Alan Jackson, Good Time & a line dancing record

I'm really into AJ's new song Good Time! It's one of those songs that I turn up... it puts me in one of those good - I'm singing while driving my truck with the windows down - bopping along - kinda songs.

Alan Jackson is trying to set a world record for the longest line dance spanning cities and according to , states. Yeah, it said, "It takes a massive casting call to put together a music video on this scale." I want to know why I didn't get the memo! I would have been all over that!

Well, I'm looking forward to seeing this video at the end of the month when it's released. Very cool!

Here's the Good Time Line Dance on youtube...
