These ladies have a great sound and their lyrics are  different from most country singers.  I first heard them at Tamworth in January 2003 and  knew that I would write to something of theirs in the future........ and as it turned out it was the very near future.  Have a listen and see what you think. If you like country
then I'm sure you will like their sound. They really are sisters and they really are 'aussies' and they really do make a lovely sound together.  Yep.... I like them!

The dance is not hard to master. It has a 'different' sort of a charleston step and the beat of the song gives the dance a nice feel. Hope you enjoy it.
See you on the floor sometime....  Jan
