Katie Petersen Wins Fiddle Player of the Year

When it comes to playing the fiddle, it’s hard to find anyone who does it better or with as much heart as our lovely Katie. This past year she has spent many extra hours practicing and taking her talent to the next level and we love seeing her recognized for all her hard work. This award was an especially high honor because of the other incredibly skilled fiddle players who were nominated and grace stages day after day in Branson, Missouri. Other nominees included Nathan Agdeppa of The Baldknobbers, Wayne Massengale of Grand Country, Amy Dutton of The Duttons, Janice Martin of A Janice Martin Cirque Show, and Louis Darby of The Sons of Britches.

The Petersens Win Little Big Show of the Year

The Little Big Show of the Year award is given to a show that performs in a theater that seats less than 500 people. We are so honored to be given this award and to play week after week in the Little Opry Theater. The small size of our theater allows us to interact with our audience and provides an intimate feel and connection unlike any other venue in Branson. Other nominees included The Sons of Britches, Johnson Strings, A Tribute to George Strait Dinner Show, Doo-Wop & The Drifters, and 50 Years of Kenny Rogers.
