Quite a few professional athletes go into broadcasting after they retire, and provide colorful commentary or coverage of their former sport. But there’s one who’s made quite a name for himself as a star of stage and screen—a theater stage, that is!

As quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers, NFL legend Terry Bradshaw won four Super Bowl titles in a six-year period. Not only has Bradshaw got quite an arm — he’s got quite a set of pipes, too! And you can catch him in a special limited-engagement run of his live show. He’s appearing in “The Terry Bradshaw Show Live!” for a few nights only at the Clay Cooper Theatre in Branson.

Bradshaw earned many awards during his playing career, including induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the College Football Hall of Fame. He’a considered one of the greatest QBs of all time.

Bradshaw retired in 1984 and soon after signed a contract with CBS as a football game analyst for CBS Sports. He also worked as a studio analyst for NFL Today and won three Sports Emmy Awards.

The multi-talented Bradshaw has recorded six music albums in different genres: country, western and gospel. He even had a Top 20 single with his cover of “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry,” and charted other hits like “The Last Word in Lonesome is Me” and “Until You.” 

Combining comedy, musical talent, and storytelling, Bradshaw brings some great fun, music, and stories to the Ozarks. You definitely don’t want to miss out on this former pigskin performer’s show with hilarious anecdotes and his famous self-deprecating humor. Talk about connecting with your receivers!!

You’ll laugh at his funny comedy, hear some of his hot gospel songs, and even learn some exclusive stories from his life — Bradshaw’s written or co-written five books! 

The show lasts about  2 hours and is appropriate for all ages.
