Besides our regular chuckwagon suppers featuring our own Prairie Rose Rangers, the Prairie Rose also enjoys bringing in special guests. We are privileged to present some of the finest performers in both western and country music. Artists such as Michael Martin Murphey, the Sons of the Pioneers, Roy Clark, Moe Bandy, Ronnie McDowell, Rex Allen Jr, Riders in the Sky, and Hot Club of Cowtown are just a few of the performers who have graced the stage at the Prairie Rose Opera House. As with our regular chuckwagon supper shows, these special concerts also include the wagon rides and the all-you-can-eat barbecue meal. Occasionally we will have a special concert that does not include the meal. Please go to the individual event listings here at our website for complete details. Concert tickets for special guests & events are non-refundable unless noted.
Susie McEntire will bring her inspirational country music show to the Prairie Rose.
Susie McEntire Eaton's smile is a genuine one -- and a familiar one. With more than a passing physical resemblance to her sister, Reba McEntire, Susie also shares her big sister's musical giftings. But Susie has directed her talents to the country gospel side of American Roots music, garnering much acclaim from her peers and fans alike. In addition to numerous awards and nominations from TNN, GMA, and CCMA, Susie has been named "Artist of the Year" several times in the field of Positive Country Music. She has also scored four #1 singles on the Positive Country radio charts. However, more than her notoriety, it is Susie's kindness and determination in the midst of difficulties, and her genuine compassion for others that inspires people around her.

Country Music star returns to the Prairie Rose by popular demand.
Nashville recording artist, Ronnie McDowell is returning to the Prairie Rose. Ronnie has had almost 40 Country hits, including 14 that made the Top 10 and two that went all the way to #1. Among those hits are such classics as "Older Women," "Watchin' Girls Go By," "Wandering Eyes," and "You're Gonna Ruin My Bad Reputation." Prior to his success on the Country Music charts, Ronnie had a million-selling pop hit with "The King Is Gone," which was a tribute to Elvis Presley.
The legendary Sons of the Pioneers are returning to the Prairie Rose.
In 1934, the Sons of the Pioneers basically created what we now call Western Music. Now in their 85th year, the Sons of the Pioneers continue to delight and inspire with their classic songs like "Tumbling Tumbleweeds," "Cool Water," and "(Ghost) Riders in the Sky." Longtime member and Trail Boss of the Sons of the Pioneers, Tommy Nallie, is joined by Ken Lattimore, John Fullerton, and Paul Elliott, along with Roy Rogers Jr. (Dusty,) whose dad started the band. It's the tight, vocal harmonies and interesting instrumental arrangements that put the Sons of the Pioneers in both the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Western Music Hall of Fame. Their classic sound remains to this day.
