Don’t It Make You Want To Dance Line Dance – Chris Ledoux Remembered

In 1980, the movie Urban Cowboy launched a national ‘country club’ craze. Establishments like Gilley’s, owned by Mickey Gilley, were popping up all over the nation. Inside, people were two-stepping and riding mechanical bulls like John Travolta and Debra Winger.

One of the many hit songs to come off the Urban Cowboy soundtrack was Bonnie Raitt’s ‘Don’t It Make You Want To Dance.’ In 2002, rodeo-country star Chris Ledoux re-cut the song for his album ‘After The Storm.’ Now, 10 years later the country line dance community is honoring Chris Ledoux by dancing to his version of the Urban Cowboy classic.  Sadly, Ledoux passed in 2005 at the age of 56. One listen to this infectious song and you realize how much fun life can be if you start dancing a little bit more.
