Country music, the sound that gave birth to Modern Western Square Dancing, has evolved over the years.  Gone are the days of a three-piece band, replaced with a full orchestra recorded with modern studio techniques.

This episode is dedicated to the contemporary sound of country music as used in today's MWSD.

Here are the callers and singing calls in this episode:
