Stampede Song Guide

Stampede is fast approaching and i fear that all the non country fans are ill prepared for the hooting and hollering of what is to come.
I am aware that you are not country fans on a regular basis, but if you plan to go out to a pub, bar, club, or to Mrs Nashville North herself i would recomment you brush up on some of the popular songs, girls love a man that knows his country, or as Chris Cagle would say - Chicks Dig It.

Below is a list of songs that you NEED to know if you plan to get the full Stampede Experience. Its not nearly enough, but a good list of starters. And the majority of the artists are key for further study. It is also HIGHLY recommended that you learn to two step (even if this means practicing alone in your room). Especially for you gentleman. Even a girl that DOES NOT dance with random boys will make an exception for a man that asks her to two-step. I would know, because I am one of those girls.

So here it is! Your Guide to the Stampede night scene. Derived from my extensive archive of country music and hand picked from previous experience at many stampede locations, including working at Ranchmans. (note that these are only upbeat songs. You should also reseach some of the slower songs from these artists if you want to get in on the slow dancing ;) Popular Artists are marked with a star)
