"Nothing beats two-steppin' with a good pair of boots." 

A little about my musical taste..

I love everything from 60s Beatles to yesterday's hip hop. Somewhere in between I'll listen to everything from old time bluegrass to French-Canadian musicians like Leonard Cohen (RIP) and MC Solaar. I don't have one specific fav genre, though I'd lean toward roll down your windows, turn up the volume 80s rock anthems over newer pop.  I guess every generation gravitates toward what they listened to as kids.

More like tap my boot to... Country two stepping of course to 90s country
