BRANSON, MO - Another tragedy for Branson's oldest country music show, The Baldknobbers.

Radio station KTTS News reports that Dennis Mabe has died from a medical problem at the age of 48.

He was the son of Bill Mabe, a co-owner of the Baldknobbers, who died a year ago last week.  Dennis Mabe was a featured vocalist who had been performing on the Baldknobbers Jamboree for 20 years.

The Mabe brothers started out as gospel singers in Nixa, often singing at funerals.

Their 1,700-seat Baldknobbers Jamboree Show Theater in Branson was built in 1968.
