There was a time when I loved blues dancing more than anything. I got excited about every blues dance and went to every one that I could. I even liked blues more than lindy.
Then about a year or so ago, I lost my passion for blues. I'm not sure what it was exactly. I still liked it, but it just didn't do much for me anymore. I still went to blues dances, but not nearly as often, and I didn't look forward to them like I used to. I still had some good blues dances every now and then, but I kind of got bored with the dance in general.
That changed this past weekend at the Southbound Blues Exchange. From the moment I showed up at Friday's dance, I was once again hooked. Whereas I would have only one or two great blues dances a night in the past, I was having one awesome dance after another. I met so many great people this weekend, and my passion for blues was reignited.
Thank you so much Kenneth Shipp and the rest of the SBX team for putting this together! You brought blues to Nashville in the best way possible, and the work you put into it paid off. Thank you for all you did to make this weekend possible and for bringing back my love of blues!
