3 Reasons the Country Tonite Theater is the Best Show in Pigeon Forge

Country music is one of America’s most popular genres, and has produced some of the greatest musical legends to date. Country Tonite is a variety show that performs many of the songs originated by these musical legends as a tribute to their distinguished country music careers. As Country Tonite is celebrating its 20th season in Pigeon Forge, we thought it would be a good idea to share all of the great aspects of this show that make it the best show in Pigeon Forge.

  1. It has been voted show of the year by North American Country Music Awards every year since 2001.
