outside of Branson

The Petersens enjoy working on projects outside of the Branson landscape and have been compiling a variety of well known covers in their unique bluegrass style. One of their recent successes has been their Jolene cover. Just head on over to their YouTube channel to see some of their latest projects!
