hatfielddisasterlogoAs Most of you know I visited Pigeon Forge last month. Every business was starting to get ready for Christmas. I would love to visit during the holidays. I can only imagine the great shows and how beautiful everything looks during the holidays. I went to the shows while visiting Pigeon Forge. My friend and I had a blast. I hope I can make another trip in July next year.

The Hatfield & McCoy Christmas Disaster Dinner Show
A wise man once said, “Anything worth doin’ is worth doin’ right.” And the kinfolk at the Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Show couldn’t agree more. Which is exactly why, this holiday season, the Hatfield & McCoy “Christmas Disaster” will be an absolute calamity!

Last year the holidays were left in an utter state of bewilderment after our kuntry kuzins got hold of em’, throwin’ this, shootin’ at that..why HECK..we heard tell that there were even some ghosts involved! That’s right, GHOSTS! This weren’t no “Hallows Eve” tale, no sir, but a direct representation of how us hillbillies like to fire up the Ol’ Yule log. And then pitch it at somebody! Why it’s the true meaning of Christmas at the Hatfield & McCoy! Lest ye not forget that Ma’ herself is addin’ a little somethin’ extra to the dinner table this year and it is shor to be a hit! It’ll be a dinner table like y’all ain’t never seen before!

These two families ain’t the kind of folk that rest on their laurels so this holiday season they’re bringin’ out the big guns and plan on makin’ the “12 Days of Christmas” feel like it lasts all week! Why there’ll be 9 ladies dancin’, if ye include them McCoy boys, a few of them “Calling Birds”, Ma’s moonshine still will have it’s pipes a’ pipin’ and word has it that some French hens will be in town. They best look out fer Pa though, cause he don’t take kindly to strangers.

So this year fer Christmas try on somethin’ a little less stuffy by havin’ supper with them Hatfields & McCoys! It promises to be the Fightinest, Funniest, Belly-Fillinest, Yultide Feud you’ll ever experience with all of your kinfolk around ye! And there just ain’t no better way to welcome Santee Claus to town! And hey folks, we’ll be sure to remind y’all the “reason fer all the season”. That’s because we plan on “pepperin’” ye with BUCKSHOT!!

Christmas at the Smoky Mountain Opry
While backstage trying to get a look at some of the brand new additions to the incredible “Christmas at the Smoky Mountain Opry”, a familiar sound rang throughout the hallways. Not only did we recognize the sound but also we could have sworn we also smelled a Christmas tree. That’s the power of Christmas music folks and the vocal coach at the Smoky Mountain Opry was hard at work with some of the singers ironing out the some of the newest songs to be featured in this year’s version of “Christmas at the Smoky Mountain Opry”. Last year the show had just about something for every Christmas appetite from a magical wonderland where sugar plum fairies and toy soldiers played hand in hand with our friend Slim Chance, to a broken down hillbilly homestead where all the boys sang opera songs despite the fact that Santa himself was only a few feet away.

Most of that last paragraph sure does make you yearn for Christmastime, doesn’t it? Even as far back as September 2nd the cast and crew at the Smoky Mountain Opry have been hard at work raising the bar of what has been, up until now, the most sought after ticket and successful Christmas show in the Southeastern United States, “Christmas at the Smoky Mountain Opry”. We sat down with General Manager Robert Kalina and asked him what we could expect this year.

“Without giving too much away” he said with a look of secrecy, “we’ve spent a great deal of time, effort and money into this year’s Christmas production. Our world caliber aerialists Simone and LeAnn are choreographing something unlike any show in the region has ever done before, there are new songs with some new orchestration and this year… you can expect to see Santa a little more than before. Also we added a little extra something to our Nativity, which is the largest of its kind. We always want to remind our audiences of exactly why we celebrate Christmas so the Nativity and birth of Christ is an extremely important portion of the show.”

Last year the Smoky Mountain Opry Theater set records in attendance, highest grossing show and “Fan Favorite” as voted on by travelers to the area. Even before entering this grand venue located directly on the Parkway you will be mesmerized by the over 2.5 million lights that blanket it’s façade and the sheer magnitude of Santa’s sleigh high atop the roof and maybe, just maybe you will be swept away to the same magical wonderland where the sugar plum fairies and toy soldiers play as we spoke of before, paying us no mind despite the fact that Santa himself was only a few feet away. He is indeed. He’s right inside. Why not come say hello?
