This song and dance were both written especially for an event held by ‘Country Line Dance

Association’ (CLDA) Singapore in August 2010.  Dave was kind enough to fit this song into his busy schedule and I thank him for his effort… just home from a tour and straight into recording!

 

It was my pleasure to write a dance to his song and I look forward to

catching up with Dave and the Singapore linedancers  very soon!

 

Hope you enjoy both the song and the dance.  See you on the floor sometime…. Jan
