Her and her husband, Tate just released a CD with their band, IDYLTIME. The band is raising money to help pay for the outrageous hospital bills. She is still in the hospital and fighting to get better. Please support this amazing couple.

In addition to square dancing, the Hokum Hoedown features some good old-fashioned, swingin', two-steppin' western dancing. Young and old, couples and families, tattooed hipsters and ten-gallon cowboys ... the Hokum Hoedown is a come-as-you-are, hand-clappin' hootenanny for all.
