This coming Saturday afternoon at 12.05, join us for more Good Ol' Country with Michael Lance. Apart from being one quarter of the amazing Metro Vocal Group, he's lived and breathed country music since he was small. Michael was born in Lincoln, Nebraska, and raised on beef, corn, and potatoes. At a young age, he travelled North America with his family's Country and Western band, and developed a love for those great story driven songs, sung by some of the greatest story tellers of all time. Stand up, find a partner, and dance the two-step to some....Good Ol' Country. (Saturdays, 12.05pm-1pm, Facebook: @nebraskamike)
