In Their Words: "A few days after we put out 'Getting Ready to Get Down' as a single, my great friend, Doug Rice, discovered an amazing homemade video online. It was a guy in his dance studio teaching the world line-dancing steps to 'Get Down!' It was totally amazing.
We contacted Cef — who it turns out is a line-dancing instructor from Idaho — told him how great we thought it was, and next thing you know, we had even more footage to work with. We knew this stuff had to be shared. Cef is a great guy and I thank him (and his wonderful class!) wholeheartedly for sharing his pure talent and enthusiasm with me … and letting me share it with you. Doug worked really hard to bring the finished product you’re about to see together.
I hope you like Cef’s 'Getting Ready to Get Down,' as much as I do!" — Josh Ritter
