Please help us welcome for the 1st time to the Clubhouse Miss Kari Garrison and her multi-talented band. This group of experienced performers will provide us with an afternoon of all genres of music including classic country, bluegrass and gospel music. This event is paid by your Activities Department.
Kari Garrison was born and raised in Denison, Texas, in a musical family where harmony-filled living room jam sessions with her dad and other family members were a part of her daily life. It was there Kari developed her love and passion for singing. After high school, Kari moved to Virginia and over the next 5 years she shared the stage, as well as the recording studio, with many of the industry’s most promising bluegrass artists. Then in 2001, following a dare from her younger sister, Kari moved to the Branson. After performing in several shows in town, Kari took a job at “The Paul Harris Show,” which changed her life forever, as it was the first time she met Clay and Tina Cooper. While working for Paul, Clay and Tina’s son Colton and Kari’s son Drew were born 11 days apart. Since that time, there has been a “family” connection that is still as strong as ever. Kari went on to sing with the legendary entertainer Moe Bandy for eight consecutive years. After years of working down the “76 Strip” from each other, Clay and Tina brought Kari into the Country Express family and love working together!
