Mike
Mike McAdoo has been a professional musician since his late teens and is gifted with musical abilities that very few possess. This coupled with a dedicated work ethic make Mike one of the outstanding guitarists of our day. Mike’s superb talents also extend to bass, banjo and dobro. Early in his career, he spent several years “on the road”, followed by 10 years and over 3,500 concerts in Branson, MO with such acts as Mel Tillis, Shoji Tabuchi and the Osmond Family. Wayne Osmond has been quoted as saying that Mike is without question the best guitarist the Osmonds have ever worked with. As a studio musician Mike has recorded with over 100 internationally-known artists as well as having the distinction of being recognized 3 times as the best lead guitarist in Branson, and also being inducted into the Branson Music Hall of Fame. As a songwriter, Mike’s own songs have been recorded by other artists. As a producer, he has produced albums for other artists, as well as his own material. He currently has personal instrumental CD’s available at CD Baby "Guitar Texas" and "Out of the Shadows", has done a gospel album with friends (“On a Hill”), and has several fantastic guitar teaching videos from beginner to advanced available for purchase.
During his time in Branson, Mike renewed his relationship with the Lord that had begun at an early age.

Mike was offered a "deal he could't refuse" to return to Branson as the lead guitarist of the new Country Tonite Show featuring the Oak Ridge Boys. He moved to Branson on August 15, 2007, but he and David will continue their twosome and recording opportunites on a part time basis The First Christmas Gift, written and sung by Mike, was released for December 07 airplay by Glory Train Records and charted No. 2 on the International Christmas Chart.
