Good old Merle Haggard and a good old country song…..
I still love the simplicity of the old country songs.
The dance is simple too but you will need to keep your mind on the job,
and that’s because the pattern will make you think — just a little bit…
mainly because some walls are 48 counts and some are 32…..
That’s just the way the music goes, but it makes it interesting I think….

I hope you haven’t gone past appreciating this type of country music because it
was the basis, the roots of country line dancing…. And I will ALWAYS love it.
See you on the floor sometime.... Jan
