This song is new to me.

I found it by accident and consider myself very fortunate to have done so!

It’s how I like my country music, simple and with a good beat.

Thanks you Johnny Rodriquez!

The dance is also simple, but interesting I hope….

You  be the judge!

See you on the floor sometime… Jan
