Although this dance has 64 counts, it is still easy and slowish and very much
within the dancing prowess of most people.  I have liked the song for years and was pleased to find country artists singing it. Raul Malo is the lead singer for the Mavericks, and everyone knows who Trish Yearwood is -  and that's about as
country as it gets I reckon.  Hope you enjoy it. 
See you on the floor sometime....  Jan
