We are 4 piece band that plays mostly danceable geezer rock and some 70’s dance music along with some recent hits byOutKast and Elle King ..along with some Bruce and joe Jackson

I would like to add some danceable up beat / sing along country tunes . This is what We are working on so far

Boot Scoot Boogie
Wagon Wheel

Head over Boots
Friends in Low Places
Toes.


I thinking of the following ...not sure if they are too corny or ridiculous

Achy Breaky Heart
Red Solo Cup


And these also ??
No Shoes No Shirt
A Less Less Talk
This is How We Roll

Drink In My Hand

There Was This Girl by Riley Green
Red Dirt Road

Redneck Neck Woman
Country Girl





Thoughts on these selections ?

It would not get you may gigs here, but don't know about your neck of the woods. We do Guitars and Cadillacs every now and again. The crowd loves it and it's 2 chords, so no lengthy rehearsal required.

Take a little ride is just the chorus to Pearl Jam’s Alive sped up a hair (E-G-D-A). I played it in my old band and would sneak the Alive solo in it at the end when we jammed it out.
I saw a video of someone doing Old Town Road and it was the same chord progression capo’ed on the 5th fret.

In this single act you’ve done more for humanity than Ghandi. You may not have known this but Wagon Wheel was written by Hitler, Stalin, and Mussolini during the early days of WWII. It was later arranged by Pol Pot. I mean, if you feel good about supporting such things, then play it. I choose not to support such evil.

This, and include Achy, Breaky Heart on the absolutely do not play list. Rawhide, on the other hand, :aok

Now I'd personally throw Wagon Wheel and Achy Breaky on the set list just to be contrarian :banana


*Achy Breaky actually seems to have come back around in terms of popularity lately.

**I didn't enjoy performing Wagon Wheel much in the past, but the other band members liked it and a ton of other people do too.

I had some “great” ideas, but in an un-TGP moment actually reread the OP; I see danceable is mentioned. So maybe some classics like “Get Rhythm” by Johnny Cash (awesome if you’re the guitar in the band), or Dwight Yoakum’s “Guitars, Cadillacs”, something a bit “hip” if you’re primarily a rock band.

I suppose the spaghetti western medley won’t fit...
