I like this singer, Robert Mizzell.  He’s new to me and I appreciate his country style.

This song reminds me of Alan Jackson’s song ‘You Can’t Have It All” which I wrote

to  many years ago.  It’s slow and sensitive and just plain nice to listen to.  I definitely give him 10 out of 10!         Hope you feel the same way …… and that you enjoy the waltz too.

See you on the floor sometime…. Jan
