A lot of his fans know and love him for his portrayals of Hank Williams Sr., in two television movies, and he always includes a tribute to the "King of Country" in his show. His PBS special "Hank" was voted public televisions best show of the year in 1977.
Every year, Jim creates a brand new show from scratch. He gives tribute to country greats throughout the show, and every year has a tribute to one of country''s finest stars,this year it is JIM REEVES
One of the great things about Branson is that you get to ''meet'' the stars, and the Jim Owen Show is no different. Jim spends about 20 minutes before the show milling about the lobby of the theater talking with his guests. He also spends about 15 minutes at intermission posing for photos and signing autographs. And of course, he is available at the end of the show. This is one Branson show you don''t want to miss! 17th Big Year in Branson
