Kick up your boots at Orlando’s Country Nights Live dinner show

It’s More Than Just Dinner and a Show

The southern-style meal begins with warm cornbread. While cornbread is often heavy, this is the fluffiest cornbread I have ever enjoyed. For the main course, we were served country fried chicken, country-style pork ribs, buttered mashed potatoes, and coleslaw. Everything was great, but the chicken was so tender, it fell off the bone.

The show begins soon after dinner is served, so while we enjoyed our meal, we were literally surrounded by phenomenal dancers, all while listening to live performances of classic country songs by Alan Jackson, Shania Twain, Garth Brooks, Dolly Parton, and more.

The second half of the show is a bit more interactive and the audience is invited to participate. Guests can get on stage to learn some line dancing (for those who prefer not to be in the spotlight, there is also a dance floor off the stage).

However, if you’re looking forward to line dancing, this is not the time to be shy. Except for a few dances, the performers were the only ones line dancing, and while they were eager to teach the dances, they’re not going to drag you on the dance floor or the stage. That means, if you’re want to “boot, scoot and boogie” you need to make it happen. If dancing is not for you, feel free to stay in your seat and listen to the live band, The Barnyard Boys Trio.

Also be sure not to wander away from your table for too long, because dessert arrives during the second half of the show.
