Or: “I Won’t Back Down” – Jason Owen Approx 2.57 mins

Count In: 16 counts from start of track. Approx 114 bpm
Restart: There is 1 restart during the 1st wall after 32 counts – restart facing 3.00

Notes: In memory of the victims of the Las Vegas tragedy October 1st 2017.
Also remembering the great Tom Petty RIP October 2nd 2017.
Jason Aldean performed this song on ‘Saturday Night Live’ following the shooting at his concert in Las Vegas on October 1st 2017.
Never forget the innocent lives that were taken away so soon. Never forget that United We Stand.
The artist Tom Petty sadly passed away the next day and the tribute that Jason Aldean performed inspired me to write a dance to the same song – special thanks to one of my closest friends Donna Stretton for bringing it to my attention.

Thank you Rachael for this beginner dance. I will be subbing for an instructor in February and will try and get this on the floor with your notes. My bucket list for 2018 is to get to at least one of your Saturday workshops.
I just discovered a technical issue printing large print since this is the second stepsheet it has happened to today. The small print is fine but the large cuts off the last:
