CVSuite™ has released a list of Top 10 Music Cities You Need to Know About and our very own Branson, MO is number one. According to the article, a list of 817 cities were compared against each other based on the economic contribution of musicians, singers, and related workers. By comparing the ratio of music-related jobs in each city to that of the United States a whole, they were able to narrow down a Top 10 in the country. 

Here is what they had to say about Branson: 

"When most people think about Missouri, they probably think of great barbeque, Budweiser, and the St. Louis Cardinals. But nestled in this state is a thriving arts scene, epitomized by the town of Branson. With a population of 55,852, this creative powerhouse boasts a music location quotient of 3.14, with a total of 369 musicians, singers, and other related workers. This means that Branson has an impressive 3.14 times the concentration of musicians and singers when compared to the national average. This is why Branson, Missouri is number one on our list and boasts a Creative Vitality Index value of 2.09. Branson’s creative economy as a whole generated $79.3 million in sales in 2018 and employs 1,606 people. 

Branson has dozens of theaters offering more than 100 live shows with Broadway, country, pop, swing, rock ‘n’ roll, big band, magic, and comedy performances. A trip to Branson is not complete without experiencing Silver Dollar City, an 1880s theme park where you’ll find authentic Ozark history with crafts, eateries, six festivals, and thrilling rides. Ozark Mountain visitors can enjoy three lakes, perfect for fishing and boating, as well as golf, hiking, and horseback riding. Branson has more than 200 outlet stores, an array of specialty stores, boutiques, and galleries at Branson Landing and a Historic Downtown filled with quaint shops.

Live music has been central to Branson’s heritage since the 1960s and the city has attracted millions of visitors each year with its live music shows, family attractions, outdoor recreational activities, and the Ozark Mountains’ natural beauty. Live shows are still cited as Branson’s number one attraction and tourism driver by its visitors. Check out www.ExploreBranson.com for more information on this vibrant music city!"
