Imagine the clear blue sky above, trees lining the roads, the river clear and inviting. The only thing stopping you and your friends from dancing is an idea of how to go about it.
Pop those beer cans open and form a line. Cheers to line dancing! Yes, that’s right.
Who knew that forming a line would be so much fun? These ladies certainly did.
Let the good times roll.
Set to Alan Jackson’s hit single “Chattahoochee”, this group of twelve women with their cowboy hats and boots set about dancing to a sequence of steps all performed at the same time to the country western tune.
Line dancing consists of patterned foot movements set about to a certain number of counts that are repeated all throughout the song. Each dance is to have a number of walls. The wall is the direction where the dancers face at any given time.
These cowgirls begin the dance by facing the crowd, tapping and counting to the beat.
After a sequence of steps they face left and repeat the previous steps.
To the left this time!
Line dancing started in the United States in the seventies and eighties and has influenced many cultures, creating varieties based on different regions. It is quite fun and a great way to loosen up with strangers.
Just form a line and follow the steps. There’s no need to be perfect so long as you have fun!
There is no physical contact and no pressure to outdo each other. Just look at them go!
Flowing like the “Chattahoochee.”
Forming the southern half of Alabama and Georgia, the Chattahoochee river is as picturesque as they come. It’s such a beauty that a local poet by the name of Sindey Lanier wrote one called “The song of the Chattahoochee”. No wonder one of Georgia’s own sons named a song after it!
After all, if your home gives you memories of good times, wouldn’t you want to immortalize that? Alan Jackson certainly did!
The upbeat melody fills the listener’s mind with images of nature, vast rivers and wide open scenic views meant to be shared with friends and family. The place is perfect for all sorts of outdoor activities. From hiking, to mountain biking, to splashing around and just having a good time, this piece of land is a little bit of heaven on earth.
Georgia owns a piece of paradise.
Pretty sure there’s always a reason to smile and dance for anyone who wakes up knowing they have this magnificent river near their house.
No wonder country music most often talks about the beauty of the native land and the feelings and memories made there. These artists make it a point to describe with words how they feel about their homes and all the moments created there.
These line dancing ladies sure are enjoying the moment! It wouldn’t be a surprise if this performance reminded them of their homes and their earlier years growing up.
One viewer commented,
“Great song and great dancers, lovely smile on this end.”
Hats off, ladies!
So the next time you feel like going on an adventure, make sure you polish those dancing boots and dust off that hat.
Line dancing is perfect for the timid and shy as it incorporates basic steps in the company of fellow strangers.
A drink or two wouldn’t hurt either.
