Toby Keith has given us a string of Country Dance hits. The classic ‘How Do You Like Me Now’ is a favorite for the couples dance El Paso and ‘You Ain’t Much Fun’ is a great Sidekick. Now, the solid country hitmaker gives us some more line dance music!

‘Drinks After Work’ made our list of the Top Country Dance Songs of 2013. The follow up single is another line dance smash, titled ‘Shut Up and Hold On.’ Although the novelty song may not have a strong showing on the Country Music charts, it’s finding it’s way to Country Night clubs. This week we feature the line dance choreographed by one of the most popular Country Dance instructors in New England, Paula Frohn with Ed Evangelista.
